Re: Heinous Rodknock from 1986 Mr2

If you go the shop route get to a well respected 4AG builder. There are some that people will suggest. I can't give you any shops in your area, I'm not familiar. A good shop will cost a pretty penny, but you can be sure of the build. Do be careful of taking references from peeps that don't have 4 b...

Re: Heinous Rodknock from 1986 Mr2

First off I kind of have to agree with the whole red rant but it seems like 90% of AW11s are this same red lol. The car is reasonably rough in most areas. The engine is highly questionable, all the leather inside is gone, the paint has been baked down to the primer in a lot of spots and one of the q...

Re: Heinous Rodknock from 1986 Mr2

$2500 is a decent budget. Find out what damage is done and you'll have a better idea of where to start. You're going to get suggestions of what you have to have, some are just personal preferences of other people, some are necessities. Examples being a 7-rib block is a must and a 42mm crank/rod set...

Re: Heinous Rodknock from 1986 Mr2

And then for any of you, if when I get the e...
