Don't expect to see dyno plots or videos anytime soon, I am acquiring all of the parts, test fitting on motor, machining block/head and putting it all back together, with sweet o-ring goodness and welded coolant passages, and a fresh oem head gasket and some ARP head studs and rod bolts.

just let me know if you spot any good used hx35's, or manifolds I might want.
I found this on the Chicago CL, Could be fun to finagle onto an e30 :twisted:
