    If you were to buy it I would turn the boost down or sleeve the block. Pushing 300hp+ on a b20 block is asking for a disaster. Or at least that's my opinion.

    :werd: I'm with both of these guys. The B20 sleeves are really weak, so turning the boost down will at least help it's longetivity, until you perhaps decide to sleeve the block. If you don't, it will keep going strong, as long as you don't boost the hell out of it. Best of luck on your possible buy. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the advice, he says that he's running 9lbs boost on it and that its only got about 5K on this motor (since rebuild I assume). Also I noticed in the pic that the battery is in the passenger seat which... I don't really like but... how hard is it to put it BACK in the engine bay or should I leave it? He also says that its never been on a drag strip, track and never NOSed (he said it doesn't need it, which I believe). Anyway any more advice is greatly appreciated!

    I was wrong about the battery, it's in the back.

    Ah, okay. Did he do anything under the hood that required the battery to be relocated? Some people do it to free up room under the hood.

    Worth it? Also what is the thing in the front passenger seat? AND what rims are those? btw the heater doesn't work and the stereo doesn't work due to the wiring 'tuck' job. I kind of need a heater? If it's a daily driver I at LEAST need a defroster?

    Man, that's gorgeous. Have you test driven it yet? The rims, I have no clue, but they are really nice. As far as your heater and stereo, perhaps it is just a short somewhere? Does it have the thermostat installed?

    Remember this, no matter what anyone says if YOU like it and YOU can afford it, as well as it is what YOU want and will make YOU happy, then go for it. :D Personally, I would...but I require air conditioning. haha

    6500 sounds ok , but be warry most thing that sound to good to be true are too good to be true , why if you can do a tuck job on the wires no heat or radio , something seems fishy to me
    on the plus side you could easily spend 6500 on the parts if all parts listed are on the car

    for me daily driver not a chance ,

    Like they all said, thats a really really nice car, and pretty much looks mint. Also if you want it, the def. do it. But my personal opinion is i would never buy anyone els's work. I sadly did that. I had a 95 coupe with a stock non vtec motor, i spent about $4,000 on a white with blue pearl paint job, Tein suspension, apexi exhaust and a few other things, and i sold it for a 97 hatch with a b16, and about 5 months after i baught it, i started burning 4 quarts of oil ever 1,500 miles, THATS BAD. so pretty much, you just never really know unless you pull it apart. but if you have $6,000 to spend you can find a pretty nice shell and buy a new motor and build your own fun project and learn on the way, but thats just me, good luck to you, and have fun!
