    Ok everyone, had really bad incident here recently..... My Diablo was stolen by some stupid tweaker while my scort was parked at my shop....Diablo was found 2 days later almost out of fuel.... I am very lucky that my Diablo is home.... This is what Diablo looked like before he was stolen... 2016-04-30 18.57.05.jpg

    Who's the goon in the picture? LOL!

    Dude! Where have you been? Granted, I haven't tried to call you but you usually check in at least once every few weeks. I thought aliens had abducted you!! Hahaha!

    You gonna keep the mazda front end on that thing? I kind of like it except for the hack job they did trying to get it to fit the lights.

    So... What would one get if they bolted a SPI head to a '89 1.9 block? I'm guessing a super low comp. interference engine? I only ask because every...single...SPI in all 4 of my yards are there for a dropped seat. I got a brand new reman head but nothing to put it on. Been contemplating a zetec bottom but the work involved (deck machining and custom/longer head bolts) turns me off

    I am ok my friend!!! Just been working my tail off.... Now I am going for Phase 2, pulled the HO engine, installed a stock 1.9L.... I will run that until I get Phase 2 done.... Phase 2 will be reground cam, 2.3L turbo injectors (I got a set from a Mercur Xr4ti 1986), fuel pressure regulator W/ Walbro fuel pump, better valve springs, .010 will come off the head (total of .020), gaskets set and better pistons.... added to this will be a center force Stage 1 clutch.... 20161218_133224.jpg
