kevin. it costed about 1/3 the price to build this b16a. i got good deals, and i sold the gsr block to cover cost.

honestly, your opinion means ---- to me.
its THE LOW COST of all of this, thats the reason for everything i have here.

if i had to pay full price for any of it, i wouldnt even be doing another build. this build is mainly just to showcase all of my own work. the motor will be assembled by myself, as well as all the rest of the fab work, maniold intake manifold, traction bars, ect.

so far into this whole proposition, motor and turbo kit, including the longblock, i think im at about 1400.

all i need is a set of piston rings. and i have everything to get this motor together and turbo it.

THATS THE WHOLE POINT to make a run at 400whp for so damn cheap. most people couldnt even get a turbo kit together that cheap. with good components and a good snail.

Did you fill and drill out the block yourself with that aluminum block filler?
