Well, hate to ride your coattails minty but I have yet to figure out how to post my own new thread, so I'm using yours to introduce myself. Hope you dont mind. Name is Chris and I own a 92 DA I just recently bought for $5500, heres what its got. 1.8 non vtec, balanced and blueprinted built by C&C perfomance Weisco pistons 11:1 compression Crower billet connecting rods, I beam Crower 402 cams Crower double springs, valves and titanium ret random tech high flow cat Iceman cold air intake Borla stainless muffler 9lb flywheel Fluidyne full size rad Skunk 2 ecu mod chip\ Powerslot rotors Toikico struts Theres some other minor cosmetic stuff too, I fell for this car because my previous car was also a DA and this one looked like what i thought was a complete project. It just recently skipped time (i think) and has rust, electric shorts, and flaking paint. So this is a hard question to ask because i think i know the answer... Did I get screwed on this deal? Is there an easy way to tell if it has bent valves if it wont start? I'm about to deploy, so when i come home i intend to give it some serious tlc, until then hello and im sure you'll see me on here.
