Shipping Idea
 
Ok, let me know if this sounds reasonable to anyone else. There are a decent amount of members here on the site and we're all pretty well spread out over the US. Would anyone be willing participate in a hand off shipping plan? Basically, if someone needs something shipped from the west coast to the east coast, or east to west, it could make its way from one member to the next. This would really only be worth it on heavy or big items (engines, transmission, etc), but could be a real cost saver. I often go as far south as LA and I'm up in Reno, NV all the time also...

Thoughts?

Indeed, I can do a bit of east (haha, all the way to jared's place on the shore) to west (There are a fair bit of us in penn) and NY to DE/MD.

:p

Im good for Pitt to Chicago. It's always nice to visit the parental units.

Since I'm currently using the vehicles my parents use, it's not a given that l'l be able to help yet. But whenever my own vehicle is road ready(The Ford Contour) I'm good for going all the way to Kansas City from St. Louis, or any other place within that radius.

Just so it's out in the open, this all came up from me wanting to buy bunger's z1, :p

There is also the consideration that shipping an engine would probably cost around $200. The money we'd all spend in gas AND the time spent driving would be much more than that.

That being said, I've never been to Wendover, but I might want to visit sometime. Is that close to Reno?

Haha, there is NOBODY out my way.

The spare, or the whole setup?

SVOboy 06-28-2006 07:05 PM

The one he's using now. The spare is evidently almost dead.

What percentage of the mpg gain would you say comes from the head as

opposed to going all z1?

If I wanted to swap to a z1 head, I would still need to swap mpfi/dizzy/ecu, correct?

labor wise i'd really like to just do the head swap, but either way i have to swap out all that stuff :(

I don't think the 8valve swap is even worth all the work, what do you think?
