Scott has been a huge help with my cars.My red Metro started out bone stock but after many long hours it is almost where I want it to be.I do have his GTI but we have a hand shake contract the long and short of it is.He gets first dibs on the GTI.With my back being messed up right now I could not ask for a more capable person to do my build.

I wanted to share some pictures that Scott sent me.
He took the head off of my old engine and pulled the old pistons out and there was some damage.I will tell you this was a result of 6000 rpm for some time.My engine paid the price but the kid driving the RX7 will for ever know a GEO METRO kicked his ass. :blackeye:

where do you get the vitara pistons, are you shaving the head, what compression are you looking to get, grinded cam or stock? :razz:
