    :( I wish I wasn't as far away as an american could be from this.

    This is a GREAT autocrosser and can be rigid as hell for any sport. The hardtop isn't an easy find in 88, nor is the 5 speed in 88 / 89

    thank you for the positive comment on the car! i hate to let it go but two cars gets expensive. it is an extremely fine handling car. its got the 7-rib redtop engine, and the reinforced transmition that i think they started in 87?

    the seven girdle block is a kouki thing. The red top would be an aftermarket thing. You're talking about a JDM engine at that point.

    no, in the mr2 at i belive 1987 or 88 they switched to a 7-ribbed block. the printing on the top of the valve cover was changed from blue writing to red writing, hence the reason people call this the red top version, at least for the mr2.

    False. the lettering on the head doesn't designate the specs of the head. Red Top is usually a Corolla (Levin) found head. in 88 and 89 the SCs had a 7 rib block. The extra ribbing is because it was Yamaha built. Again, check it out.

    And again, I would set you up with a trade in a heartbeat, but you're all the way over there.
