So, uh. Where are you? I don't see a location anywhere in this post or your profile, beyond the place that rebuilt it.

Sorry to hijack, but can you give any more info on the Volvo valve springs? (What they came off of?)

Guy named Greg make the motor? I swear I know him. Use to live in Temecula and worked at a machine shop there. If it is Greg's shop I'd say the motor was done well. He knew his stuff when I worked for/with him back in the day.

I would assume Greg did this motor, the whole time I was at the shop getting mine done he talked all about this car and its engine and turbo setup.

Might have to give the dude a ring just for old times sake. Worked with/for him at a few places. One of the cooler/nicer bosses I've had over the years.

This was built by Greg at Millennium Motorsports in Temecula CA.

The Volvo springs are a simple plug and play that people used to do often with the Miata head. I will have to find the part number. I actually got them from MarkP.

I dont believe I would be parting this out.

I need to sell it ASAP. I have a huge costly project that needs to be finished in 2 weeks for Long Beach.

PS- not going LS.

What year did you source the block from, does it have an oil supply line for a turbo already?

I believe it is a 94-97 block. It does have a oil and water supply line already next to the dipstick.
