      What are good prices for machine work in 2024?! Resurfacing block and head, bore hone, cap hone/polish, valve seats, valve train setup?

        Isn't one of they things to make a swap legal in California just putting in a newer motor that meet emissions standards for the time?

        Na they added things like, motor has to be of same amount of cyl., Has to be newer and I believe same automaker.. plus all emissions related to such motor. Then a state reff needs to be ok with it before it gets smogged. I have the reference manual just dnt remember exactly atm

      It's sucks going into my lair, and seeing half my tools gone. And most of my new parts gone... Moving my projects to safer grounds.

        Oh man sorry to hear of this. Hate what the government is doing to people in blue states. Many places security isn't really a thing because the consequences of being a thief is so high. And you only keep the honest out.

      To succeed you have to keep your goals in front of you! No matter how small they may be.

      Looking for a sunroof at the junkyard to adapt, only thing in question is will our roofs take the added weight/downforce ???

        I wouldn't do it. You'll have to worry about drains and keeping them clean. Otherwise it's just going to be a water trap. You don't really want to add weight up top anyways. Funny thing is a lot of enthusiast luxury cars tend to be more desirable/valuable being a slick top.

        True. To me it would be awesome to match my MR2. But don't want rust issues either. Plus, I think it's only a skin top anyways, no reinforcement cross beams just the roof.. so maybe a tinted glass top?!

        It would be ideal to have a shade. Otherwise chrome tint will be one of the better options to keep the heat out.
