    Lowballers Dream:
    *Should c some bump's for a steal?

    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 $6,500 firm, no trades" Previous asking price was $7800 firm until my shop did a leak down after breaking in the rebuilt engine and the stock head must be replaced. It's loosing compression in the 4th cylinder, and is leaking oil. Selling the car at this price puts me out $5,000+ dollars but it must go. Reason for the new asking price is I need this car gone yesterday... $400-$1,000 into a new head and youve got yourself a steal considering the $ invested into the bottom end of this car among many other mods...

    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...
    .Under 500 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 rain-x windshield wipers FTW!!!

    The Bad:
    .The current head is loosing compression in the 4th. Needs to be replaced with a new head...
    .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... "'The car will also come with a P72 OBD2 ECU, and the stock engine ECU, and other misc. parts"
    .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...
    ♦Hondata s300
    ♦Turbo Kit By Linder Power Systems
    ♦Wideband 02
    ♦Paint & Body Work
    ♦Fully Adjustable Coilovers, shocks
    ♦F&R Sway Bars, Strut Bar
    ♦Replace GSR Tranny w/ Type R LSD Tranny


    ▫I have a lot of images of the car so if you want a certain side, interior or anything let me know... Need this car gone! I can meet in Ellensburg for you Seattle folk...
