I have posted before about doing an engine swap as i wanted more power but by spending little. Turns out, cant really happen.
I have now bought a B18C4 engine and will be doing near enough all of the work myself.

a bit risky perhaps but how else can you learn?

My updates wont be too regular because its going to cost a fortune!! But i prey it pays off.

Here' some pics of the car as i bought it first...

haven't yet got the parts mate, got the engine petty much stripped apart atm. gotta clean it and degrease it and that.
I have been looking for used pistons and rods but all i could find were overbored pistons and high comps :( so they will be bought brand new.. when i decide where from.. ill let you know! :)
