2.34L build
 
So I have some parts lying around the garage and the wife wants me to "clean it up." So I am considering doing another 2.34L build, just the shortblock for now, and will use this thread as a means of showing the build progress.
I happen to have a used, but in great condition 2.0L crank, 05STi block and a set of STi rods. Other than a bore and hone the block is in great shape and the rods were reconditioned units I got in a trade. So I will need some pistons, rings, bearings and other odds and ends.

Now with that being said the build will be slowed due to me having to work 2 jobs and an up coming surgery that will have me unable to do things for a couple of weeks. I will push forward and make it happen. I will sell this one to someone, who knows maybe one of the guys on here will that keep blowing motor will want it...:D I'll post some pictures when I get home tonight from work.

Kirt doesn't need the block, I do! I have 2 weeks left for my build and no bare block!

So are looking for a STi block???

brfatal 07-12-2011 01:14 PM

I need one this week. I actually found one 5 hrs away, but I don't want to make that drive after work to get it....

pzr2874 07-12-2011 01:39 PM

Oh come on. Where's it at ? Here ?

Arrange to meet up half way and buy the guy dinner or something... That's what I did when I got my block I'm using in my build... Turned an 8 hour drive into 4.

He lives further than that. He only wants to drive an hr away. I'm trying to get him to do an hr and a half. It'd be killer if he'd do half way.

RcrsWetDream 07-12-2011 03:10 PM

Ah... Seriously he could throw a sale away for 3 hours.

Paul, I don't need the block. Mine is already ordered. Justin can have it and it sounds like he needs one.

psinuse 07-12-2011 06:13 PM

Well if any of you guys need this block let me know. I am going to take to the machine shop next week.

If I could convince the wife to let me get it and put it in when I blow my stock motor. But dont hold your breath on me.

Well you could always just buy the shortblock off of me when it's done... I can hold my breathe from a pretty long time...:D

newtothegame 07-12-2011 09:40 PM

I could buy it, have my Dad hold it for me, then just have him say he bought it for me, lol.

turmic 07-12-2011 09:55 PM

LOL...uh oh. :sneaky:
