        Many people get distracted by other interest. I know a few people they get into to many things without finishing one even close to "complete." Or the one I really hate to see the old completing the build so they can actually sell it when you know that was never an attention of theirs. Time and money can get to people. I'm ride or die for most of my things.

        You running std bore in your block? Have you heard of ppl going 94 mm pistons with stock block? I'm looking to go 93mm with aims for 7500 rpm,

        Im .020 over on the 22r block. I think for the later blocks you can run those but something like a 20r you might start running into casting flaws at 94mm.

        They probably will the thing will be if they have any stock on hand. I'm guessing they don't have much of a retail section like most shops.

        My point was the money pit our projects become. Some of us have 100s of labor hours despite the credit debt we rack up just to fuel our passion. Lol. And we're not talking about modified anything, just restoring can get out of hand quick!

        Forsure. I got over 10k in parts in my truck and probably another 1k in parts not used anymore. If I wanted to sell it and not sit on it I would need to list it well under 5k. I've seen a celica with a fully built 22r hybrid sit on the marketplace forever. When you go heavy modified it dosnt fit everyone's taste. Hurts the value. Better off reverting back to stock as much as you can and sell parts separately.
