Similar to me. My motor stalled at a busy intersection. Thankfully a police officer pulled up and helped push my car into the gas station parking lot. I had hot start issues too. The motor would need to cool down before starting. I had low compression in the rear rotor and coolant leak.

well i do have a fully built turbo motor in my MX 1.8BP bored over to a 2.0L with monster cams the works. good for about 450 whp reliably wouldent be hard to convert it to a RWD platform....

but honestly I am not sure. stick with the MSP or go with something different, I know one thing is the MSP is expensive as hell to even rebuild. not even worth my time for 1500-1800 dollars to do it myself. Pineapple is the best place i have found thus far for pricing warranty reliability, have to decide if i want to stay N/A or go forced ind. then its turbo vs supercharger. i have a lot of ideas floating around its just money to do it.

Yah, the 20b is what I have been looking into, it is the hizzle. its either a stock 20b or a bad *** rebuild with a SC. hmm both will cost me about the same.

the biggest part is the wiring for the 20b, but i have been told there are ways to not have to go with a stand alone...

Rebuild w/SC is going to be a lot less than a 20b.

Not the rebuild I have planned....*evil laugh*

If i do it im going to spend the money and do it rite and get the most out of it N/A I can.. I will probably just throw on a M62 cheep and available and should get me just what I want out of it. We will have to see in the coming months

In Gig Harbor, I spotted a very very rare 2006 Shinka Copper Red. ^_^ I love that color, almost bought one brand new in 06, instead I got a evo..... biggest mistake ever!

Saw a Black Cherry one in Lincoln Square today. I thought it was regular black until I saw the light reflecting off it.
