Had posted my cheap blue 92 purchase a few months back and got a TD04 Greddy kit and as I was getting ready to cut out rust as a chance popped up for me to buy a couple of NA8's for a great price.
Black car sat for 3 years , bad water pump only (according to owner) and belt replacement coming soon , driver side widow is not rolling down , has some muffler and Racing Beat rear bumper + functional fashion bar + rims etc
Black one may end up being my daily as I wanted a 1.8 before all (especially if AC will work as owner said) unless my 92 turbo ends up being tons more fun and easy AC fix .
White car is bad body wise and will be a parts car but has a bit more aftermarket stuff including ARC chamber and please ID headers headers?
Cusco coilovers (I guess they are shot)
Also 4 point roll cage and that wide body kit which will go to waste most likely
Engine is a bit high mileage but owner says there is a light weight flywheel there also and a full exhaust system (HKS maybe) Juran braces and more...
Most likely I will part out the white car as its badly corroded , will end up with lots of parts including engine and tranny etc.
Now exactly at the same time at a yard near by appears an NB 98 Japanese BP4W engine very low mile with crisp 5 speed and ECU for like $300
Has also sat around for ages but looks good overall , ECU was rained on (but I cant say it was really bad) ... I am able to pick it all up with tranny and maybe looms included.
I feel like its just too much at once plus storage is not very easy as I don't own my own garage ... Is the BP4W worth buying ? what else should I grab if I do buy it ? NB ECU ? or no need ?
Would you buy this extra NB engine if you already ended up with three NA cars at the same time and had limited storage? The yard wont let me buy just the head either
Long post ... zzzzzz
I hope some of the more experienced guys here can help me make a wise decision.
The NB engine has sat for a long time so its very low mile...
