    Thanks! Yup, flat pistons, totally stock eta bottom end. Totally worth it.

    Trying out a different look. Stripped paint from the valve cover, polished lettering with 400-600-1200 grit and polishing paste.

    Also cleaned up the brake booster plumbing with some NPT fittings and JB-Weld.

    Ohio => California => Vermont => Pennsylvania => Ohio this summer, still going strong!

    Have this same set up in my 2002. Before that it was in my stripped 87 eta coupe. Thing was ballsy, although the car was light.

    I love my 2.7i - if you can piece it all together relatively cheap and get the headwork done and throw a new clutch in, it's really not a bad set up. Like I said, it makes much more sense if you have access to the swap parts ON THE CHEAP!
