Okay so I have 3 options.

Option 1. Buy another SR and be able to drive the rest of the season and at dday and do a mild build on the other motor over winter.

Option 2. Fix my motor. Which Pavel wont be able to even look at until early October so DDay is out of the question. Put it in for whatever time of the season is left and then pull it again because the original plan was to do a mild build over the winter anyways.

Option 3. Say fuck it for the rest of the season. Build motor over winter. Get paid.


And when I say "build" all I really mean is do headwork/cams/2871r/ etc. The works pretty much.

Motor is RT's shop. He still has to tear it down and such and let me know what all is fucked. Really wish I had a garage so I could be doing this myself.

So this dude has this motor for sale

http://www.jdmchicago.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26384

Freshly rebuilt with some upgraded stuff etc
But has some noise in the bottom end now.
Would it be a good idea to buy this then fix whatever is broken which is probably the same shit that's whats up with my motor and then have a minty motor. Or do yall think its that cheap for a reason. Opinions?

Go check it out, pull the pan and mains and check em out. See if the rod bearings have any play. Would take like 20 minutes, ive done that shit

Just saw it was done by class one, if thats true they do good shit. Check the date on the receipt to see when it was built

I wouldn't dude. It's easy for someone to post/ say that it's good. But you gotta install it, then switch it over and get it running.
Then run the risk of it not running and starting back from square one. Just take whatever
your going to spend on this engine and rebuild yours, that way you at least know that everything is and will be fresh.

Oem internals and call it a day.

agree with trucky for sure, fuck putting that shit together and fixing what you thought was the noise, only to find out there was more than 1 noise or some shit.

rebuild what you got, if you have spare cash pick that other one up but only if you plan on doing a full rebuild and just want a good spare..

So I'm not sure exactly whats going on with the motor but its been at the dudes shop for like a month a half. Whatever.

Sold my Mooneyes and got Edgars old Corsica from Kevin. (I have a thing for Edgars old parts)
Got one of those Stance steering column bushings and sort of put that in.
And ordered some blue window nets to compliment my blue harness.
Ive also put some vinyl on it here and there so I'll post a picture of that when I get around to it.
I really want a red seat now. Trying to find someone to trade my black Zeta for their red Vios, but I think I might just sell it and order the Maxis.
