    since the motor is ripped down, when you took the side timing cover off did you notice a set of mounting holes in the block below the cam gear?

    why are you going with a D16A1?

    ok the deal is the guy i got this from already had EVERYTHING tore apart already.came with new turbo, intercooler etc. and only reason of using the D16A1 is because this is a cheap project car(2500)and he is paying for my new gaskets and other minor stuff he didnt have at the time.so i figure 2500 for a D16A1 with only 80k on engine and 60k on the tranny w/turbo and acc. is cheap as dirt.

    you paid 2500 for a non running hatch? with a D16A1 in pieces?
    ouch

    what sort of turbo and intercooler came with it? new or used?

    the turbo and intercooler are completley new.like just moved out of the box new.and i find it a good deal being that im in autoclass in high school and we have the best auto class in the state(hot tank,valve grinders,brand new brake lathe,full line of snap-on,etc.)and i can use it for free. plus i have a well paying job.
