what kind of timing belt you are using and oil pump?My current motor that i drive daily. Currently has 10k miles on it. 89 Crx Si A6 block, Y8 head, PM7 Pistons, ACL Race Bearings, Sized OEM Main Bearings, Y8 head gasket. On a stock ecu (PM6). I know it needs to be tuned and all but i run 93 octane all the time and all i did was retard the timing back to 12* at the dizzy and no detonation. Yes it doesnt produce the power it should, and no it doesnt get the gas milage it should, but i get 35 mpg and i walk on vw vr6's. Tuning is gunna cost me to do it right so yea thats why its still stock. But none the less, it runs, and is reliable.
Trust me, i realize that. I hang out with a bunch of euro guys and it was funny to hear them talk mad shit bout vr6's and their potential, which dont get me wrong they do have alot, but they quickly shut up after i walked on one. It make me chuckle.VR6's are not that great, mated with poor transmissions and are generally put in much heavier cars than yours.
