Only $5k for your block? I'm changing it up and getting a Honeybadger instead of the 3MI long rod and it's $4800. hah

Sleeves and case alone would be ~$2.5k, unless you plan on reusing your case?

I also get good prices on the machine labor, assembly, etc. from the local shop. I certainly won't be complaining about the price ahah

All this talk about deals :/

I'll be out 9.1k with a cosworth short block, installs, and some little stuff

EDIT: STUFF I'm doing:

Cosworth Short Block
FIC 1000cc
Accessport
73mm intake

Then install all my parts I already have:

Catless TBE
TGVs
Turbo
Gauges
Inlet
Ebcs
Up pipe
Ewg (VTA)
other stuff

The other parts are not costing me a dime since I already own them and are just being installed when the car is put back together since the motor got tore out.

Good (or weird news) they tested my old short block that was removed and the compression test and leak down came back good besides the slightly lower compression on C3. No scoring on the cylinder walls or any damage... weird.

Anyone need a 2.5L short block with 47k on it?

How much do you want for that block Corey? I really do want a project motor.

So speaking of building motors, I found some brand new 05-07 STI coils for $700. Another military guy is hooking me up since he doesn't need them. Fortune auto I think, but I can't remember.

I was going to post it up on nasioc for 850 obo but we can work something out if you want. I would at least need a deposit on it first then you can pay me the rest later.

What's the price of a used block anyway? What do you guys think its worth?

Was probably going to sell mine for around $650, or at least start my asking price there.

There's nothing really wrong with mine... once the block is out you can do ring lands for pretty cheap can't you?

I'll list it for 800 and see what happens.

Radar detectors: Escort 9500ix (with the live/GPS feature), the Valentine One, or the Escort Redline (pretty much increased range over the 9500)?

Opinions? Go!

Stealth installs aren't that bad... It's only a few wires, not like you gotta tear the whole car apart to do it

Also, v1

I'm going to go with the V1. That's what my research seems to be leaning towards

Also, for the block, we're going T-Sleeves with o'rings

Redline is the best of the bunch.

V1 gives you detection location and a slightly better laser detection. The 9500 gives you similar radar detection but GPS which can be both good and bad.

Someone has confirmed they will sell me their black bugeye in awesome condition but kind of high miled with blown block (but they were the OCD keep **** fixed new parts all the time type person) for 2500. It's in Michigan so our only worry is getting out of there with a trailer on the back of an SUV.

How's the snow up there right now?

Ohio has been untouched except for some flurries, and I don't think MI is any worse off. Don't be a vagina about a bit of snow.

Might as well buy my friends. Can add/remove anything you want for the right price.
