So, guess who's pissed...

First I lose 50 dollars,
Then I can't get my center caps painted properly, they're all messed up at this point,
Now look at #2.



It seems the cause of no compression wasn't bad rings at all, so I let a perfectly good block get rusted up cylinder walls for no reason besides that I'm a stupid piece of ****.

Anyway, that puts the nix on my head swap next week, I guess.

A new valve is 40 from honda, so I'm just going to rip the head and the block apart for practice, what the hell else is there to do with them now?

Anyway, I'm on the hunt for a full engine now. I can do an engine swap for just the cost of the oil to put in it since I have all the junk left over I bought for this crap engine.

*shrug*

Anyone around nj got a d15b6, b8, or z1 for sale?

a whole engine is a better swap. Maybe this turned out for the best.

Compaq is correct, my one exhaust valve is cracked from something solid making it's way through the engine,

Dan, I have the equivalent of a b7 in there now, so it gets no love from me.

Jared, thanks for the help over at neh.

*sigh*

So that is the B8 head. Your current engine runs fine, so why not just get another free B8 head?
