....pistons. Mine did it when I bought it at 113K miles. Still doing it at 157K miles. Quiet as a mouse when warm.

Hi Guys!

My engine has developed a cold engine piston slap. I was planning to rebuild it this summer, but have a chance to get an EVO 2 engine. Problem is that that engine is non catalytic and that is a no -no here in Germany.

Included are the intake & airbox as well as the nice header, but no electronics or afm.

Could I use my harnes, afm, ecu, etc. ??

How involved would that be? Anyone any experience with that ?

IŽd love to have those 220 hp !!

What is you guys opinion ??
