decided to update this here as well. Only took me a year to pull the oil pan. lol. AMAZED this thing ran like it did not to mention I didn't lose any oil. Seriously, it was still full. Never smoked.

good piston after polishing it up

missing just a little bit of it


good to know this came from a 2.0 piston. lol

under the oil pan

i made a forsale thread and noted that if someone wanted to do a full swap to pm you about the rest of the parts. itd be cool if we could sell it all at once. we could both use the money. id make out better if i had ya ship the rest and sold it as a full kit but i dont wanna deal with the hassle and im sure you dont mind a little extra money
