  1. Finally dropped off the WRX block at the machine shop along with the heads and it isn't going to cost me a fortune to get everything done. Plus I shouldn't need new pistons, so that is also a good sign.
  2. I still see tread on the rear tires so that is a good sign.
  3. Be careful, you might have to owe your friend a few sets of tires.
  4. In the process of refinancing a bunch of student loans and decreasing my monthly payment by ~$400. God I can't wait to have fuck around money.
  5. Hell, I would have just rewired it without the switch, kudos for actually doing it right.
  6. My brother and I have beaten Halo 1-3 via XBL with absolutely no issues. I think we only got dropped once out of the 30 or so hours that we were playing, I guess we just got super lucky since it looks like most people have issues with this.
  7. cost per hour * estimated number of hours to complete = price Anything way below that then walk away imo.
  8. Will be going to Texas next week for work.
  9. I'll be honest, I actually use MS paint at work every now and then. I also have gimp but in most cases that is way overkill for what I am trying to achieve. It will be a sad day.
  10. As far as I know, no. From what the guy says it has low compression but it sounds like he wasn't the one that did the test since he couldn't tell me what the numbers were. Hopefully the previous owner was stupid and did the test wrong or had bad heads/timing rather than bad rings. Either way, for 300$ I get a turbo block, rods/pistons, and a crank that isn't totally fucked. I was planning on rebuilding the NA block before I realized how bad it was, I don't have a problem with rebuilding this one. Although I'll probably throw it in the car first and test the compression myself before pulling it apart and spending more money. If anyone else has any interest in cars I would say that is a good idea lol.
  11. Going to be picking up an EJ255 (2006-2014 WRX motor) for 300$ 4 hours away in NJ tomorrow.
  12. Pulled apart the engine and I spun two rod bearings. Those two rods are completely fucked and the crank is probably not salvageable either. So either I am buying a crank and two NA rods OR a crank and 4 STI rods/pistons.
  13. Yup, put about 50-100 miles on it.
  14. This isn't a great week for cars, my subie's motor just started knocking super bad and has no oil pressure. RIP EJ25.
