You don't even know. Tarmacs are so strong you only need 1. He's playing it safe.

Yes, just like the car. Well, it runs on all 4 cylinders now and quite well - didn't get a chance to let it go into closed loop (had to replace the ignition module for ecmlink as it was only running on 2). My fenders still need to be rolled because Tom ditched out on me Sunday after I borrowed him tools again.

Giving up on orientating the R brakes properly and flipping them over so leading piston becomes the trailing piston and vice versa. The little Odyssey battery is annoying me with having to be charged. It is cutting out when cranking - not sure if its the battery or the starter.

There's really not too much to be done. Have to take off the intake to seal up a coolant temperature sensor and mount the ignition module and then start with the rest of the buttoning up. Still want to drive it around a little before it makes the trip to MWM.

Awesome, that definitely helps. I'll bring a box of quarter-sticks and some C4 in case neither of the above pan out.

Can't blame you. I'd be pissed if I spent that much money on an engine and had continuous problems with it even before driving the car.

Progress, haha. Putting a new longblock together for this car so get this....it can move under its own power!

That's the plan, anyway. The 16v head is at the machine shop to be cleaned, shaved, and valves leak-checked. I have a low mileage B230F long block that will get new gaskets and I will be renting the Yoshifab tool here shortly to cut valve reliefs.
