Testing waters on my 1.9L longblock..
Im considering selling my built motor and going another route.
Fully built by Robello Racing:
Its a protege bottom end
323 gtx forged rods w/ arp hardware
ARP head studs
JE pistons 9:1
95 miata head, fully worked over by Robello (3 angle port job ect)
99 springs/retainers/SS exhaust valves (i think oversized but ill have to check to be sure)
Protege open valve cover
History of the motor:
Brian, Robellos owners son who works @ robello. Built the motor for his track toy. Built it, tuned it on their engine dyno and put it in his car. Put 300 miles on it before he got into boost. Then when he did, he blew his tranny and yanked it out. I bought it with aprox 350 miles on the motor. I put 2k street miles on it without boost. Then put the turbo setup in and got it tuned and have about 3k additional mile on it. So lets call it 6k miles to be on the safe side. This motor is still in great condition, i will do a leakdown/compression test before pulling it for anyone who wants to know the #s it has.
I paid 2000 bucks for it and will let it go for 1800.
