    To make a long story short, Ive got a kid on the way and have to let loose of this partially completed project. I paid $6,500 for it in March of 06 and have put an additional $5,000 back into it already. My loss is definately your gain. It recently recieved its second b18c swap this time with a heavily built bottom end. "The asking price is $7,000 firm, no trades" Selling the car at this price puts me out $4,500+ dollars but it must go. *For an additional $500 I will leave the audiovox alarm system installed, and an Ingalls Front Ball Joint and the Ingalls Rear SmartArm™ Adjustable Link (Polyurethane) "for camber" uninstalled, and also throw in the MSD 6-AL ignition not installed... The Audiovox alarm is model # AX901, We also did a power door lock conversion, the only thing not installed on it is the remote start and turbo timer features, but all wires/box will be included...

    Edit: Im located in Prosser, WA area code 99350

    The Good:
    .Fully built engine that can handle 500+ HP. Once the head work is addressed and fixed I would do it myself and sale the car for $8,500 but I dont have time to be waisting towards this project due to the baby bieng here in the next month and a half...
    .Under 200 miles on the new B18C1, since the build. "Took old B18C out"
    .Everything in the engine is brand new, I spent $4,000 just in parts + engine cost building it. Sleeves done in California by Golden Eagle"
    .I have a carfax from the day I purchased the vehicle and can email the carfax to you. "The only thing that will possibly show up is that the Gauge cluster has been swapt to the SI cluster and Im not sure how it will show up on the carfax."
    .Flawless Rota Slipstreams 0 scrapes/scratches. And lot's of tread left...
    .It has kickass rain-x windshield wipers FTW!!!

    The Bad:
    .The current head is loosing a lil compression. Needs to be addressed, either repaired or replaced.
    .Stock shocks need replacement.
    .Would recommend replacing ECU with either a P72 OBD1 or the Hondata s300. I was going to put in the s300...
    .Rear 1/4 panel dent as seen in the pictures.
    .Front right fender has dents in it...
    .5th gear synchros is out, it grinds... all other gears flawless...
    .Some paint scratches on front & Back Bumper...


    Below is a list of things I had planned to do this winter/spring, "None of the parts listed below come with the car" and havent purchased any of these items...

    My old Build Plan's to finnish this project...
