I hate to do this, but I don't have any choice.
A customer bought a complete turbo 3 top end from a wrecking yard not too far from me, and had it shipped here directly for a cylinder head performance rebuild. I was then supposed to ship the complete assembly to him.
It has been done for some time now, and I haven't heard from him in over two months. I have informed him of my plans to recoup money's owed, and he has yet to respond.
Parts include:
Rebuilt and performance modified Mk2 head
Intake manifold
Turbo manifold with turbo
Intercooler and related piping.

I believe this to be a complete turbo swap. In other words, all the mechanical parts to convert a regular g10 to a T3

I will take pics of the parts and list a price in the next few days. I have also told the customer that I will not sell anything for at least a week (and probably more) in order for him to make arrangements to pay. I still have no heard from him.
I don't like doing this, but I have bills to pay too.

No core. It's an outright sale. Cam selection will be the choice of whomever buys it, and will be T3 appropriate

Pics.

The price I have determined is $750, as it contains a rebuilt, modded head, with performance cam, and swirl polished valves. It is OBO, plus shipping

Hi, I just join the team. Very interested about the top end conversion. I have a 92 Geo metro conv 5spd that I want to convert to g10t, knowing that I need to find intercooler, map, ECM, harness, etc... What is the total to ship to T3P 1G9 Calgary Alberta?

I should have posted this earlier. I have a buyer, and I expect the deal to be completed within the next week. If that changes, I will post here.

Hey mate, sorry to clutter your inbox!

Just wanted to see if the sale went ahead? I know you said you would post up but I just wanted to stay fresh in your mind!

I know you generally have your ear fairly glued to the ground when it comes to knowing what's going on in the sprint/firefly/swift market. I was wondering if you would be at all willing to help me get my hands on something exactly like this setup? I have been on the hunt for a while now and I am finding it extremely difficult (and am beating myself up I didn't log on for a few weeks and I missed this post going up!) to locate, communicate and get the bits I am after.

I understand that you're busy and have work to get done and your own problems to deal with, but I would greatly appreciate your help!

Regards
Chris

Yes, this deal went through, and I should be shipping it this weekend.

I will keep my eyes out for another setup, but keep in mind that shipping is going to be crazy. Feel free to PM me for more info
