I'm in Orlando and have a complete 1.8 from a 99, it has 147k miles and could probably use front and rear main seals, going to buy a leak down tester tomorrow to get the numbers on it. I'm interested in the MS for sure either way.

interested in the boost gauge. Is it pretty dead on?

And would you be willing to part your BOV?

How did you blow your motor?

Asking how someone with a turbo'd car killed their motor is like asking chocolate why it tastes good. Its 99.9999999999999999% of the time because of detonation.

Well, I was more curious into what was he doing at the time. Then again, he says he was making 15psi with that turbo.

Yeah, the gauge is fairly accurate as far as I can tell. The BOV stays with the kit for now though.

Not sure how I blew it exactly. I think it might be a combination with it overheating badly about a month and a half ago (heater hose blew off the back of the head) and the car running really rich and slightly washing the cylinder walls, but I'll only know once I dig into it.

Dibs on CAS!

EDIT: Nm...don't think it will work on mine.

Also interested in water temp gauge.

Sorry to hear you have to let it go.

Bump, busy with school, but it is finally Friday. Pulling the head this weekend to check out the damage, then starting the part out.

For you guys that called dibs, I'll be getting in contact with you soon for payment/shipping info.

I heard that I have to head to the testing lab tomorrow to pull off a double header, test for IMC and International Marketing. I'm cramming right now, have to get up at 5:30 to be at work at 6:30 and be there all day except for them letting me take off 2 hours to go take the tests.
If you need any help let me know.

Thanks man, I'm about to go to bed now, I've been cramming for Calc III and Statistics, both of which have quizzes tomorrow. I am going to be at the SAE shop all day on Saturday, but I might start working on it tomorrow night and Sunday.

Give me a call tomorrow or Sunday if you want to lend a hand. I'll probably have plenty of help, but you are more than welcome to hang out in the garage and drink a few beers.

If you think he wants something I have, send him a PM for me. It all has to go.

I already tried but I don't know how he spells his power-gay user name. Maybe you'd like to waste your life trying to figure it out but I'm far to busy being important to waste my time with this horse-****.
