97 Ek Hatch / Built Bottom B18c / New Price $6500
*Should c some bump's for a steal?
To make a long story short, Ive got a kid on the way and have to let loose of this partially completed project. I paid $6,500 for it in March of 06 and have put an additional $5,000 back into it already. My loss is definately your gain. It recently recieved its second b18c swap this time with a heavily built bottom end. "The asking price is $6,500 firm, no trades" Previous asking price was $7800 firm until my shop did a leak down after breaking in the rebuilt engine and the stock head must be replaced. It's loosing compression in the 4th cylinder, and is leaking oil. Selling the car at this price puts me out $5,000+ dollars but it must go. Reason for the new asking price is I need this car gone yesterday... $400-$1,000 into a new head and youve got yourself a steal considering the $ invested into the bottom end of this car among many other mods...
