well, things are finally starting to move :) i have the motor down to a shortblock and just need to find an aftermarket cam for cheap to be done with the bottom end. Below is as i was tearing down the motor, it looks to be in quite good shape. THis thing was $137 out the door complete and by bolting the intercooler back to it that came along for the same price. i also had the wiring harness and 5 speed computer laying on it! this was such a sweet deal that i went back the next day and bought a second one. one is from a 90 the other a 91, both 5 speed cars but the transmission were gone from both. While looking for some m90 parts on ebay, i couldnt believe how much m90 blowers were selling for. it occurred to me that i could sell the blower on the motor and buy another one at the jy and be even less in the engine. This year so far, no less than 5 sc tbirds have shown up a the yard, sadly for me all had the blowers gone already except for one that just arrived, and it was a 94! blower, lower intake, plenum, top, and throttle body cost me $39 out the door. sold the 90 blower with the plenum and top for $300! Taht leaves me at $39 for the motor so far :) the last page will get a copy of my budget spreadsheet when i get it off my old laptop.
