    might want to rethink the RMF header unless you dont mind waiting a long time. Randy (RMF) is helping build a truck for jesse james (yes the monster garage guy). and undoubtedly has lots of other orders to fill. some people on h-t seem to have some trouble getting in touch with him to place an order since he moved from IPH to cali and on his own.

    Dave @SMSP on the other hand could help you out im sure. hes a great guy too. his headers are a different design but have just as good ground clearance, maybe a little better, and the power seems to be about the same too.

    Stock LS for now. As far as step by step pictures, dont have any. Shit went so fast... and besides the ex and i broke up the camera was hers. I did the assembly all alone with no help except for a local who helped me spec the bearings.

    That's beyond me bro. 1 week the car was perfect. Then it was broken into and I took it to get an alarm installed. a week later you see what is before us... a little fishy... but i dont like to point fingers. the b20b was not boosted for more than 2 weeks, that turbo went bad and started smoking really bad. pulled it off and did a leak down and compression test results were satisfactory so i just kept running the B20B NA... then this.

    It was either heavy detonation or who knows. The mains were fried, it appears water was introduced into the oil and started to fuck up the bearings. thankfully the car died in my garage instead of on the way home or work or something. pulled it into my garage, started to tuck the injector wiring, got it all finished and tried to start it.. no luck... turns out a chunk of the cylidner sleeve was laying on top of the piston, keeping the engine from turning over. removed the head and BAM there you have the b20's demise!!!!
