    Hey everyone...
    Missed you guys :wub: , sorry I havent posted in a while! Havent had time to do anything other than lurk around while working...

    I finally purchased Bob's (xaero) '00 ex last friday.... Long story short... lets just say that it needs a new motor. I believe that I may just go with the original d16y8
    if not I will be looking for a LS b18.

    Please let me know if you guys have anything up for sale or know of anything at a "REASONABLE" price :shiny:

    Also, I also have unused, still in the box, hasport mounts for a 96-00 H series swap if anyone is interested!

    Hit me up!

    If you want to boost on a budget, you can just get another Y8 and go for 250whp on the stock internals. It's pretty common now.

    well, the search is still on... not sure what I want I am still in the pricing stage. I havent pulled the head off yet to see if it is still salvageable. I have so many possibilities right now its driving me insane. I am debating on whether or not to buy a b16 block Monday (feel free to insert an opinion) its a clean block ready for building and my buddys asking 350 for it. This is where the SI replica thought came across... then driving last night I was deep in thought and I was thinking hmmm maybe a b20??? not sure, I also priced a 98 b18 for 1600...
    FEEDBACK PEOPLE COME ON!!!

    Oh and if you guys know anyone in need of some Hasport H series mounts for a 96-00 SEND THEM MY WAY!

    I WAS going to build and boost the d series until i threw a rod (through the block) but it is still in the cards if, I havent run across any d16y8s yet but who knows. I am going to figure out what machine shop it was taken to, go up there and have a talk with whomever "REBUILT" the motor, because it shouldnt have been even close to anything going wrong because Bob only had the car back for no more than 4 weeks before he passed away, thus leaving the car to sit for a little over 4 months. I checked and changed the oil before I even took it out. Not sure, how it went but I was on a ramp merging and I was in 4th (mind you, just cruising at like 3200rpm) and I go to shift into 5th as I merge onto the other hwy, the motor bogs down and I shut it down nhra style and I coast over to the shoulder just in time for smoke to bellow out. So I get out and see if theres oil of course theres a butt load all over the road ( I pray the whole way on the tow of shame back that it was just a head gasket) I get home and jack up the car where I can squeeze underneath to get a look, my heart freakin sinks into my stomach when I see the huge exit wound in the block =( What the heck made it chunk a rod like that?

    There's not really much you can do to tell unless you rip it all apart. I'd look for some funny wear patterns on the bearings- that's my first hunch.

    Heck yea that would be sweet! I met friends that came up to the dealership where I work, they were from Lubbock and they want to come up here and check out the scene sometime soon. Id totally be down too I have Fridays and Sundays off. That H22a4 he had is still sitting on his carport, it doesnt have a tranny for it... well... it does in a sense... but its an auto of course. Not really interested in the H swap but at this point Im still up in the air about what to go with. I kind of figured that I would more than likely go for the D series unless I can get a sweet deal on something else cause that would just put me a little bit closer on a NICE setup. Oh, and thanks for the refrences!!! =)

    I'll actually be in the DFW area on 8/18 on business, but I won't be able to stick around for very long. I will definitely be dropping by Intercrew up in Garland before I head back to Lufkin.

    Ive heard of that place but never been there. Ive got a buddy that just opened a shop in Garland Yea his car is stupid fast... last time I saw him run he was pushing 57lbs of boost and my other buddy in Haslet was pushing 58lbs. Im not sure what setup he has now but I know my friend from Haslets supposed to break a 9.8 in the 1/4 next time he busts out his super sexy dc2!

    Kenny Tran hes alright... doesnt work on his own cars anymore but still props to his team. I saw him run at the Import Showdown out at Ennis. I think that I have his signature from the NOPI that he voluntarily signed while I was checking out his setup. Just curious did any of you TX people make it down to HEATWAVE in Austin this past weekend?

    Nope, didn't go to HeatWave.

    Intercrew is a great shop! More innovative than Jotech, that's for sure. I wouldn't equate Kenny Tran's car's performance with stuff coming out of the shop, but that's just my personal opinion. I've met Kenny a few times, and he's a very cool guy. Good friends with Phillip, Intercrew's owner.
