I was browsing the local chop yard, came across a few gems (not including a galant VR4, Celica all trac, and jdm maxima) but i found a 95 OBS in red, a few justys, and some leggys, and even a loyale, lol. But what caught my attention was a 94 SVX in the far back corner. I checked it out, yanked the hood open, there lays my new H6. For $180, with ALL accessories, A/C, alternator, PS pump, and lines, engine harness with ECU, all misc hoses and wires, fusebox, radiator (which i probably cant use) rad hoses, and a pile of bolts. Hehe, its not pretty, but will be rebuilt with some pretty trick stuff, i have lots in store for this bad boy. I paid off my lame-a$$ speeding ticket so i free to go and spend dough on my car. What ya think?

That engine compared with a 4.11FD transmission, light weight flywheel, and crank pulley will make a killer autocross machine.

hehe, i know. At some point i want to work on my chassis, i really want to look into chassis foam. The chassis/fab guy at my school says i works great, they used it in our schools miata race car. Dunno yet, i do want to run a street roll bar though. Possibly thinking of gutting the car, running floor mount pedals, get some seats...You know, the stuff we never have money for, lol.

I think you should pull that oil pan plug and see how much water may be in there before you decide on buying it. The hood may not have been closed the entire time and the oil filler cap appears to be missing. Otherwise, nice deal

I actually bought the oil cap, it was black and i liked it. And the hoods been off since last week when someone bought the battery and cruise actuator, theyve only had the car for less than a month.

Billy, my friend out here blew up his hawk-eye, hes buying my block and heads, i have the intercooler and turbo and all that, so the possibility of turboing this is good, but the only issue now is to figure out where to put stuff, this thing barely fits as is, lol. Ill let you know if i need anything, see you next saturday.

The only issue I see here for you is that you are going to run into the same thing as people running JDM swaps, YOU WILL NOT PASS STATE INSPECTION, the car will NOT be OBDII compliant and therefore once again you'll be SOL.

Best of luck to you with this one. Talk to the guys up at XX Tuning, one of their employees or associates or guys they associate with has an RS with a SVX engine in it that is strictly used as a racecar. He has done a lot of development on it and it's a pretty sick car however it took him a long time and a lot of headaches to make it work. It's fast, but not as fast as you would expect.
