So if I read the history correctly, you have a forged internals L61 + Precision 5431 that will be going in one day . . . nice!

That carpet reminds me of a screen saver from windows 98. lol.


This car needs to do more getting done and less not getting done. I need a thread to look forward to when I come here now.

That rug does look like an old screen saver....never realized that until now haha.

How about I post here and text you when mods are going down since i have your cell number? Also do you have any ln2 valve train parts you want to part with? There is a local turbo ln2 s ten I'm going to be working on when the weather gets better. Thought yiu might want to sell some stuff.

Let me look through the garage. I might have some things. I still have all my old turbo stuff from my first setup and possibly some company 918 springs. Also a stock untouched head (bare).


Other than that though I'd need to look.

Or actually you could just buy the whole car

I think it just needs a cam bearing or two. Its the only thing i didnt take out of the block and it still makes noises and misses and doesnt pull normal vac at idle.

All i want is the wideband out of it I think.

I have a non car related question.I see the mega size compressor and what are the specs.Also is that a 120v or 240v deal.I have a 5hp 30gal that does ok,but for sand blasting it cylcles too much, and I am considering a stand up unit like yours.If you would care to share the price of said unit as I have been looking,but not too serious to jump on the buy too soon.Congrats on the house as I can understand the updating.The very short we added 900 sq ft to our existing house and 700 sq ft is the garage and fully insulated.

Not a problem Ron. The compressor is an 80gallon 2 stage 5hp 240v unit from tractor supply in carpentersville. Normally it is 1099.99 but on black friday it was 150 off and they took a 20%off one item coupon from harbor freight saving me a total of 340 off the normal price. Out the door i paid 828.xx it flows 15.6cfm at 90psi and 15.8@40psi.

sound like a nice little upgrade at your house. I already want a larger garage lol. But need to live with what i can afford. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Thanks and that clearly would meet my needs and your price is a heck of deal! I have looked at home depot on some decent choices probably in the same normal price range just a hd brand or alternate (idk recall).I just have had too much in the last 3 wks going on to even bother really looking to consider what I want.Plus I am going to update my 1/2 impact that just does not have the power I need to bust loose say like frozen A arm bolts rusted into another orbit.I did the struts and stabilizer links had to bust out a cutting wheel to cut off the nuts as the internals just spun.Work done was on my nephews 02 civic.More reason to buy a bigger compressor as yours would clearly fit my need.Thanks again for the info.R

Depending what your budget is Ron There is a 60 gallon 2 stage harbor freight that has great reviews. The parts are made un the EU. And assembled state side.


Bad news....went into work 4 hours early last night and came out this morning to find someone swipped my drivers side fender bumper. Has to be a second shift guy because nobody on 3rd has a white car. I doubt anything will happen but after my passenger side got dented this makes me want to swap to the 00-02 LS front now.
