Default right now, I really wish I purchased a 1.6 kit

Suddenly 1.8l blown motors are impossible to find for my swap. I'm really kicking myself in the *** right now for a whole 20whp. The car should have run by the second week of october.

Make an offer on my motor. 96 block, 00 head, cams have surface rust

I'm starting to lean toward porting my turbo and adding the 19t wheel instead of the engine swap

How bad is the rust, is it fixable or do they need replacing, best way to remove it without hurting the cams...everything else clean, or blown?
