The car originally had a 2.3L built stroker. I decided to remove that to sell and re-install my 7-bolt that I pulled out when it was still running. Here are some pics of the recent work to prove the parts and how nice it really is.

ACT 2900 and resurfaced flywheel:



1g Head: This pic was taken when I first pulled it out, you can see how clean it the head is and how often I changed the oil. My 2g head had a brown tint to the walls. Also I forgot to add that the intake manifold was gasket matched which helps flow a bit.

Lol. Is it weird that you were the first thing I thought of after I saw it?
Yeah it is, I figured that memorable night we spent on bareback mountain would have been the first thing you thought of, this car the second :D

Wow. If my T/A sold and I hadn't picked up this 1g AWD shell to gutswap, I would seriously 100% buy that. It's exactly what I was looking for and in the price range.


FAWk :(

Best of luck!
