Long block built by Dad at engine machine. Over $3k in long block alone, oversized valves non jet valve head. Approx 25k on engine build with wiesco forged pistons. Many desired upgrades, 240mm flywheel, eibach lowering springs, mk1 swaybars ft/rr, mk1 shocks and rear strut bar, rebuilt rear end with what im told are 3:90 but i cant verify for sure. Comes with spare 88/89 5 speed, has 89 computer, walbro, 1g mas, gauges. Reconditioned wheels 3 yrs ago, no rash, bends on all 4 corners.Much more as well, all the building blocks to be a fun, mild to big g54b build. If i cant unload as is I'll be repairing the turbo and selling higher or storing. Pm me

So because i'm a hoarder,  I came across an old rebuilt stock turbo that I thought I no longer had, and I installed it.  Car runs and drives,  turbo building boost. I'll post some pics tomorrow. I'd like to get this thing gone this coming week before I fall back in love with it.
