I bought a y5 block in great condition, y5 cank that spun a rod bearing but is certainly fixable - $10 for both. a 96 ex 5speed tranny - $50. a y-something im - $20. y series valve cover - $10. and a 4 into 1 header - $40. almost forgot, aluminum oil pan - $30. pics are below, tell me what you guys think about it, oh and the head is a p08 z6 that i am doing a p&p on, there is a pic of that in there too.

i will be using all of this whe ni start my turbo build, and yes i am going to be using an ebay turbo kit, and yes i know that they aren't the greatest, but its all i can afford anymore, a new house and kids kinda suck the wallet dry pretty quick.

part out ;D?
yeah the guy had lots of stuff in his building, i tried to get him to sell me both ex tranny's but he would only part with one of them, as well as a d15 that he had built into a mini-me, but he also would not part with it, i got everything else he had though:3dbiggrin:

damn bro wtf??? how'd u get all this shit for so cheap? Craigslist? why cant i get lucky with finds like this?!?!?! lol
craigslist is where i found it all, i just got lucky, the guy needed to get rid of some stuff to make some room, plus he was a really nice guy, i actually bought more than i had originally planned to.

You just bought a HX block, HX tranny is also P4A B000, run the VIN plate on the tranny or PM it to me.

Somewhere I have a Honda VIN decoder

oops, made a mistake on the decoder, it is an hx, bummer, oh well at least i have a big bearing case now, now i am in search of some ex gears or at least a final drive, and once again, at least it is a little better than the pos vx tranny i'm currently running.

which Vin decoder did you use? The link I had is now dead :(

Also the number was missing some digits.


1HG
EJ?
12x 1 = 5 speed, 2 = DX or HX

Still a good backup tranny.....I built one about like it for backup.

i used the one from decodethis.com, it told me about the car that it came in, it's a 97 hx tranny, but i will still use it for something, if nothing else, i will use it to build a race tranny using mfactory gears, bearings and syncros.
