    Ok now that I have my money back, I'm going to buy this 99 Ls with a GSR tranny with ITR flywheel and ITR LSD, has 4x,xxxx miles not really sure. Comes with DC header, cams, everything I need to just drop this thing into my hatch and get it started.

    My only question is for anyone who has bought something off of the internet like this. I found the ad on Hondaclassifieds.com and the guy called me back. He lives in VA and I am in NJ. What information should I get from this guy to make sure he doesn't rip me off. I all ready have him faxing me the papers and a warranty, he said he'll warranty it for 45 days and long and I don't change anything, ya know basic stuff. What else should I ask from him? :sleep: I'm sleeping on this one, someone help me out.

    Hell ya. I see a lot of people risk thousands of dollars on internet motors, and even have seen a couple times that reputible place have "skimped" on quality. I would drive out there, make it a weekend. Its not like he's in Cali.

    yeah man, it's definitely worth the cost of gas- the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you're getting before you send all that money would certainly make me feel a lot better-

    depends on where in NJ and where in VA. took me like 4 hours from baltimore to NJ to get my car, but i had to drive all the way to Rockaway, NJ. thats almost to NY. i think if he is near deleware and the guy in VA is near the boarder of MD then he can make it in 3 hours

    yea why would I make up something like that? I live in central new jersey. Around New Brunswick, and the guy lives in northern VA. Also mapquest is based on going the speed limit and whoever does the speed limit, ha just kiddin.

    I just need to rent a pick up so I can pick it up. Probably gonna have someone drive me down there and I'll rent something down there keep my costs down.

    i live like 45 mins from rockaway, dude when I drove from milford to Florida it took us a good 6 hours to get to Va about 4-5 when I went by myself without stopping (made it to florida in 18 hours) , When I drove from NYC to Virginia beach it took like 8 hours.

    Fuck it though, its worth the ride..bring the girl, bring a friend or 2 and just have a nice little weekend down in Va.

    You gotta remember too its freezing everywhere in the US right now. No place to go to have a nice weekend cept maybe San Diego haha

    My main concern isn't really the length of the ride, I can deal with the time its just finding something to haul this motor home in. I don't own a pickup truck
