    well as some may know i had a nice lsvtec in my crx. fully built,all forged with stage 2 valve train. I was on my way to the tax office to register my other crx when i heard a slight knock. i knoew it was over. To compare how fast it was I lost to a k20 EG with I/H/E. I didnt have an intake and only had some crappy dc header. i just figured i 'd let it be known. This was my first actual fast custom motor. it spun a rod bearing on cyl.#3 I didnt want to fix so i found some guy to buy it off me for 1800 bucks. Pretty good deal. But none the less it was MY motor. Here are some pics only days from blowing up.

    I was gonna buy Calesta's block and build a bad ass torque monster. But unfortunately i decided to be a grown up and take car of bills,debts and wedding plans.:ph34r:

    here are some pics only days from blowin up. I have now downgraded to a jdm b16 that had been used,abused, fornicated,and sprayed on more times then anyone can imagine. It had a blown headgasket so i have to fix that. any way here are the pics. man i'm sad just typing this.

    which one? well we are actually already married. i proposed to her and we set the date. We had to get married sooner though since it would help me in the INS paperwork. Her family doesnt know we are married yet since the wedding ceremony will still continue the same.

    I should have gotten my work permit hard copy this month. I have a court date also for my green card in may. Not to mention i'm getting my job back at the Home Depot.:cool: So far besides my motor blowin up everything else seems moving forward in a positive direction.

    thanks for the concern 2000si. I forgot to tell you guys about that.

    I will be legal pretty soon!!!!!!!!:ph34r: :ph34r:

    Partly- he was really looking forward to buying it, and I do want it to go to someone that will try to really make some serious power with it.

    I dont know? I still havent got a clue. The bottom end was supposed be ''bulletproof''. the tuning was right on the bottom end was all forged,i changed my oil right at if not before 3000miles. depending on how many times i raced it. Always put 10w30 mobil 1 with the mobil 1 oil filter..........ahhhhh memories. I spanked some fast cars with it^_^

    it did cross my mind. I want torque though!!!!!!!!!

    I want over 250whp if i go boost. If i go boost it will be with one BIG turbo. Not a tiny one. If the b16 cleans up nice and no serious problems after the headgasket. I might consider it. Though i feel bad for it though since the previous owner sprayed it so many times. the cylinder head didnt turn out too bad. no oil gunk that i could see. Hopefully the bottom end will hold up long enough after the bills are payed.
