    Comment


      Anyone have good current contact info for Keith? Anyone seen him recently at any meets?
      Need a new MS, rather have one of his before I make my own.

        So close!! Well, I'll be ready for another one soon. This time of the year is prime autox/track season. Not blazing hot in the heat of the day but also not freezing in the morning.

        Bummer, where's your skid plate! I've seen prices on those stupid pans go way up... glad I snatched one from the yard before they became a black market commodity

        Figured you had your hands full... swing by again sometime. We could knock out a CSB right quick.

          If you get lucky at the yards they are no more than $40

        Got a hold of an oil pan now, gotta clean it and then look for some more money to get it installed.

            Sooooo.... I'm going to embark on a new venture. Looking for info on M42 to M20 swap. Ideally if I find a really, really cheap M50 with trans and everything attached to it, I'll go that route. For now I'm looking for a detailed thread with this info. I searched and it threw me back to the m30 and other swaps forum and I gave up after 19 pages.
            Btw, I'm using my phone to search, so don't lynch me.

                What’s going on/going to happen with the m42?

                  Here is a car that comes to mind that went from m42 to m20:

                    You'd rather spend the extra time and money to swap that, versus buying an M20 car? Do you already have the car and M20 ready to go?

                    I have an extra M52 in pieces, but they both need rebuilding
