    Hey guys. I have a GSR bough from a salvage yard because he had a stolen motor in it. I get to keep everything, but I must drill the block so it is not useable, by order of the city police. My question is, can I use a B18C block (P73 pistons) with the GSR head? Im fairly sure the blocks are the same, I know the pistons are higher compression. Can someone shed some light on this for me.
    Thanks

    you don't need to keep them on you... you hvae 24 hours to produce yoru license... im sure you at least have that to produce paper work.
    plus, if your car get sstolen with the papers in it- your now stolen motor has legit papers with it.

    i dont evenhave any papers for mine... all i have is my paypal receipt. lol

    thats why I said make photocopies, if the car gets stolen and they have the paperwork with it they still won't have the originals or the title.

    I'd rather be able to produce the paperwork for the cop right then and there instead of having to drive back down to the damned police station the next day.
