Yea that block was dirty as hell. I saw the picture of the block on facebook. You should throw some ZC pistons in it.

Yes, they go right in no problem. The A6 I took out of my hatch has ZC pistons, I put them in it a few years ago.

A6 block + ZC pistons + Z6 head = 12.5:1 compressi on = So much fun.

Wait, so this was a non-running car?

I think I have a set of those hubcaps you can have for free.

Let me know if you have some.

Yeah the guy showed me it cranked, but when it shot the dipstick out I said turn it off.

I pretty much planned on swapping sohc into anyway.



big crunch came due to neighbors accord is shitting oil over the place so my zc sitting on the hoist needed to go in.

OK things have changed at my house.

Tired of looking at 3 non-running EF's.

Especiall y when paying insurance on one of them.

As of last night, the motor and tranny are held in by the bolts and all things connected to it are gone.

Driveshaf ts are still there.  Knuckles removed etc.

I'm going to take this whole swap and put it in my crx.

Then I'm going to take the complete drive line out the white hatch and put it in the red one.

This totally goes against what I said in the beginning but life changes and you adapt.

Well I guess it is time for an update.

I had a mad half hour or two.

Thought about swapping b into this one. 

decided to get the crx running.

Got the crx running just in time to move it to the back of my property due to we were selling the house.

My wife and I decided to sell the house and get a bigger house with big building outback.

So we found the perfect house and moved.

No building as of yet.  Once house sells then building the shop.

So here is what she looks like so far.

Put her on stands and took the knuckles off to be rebuilt.





Then yanked motor I had sitting in it with two bolts.

I installed this one.  This was in Wiggles multi color'd hatch.



I've got an old school DC sport header that i will be using and I'm going to place an order for a new exhaust system for it soon.

Yes I'm still playing with the EF's.

Now harder but don't post much due to always trying to do work in between Dad duties.

Still have the wagon, still have the crx, still have the other white 89 si.

well had a mad half hour and bought a convertib le last summer so all funds went dry.

Sold the convertib le two weeks ago.

Just ordered HKS twin tip exhaust and various other pieces.

I started to motivate myself lately.  Had to get mum & dad's jeep done and get that back over to mum then I can work on this one.
