The OP, sounds like a scammer.
Wants to put a 94/97 motor in a customer car and tell them it's a 99/00?
That's what I'm getting out of this story...
And then says "haha" when describing engine damage? That's not funny, so obviously he don't give a **** about the cars owner and is only here to get information on how to benefit his shop in screwing people out of their money. I know it's a stretch and I may be dead wrong, but read the thread...wtf?

Ryan is cool people. No scammer in the slightest. Both he and i about 6 years ago got raped in the buthole by a scammer shop when we had our rx7's so trust me when I say both of us HATE scammers and scamming to the maximum degree and would NEVER do screw anyone over.

Okay well then why exactly does it matter if it looks like a 94-97 engine is in the car? You have to be trying to fool someone, either whoever you sell it to or possibly some race officials...

reading the beginning of the thread, esp ^this^ part, made me have the same exact opinion that Zabac had...possibly our menstration cycles have synched? Perhaps poor wording, but just saying..

Anyway, seeing one of "us" back him is another story.

Can't wait to go home and see carnage pics as I'm blocked at work FTMFL
