Default Built 1.8 99 motor

any one interested in a 1.8L motor??
- Block and heads decked

-Head has been ported and polished with a 3 angle valve job

-Block and heads were hot tanked and cleaned, vacuum checked the heads, and magnafluxed the block

-Block has stock bore; just honed, and the crank was micropolished and has acl race bearings

- Cp forged pistons (stock diameter) 9.0:1 compression ratio. With forged Eagle H-beam rods.

-Home made coolant re-route using a protoge water neck and. blocked off the front water neck.

-The motor was fully assembled by a local engine machine shop. It has a new timing belt, new water pump and new alternator and belts. The starter is not new. Does not have A/C pump. It will need injectors and a mass air flow sensor other than that, it is a complete motor. Spark plugs and wires are also new;

2400$ obo.. barely any miles on this motor since the rebuild due to not completing turbo setup.

Would you be willing to sell without the accessories? All I need is the longblock, and perhaps the intake manifold.

Thanks

Pschmidt yes i could part it out, mrvwcastner, pics to follow, the miles are in town and from ams/a-spec trying to put a street tune on the ecu, less than 500 miles were put on this motor. They had problems getting my adaptronic to hook up right with the lc1 wideband and wanted to do a cell to cell tune..... too expensive for me so i parted everything out.

I would be interested in the intake manifold if you are willing to part it out. Thanks.

I apologize for the extremely delayed response due to finals and work, it has been crazy lately. As far as the accusations go. It was an unfortunate mishap with the post office. I had no intentions of stiffing preluding out of a oil catch can. The post office lost the package during transit. I gave him a legitimate tracking number. Unfortunately the very few times i did not insure the package, it got lost.

Paypal me back what I paid for it and we'll call it even. Until that happens or I get what I paid for then I'll call myself "siffed". Issue was never resolved.

That is not Preludings problem. That is your problem. It is not the responsibility of the recipient to insure a package, it is yours. Therefore it is your responsibility to take the loss in the event there is a problem. Preluding delivered on his end, and you did not deliver on yours.

It is cut and dry, unless you deliver the goods, you need to give him back the money. Not doing so makes you a crook.

Antonio/Jake... you seem like a good guy from all your responses.
I hope this gets resolved.

There was great interest on my part in your motor, but I was disinclined
to inquire further based on preluding's feedback and your casual
responses.

Your good name has been lost in a good community. They say karma
is a *****.
