    $2999 for a BUILT dart block? Bullshit. Smells like a scam to me. Dart blocks are about that much BARE.


    do we have a 'that's a fuckin' scam' emoticon?

    Bare Dart blocks are right at $2200. That, and they only come in 1.8L and 2.0L, not 1.6L and 2.2L.



    JE pistons are around $130 apiece, Eagle rods are about $300, and an Eagle crank is $700...and that's finding them CHEAP...

    So this guy is selling a $3700 block for $2999?

    Looks good to me.

    I don't care what the blocks go for. $3k sounds reasonable for a built short block, no matter what engine you are talking about. Most companies WAAAAYYY overcharge.

    If you read through Dart's own literature, they say that the block can be ordered with the "tall deck" for 95mm stroke applications. I would buy the Dart if I wanted to drop the cash to build a 95x86 B block with a 1.75:1 rod/stroke ratio. It's perfect.

    yup. 2.2 can be done.

    but you'll need a new hood as well :)

    if you want to buy it, i'll help you build it. we could easily get 250-260whp all motor out of that thing.

    Make a custom hood with a mild bulge that goes all the way across so nobody notices unless they're really looking for it.

    250-260whp on something like that should be cake.

    IB offers their kickass 1.7liter B16 turbo block for 2995. Great deal, I think. Hmmm... maybe I should buy another Civic. Maybe an EG fodo.

    well, you still need a head- stock from 500 to built at 2k
    a tranny w/ lsd 1400

    and then all the little shit to make it work...
    intake manifold, distributor, injectors, some fuel management, injectors, exhaust, alt, axles, etc etc etc.

    its tough when you don't have a full swap to start with in the first place. it will nickle and dmine you to death trying to find every last bolt.
