Default Maperformance short block?

its 2 grand if you have your own block and crank.. but is it really worth it since you dont get a new head gasket or head studs? waiting to here back from pirate on a built 6 bolt still.. trying to find something cheaper then building one ground up

DIY is always cheapest.. if you only have to do it once. I would contact Matt Curtis at TMF performance. You can find him on my friends on Facebook as well.

If I ever build my motor I think I will be going with Buschur. Magnus also has some very nice motors.

MAP has a very nice shot block build. Motor builds can get expensive quite fast.

Do you have a good block and crank already? Are you willing to take on the project yourself or do you need someone to build it?

I can do it myself but if its cheap enough to have someone do it for me why the hell not.. that way you know its some right And work would have a warranty

keep in mind, most if not all performance built engines, dont ever have a warranty.. DIY is cheaper, its what id recommend.. or at least having some one do that part of the project for you. Buying used is always a risk. it really depends on whom your getting the stuff from.. a froum member thats wise and knows their S, its a good deal.. a random.. prolly is sketchy..

Looking at it, it looks solid, and seems to rotate well. but ill say this, you wont know anything bout it till it get torn down. At that point, you may need to invest 300-400 to tear down and have a machine shop go thru and verify specs and re assemble. other then that i think its a decent deal

The turbo, wastegate and IC both look to be no names off ebay. all look brand new. the turbo is a 50 trim, so it would be a decent turbo for jesse. However ill say 2 things about it: ebay turbos are very hit and miss.. some last , some dont.. It also is a 5 bolt flange, so there would be some addtional fun in trying to make you a down pipe. not impossible, just a little harder since your already working with tight space. The ic is mint, but like ive discussed with you before, it has separated inlets, you can run this, it will just be more difficult, seeing as its simpler and more efficient for us to run ICs with the inlets on the same side. just rember my sayings.. but in the end its your car and your cash.

why is it easier for inlets to be on the same side? That usually means more piping.

If you ever built a 420a, you would know. it actually measn LESS piping for us (420a/edz) since we are mounte 180 degrees differnt then the 4g6x

I thought we were talking 4g63. Yes since the trans is mounted on the other side I can see where it would be less piping.

Baker machine.

you can tell em the guy with the 2.4 420a sent ya

they are good dudes.. just explain to them you got this motor, its supposed to have "X", you would like them to tear it apart, clean it up , and see if they can verify that "X" is in the motor. above all remember, these guys are the experts, so treat them as such, if they recommend something, its probably in your best interest.
