      Don't kid yourself. A properly sleeved Honda mill is zero joke. I'd take their head efficiency over my "stout" block all day - everyday .....

      So it cracked between #2 & #3, was this something that was causing a power loss? or did you lose compression in those cylinders?
      As you know I run mine at High comp Turbo. 22psi this year. I am more worried about the head coming off than cracking the block, but then i guess i could be wrong.
      Any info on why or how you found this would be great. Thanks.
      To early to say what it was but I have abused this block alot over the years. It could have been a casting flaw from the manufacture.
      it was a 96 ABA NON oil squirter block that i had tapped for oil squirters.
      I had a head water flang fail causing a over heat/head gasket
      I knocked out #3 oil squirter once and drove 20 miles on low oil pressure.
      I broke a BBM dizzy gizzy and lost oil pressure once.
      I destroyed 1 crank and a set of pistons early on with the 83.0 mm bore 8v S/C
      I Broke a Crank when I hit 10,000 RPM and broke the OEM trigger wheel the first time.
      I broke another OEM trigger wheel at 9000 RPM
      I had the Fuel pump failure and burned the head/ gasket and block.
      I had a OEM thermastat fail at the track/over heat head gasket

      Yeah this block has been threw alot. it has had 20+ psi boost it's whole life.
      I will ask the machinist when i pick it up next week.
      I looked at the new ABA block today and it is a NON oil squirter block also so i am looking for a
      pre 96 ABA w/ OEM squirters.

      I Just pulled out my ABA None Oil Squirter block from My MK2 16vt a few weeks ago. I replaced it with one that has The Squirter's. I have one more ABA block not sure if its got them or not. I will pull the pan tomorrow and see. If it has them you are welcome to it.

      You're acting like I assume honda's don't make power.
      I hang in a shop that boosts/tunes them everyday,

      I don't like them, but I respect them.

      I did, Very nice.
      I do have 3 9a blocks, If you wanted to go that route, I will pull my other ABA down in the morning and let you know just as soon as i do. If its not the right one I do know of one that is, if i remember correct a 95 so it should have them. Dude wants $75. I was going to grab it any way. Fingers crossed the one I have is what you need..

      I did want to ask you, Where do you get your DYNO tuning done at. I Have gone to PRE. Never again.. I was told Forged, but I here bad bad things about them. If you know of a good place please let me know.. Thanks

      Thanks Ryan.
      UPDATE
      so looks like i will pick up the new block from Ryan on monday. I had a agreement to purchous
      a new set of 11.1:1 comp ratio pistons from a local then he bailed...LAME

      Now i am looking at maybe picking up Todd Pavics used set of 11.3:1 83.5mm pistons
      looking to make a high comp ratio turbo setup and make 600whp.
      Todd made 700whp with those pistons.

      1 Last option i am looking at is my Main man and Fabricator Jerry Rynolds of RPM
      Rynolds Performance Motors has a 95.5 stroke crank and a set of 12.1:1 pistons he might build for me.
      That would produce a ****load of WTQ and 700whp no problem.

      my final option is reinstall my 8.5:1 pistons and go from were i was at before add a race gas tune.
      Next week will tell which way i will go.

      New Block is off to the machine shop.
      FYI when a ABA block says MEXICO it is a 96 or newer. this block is a 98 block so the crank is
      cast and there are nor oil squirters.... I took my old squirters down to the machine shop where
      they will drill and tap the oil galley to add my squirters.
      Deck Bore and Main..$$$
      I got the new set of Rings from JE. I am just going to use the old 8.5:1 JE's for this build.
      I have committed to swapping over to E85. so a retune is in order when i install it.
      I will post pics when i get the block back from the ,achine shop.

      Let me know when you get ready for tuning, I want to come down with the bunny for the same thing.
      Maybe get a better deal..

      Sorry about the Block being wrong. If I would have seen it first we could have avoided this crap. Again I am sorry for that.

      No problem, I am glad i have it to the machine shop and will have it ready to assemble soon.
      BTW
      I found the Engine Enamal finally. JEGS

      When i go I will deal for 6hrs for $400 split it with me $200 each.
      I will only need maybe 2 hours. won't take me long to get the current tune adjusted.

      I might be picking up a 80' Scirocco today and build another 16v Turbo drag car that weighs
      1000lbs lighter then the Corrado.

      Are you trying to get as light as me?? That would be cool if you did, then you could do the High Comp that you wanted to do..

      Yeah I know, The ruby red looked Pink... NOT gonna Happen
      I resprayed the intake pipes Cobalt Blue it looked so good i decided to paint the block Cobalt Blue with 10 Lightning bolts to signify the 10 perfect lights i have made over the years.
      That and in pictures i want to be able to identifie this block from the last.
      It may sound and look silly but there are alot of 16vT builds out there these days and i want mine to remain unique.

      That map is 9.1:1 c16 16vt
      because you are higher comp ratio it will need LESS timing. Retard it a few degrees across the
      RPM range then dial it in on the Dyno MBT or Track for highest MPH.
