hey my fellow 3geers i bought a b20 engine from a member here in nov 2008. my plans were to daily drive it with bolt ons till i found out it had a spun bearing.i wanted to keep it so bad i decisioned to build it for NA/turbo down the road. here i am feb 2011 with no engine. the first guy did not build it(friend i had worked on my OBD1 swap) 4 months. The 2nd time i took it to a shop but it took them 4 months to just take it apart and bore it. the 3rd shop(redzone in fremont) took it as a project and took 5 MONTHS! just to port the head and when i went to take my parts back the skunk2 TB was missing...he owes me my deposit back and my TB. i will take care of him later... the 3rd shop said its not worth it for them to build it because alot of people have put their hands in it and are not willing to take the responsibility if something happens to the engine they wont guarantee it. I am faced with building an engine and not knowing if it will last 3 mins or 3 months.
I have lost my DL due to a medical condition so i cant drive for several months(hope to get it back by the summer time as soon as my dr clears it)
i have some parts i would like to sell from the engine so yeah im going to work now so after work i will be able to set up a list with prices
