I just got the master switch for 400 from ARSIR (sp).

Having some major issues with my car these days.

Car started to break up on acceleration. I checked the coil packs and changed the plugs. The issue went away except for a very rough idle.

Drove around today and suddenly bthe car felt like it was running on only 3 cylinders and it was smoking when I accelerated.

Headache. Should have stuck with evos

Will contact you tomorrow. I have a strong suspicion that its a faulty coil pack. Will also clean the Solenoids and PCV.

The AVCS solenoids.

There is an issue on Cylinder 4. No compression at all. I suspect a burnt valve. Going to take out the engine tomorrow and get started on the rip.

How much you're willing to let it go for? Would like a spare to play with.

Im definitely going to rebuild. Should be an easy task if it's just a valve change.

Willing to sell separately also... Engine Heads for $1800 and Block for $1900. Will throw in a pair of coil packs with the heads and I'll keep two spares for myself.

Offers a better opportunity to the potential buyer of the block make a proper assessment.

Took an entire day to figure out but I got the engine out. Tomorrow will pull it apart and see where the issue lies.

So looks like the rings broke and damaged the block. Engine will have to be completely stripped and rebuilt. But I don't have the time for that right now. Anyone knows where I can find a FU EJ20?

Dragon Imports -12k complete
Arsir, Bamboo - 9500
D One stop has a few - 12k + complete

Of course if you call and go in person you might be able to negotiate a better price.

damn sorry to hear, but these legacy engine run way too much compression for our gas. If i ever damage my engine im goin to go 8:1 CR like the sti. Our 'premium' can only do so much with 9.5:1

leaning to rebuilding mine also instead of selling. Would be a good learning experience will take my time to get it spot on. Will need an engine stand. How much do they sell for?

I built an Evo engine once. Much easier that most people make it out to be. Especially if you have the tools.

I made my own engine mount. Gave it away so I will buy one soon.
