The plans I have for it is keep it N/A. Later on I will be buying a different engine for a swap. I do want to add some better internal for this motor so it can withstand a tad bit more abuse. The 1.6 DOHC is a great motor for autocross too, specially for high RPM tolerance. So I figure I keep it and buy a swap later and then turbo it. Dont want to go crazy on the internal but get some good respectable parts for it.

would this be the exact same Si Front lip just by an after market company????

States its a Type R Front lip Style bumper that just means its the Type R for Japan?

It means that its the Type-R style, not necessarily the real deal. It could be made by anyone and from anywhere. But still nice though, and the seller has 98 percent positive feed back, thats a real good thing.

nice man. the tech side of the house. I worked at second maint Bn. on Camp lejeunne, N.C. running the diesel fuel pump cal. shop. and the dyno shop for the M1A1 Abrahms tanks. Just a pint size twin turbine power pack. Good stuff with the Swap then turbo. so much esier with the motor out of the car. Are you gonna keep a Stock body look or are you gonna mod it at all?

I do need some advice on what would be a good way to go for this motor. The cylinder walls dont even looked messed up and are butter smooth......and figure Im going to get a different motor later on, would it be worth just to buy a new set of Pistons same size instead of boring it out to save the block from being stripped thinner on cylinder wall wise? From what I can see..the engine just had a major malfunction, but cylinder one's piston was loose...so I might have a rod issue.

pistons look decent...looks like someone already had the head off and used RTV on the headgasket. if the piston was loose it could be that the cylinder is out of shape....if you are putting new pistons in i suggest getting it honed and checked for roundness

Keep in mind, when your taking the engine head off, there is still oil and coolant within the block/head, and once you separate the head from teh block, coolant and oil can drip onto the top of the pistons, etc.

And the pistons do look pretty good. Much better than mine when I first took mine apart for sure.

Well I got the block looked at and there double checking there work, but they warned me that they think they found a crack on the BOTTOM of the block BUT its on the inside outside of the cylinder wall.

my bad with the typing I was a bit liquored but they found a definite crack on the cycliner wall thats big enough to catch your big toes NAIL! so Im pretty sure that means DEAD block.
