Woot found my B18C1! I get the whole car(meaning plus chassis) but just that it was in a accident and the driver side doors are trashed, the engine is still good with no leaks btu with 115,000 miles on it.

Year: 1998 GSR USDM
Complete Engine

Axels
And Everything Else

Price: $2,000
Mileage: 115,000

compression test, but if you can get an entire B18 plus chassis for $2000 i say go for it, fix the doors up and you'd be good to go

Finished

Compression tested from 245-250.

I might jsut take the engine out and swap out my B16 if everyone thinks it's a good buy. Plus will the integra back rotors work for a drum->rotor back conversion?

i think you need whole rear trailing arm assembly, plus brake lines, plus new master cylinder & proportioning valve


other than that, if it passes compression & leakdown tests, snag it

I don't know what the average compression test for a 98 GSR should be but yeah I got

245 245 248 250

If anyone knows what it should be at please do tell, thanks. I am just worried 115,000 miles lol.

And I should be able to get all those items for the back conversion on the teggy right?

numbers look nice and strong, and within 10% of each other...

i'd ask if they recently rebuilt the engine and/or head, or completely babied the car & motor


nominal compression should be 270 I believe

Just asked the car was stored during winters and driven on mostly on weekends. No re-built and I rechecked the engine again with no leaks at all and all timing belt sounds really good.
