Nice find. At the very least it has Charcoal interior :)

Why Intake VVT though?

thanks Hussein...charcoal is the only reason why I went to look at it and most likely bought it... if it was beige i would not even leave my house to look at it...lol...cams are in backwards ...i'll be using R head with 01 exhaust vt gear only...the way it came..and I wanted to use the original cam cover so i dont have to make intake sensor cam cover but it was not a match.

entire harness covering is all done...i am anal about lill things like that...and 28 years ago when i stared working on cars i would not have it any other way but the factory OEM way to the last bolt and nut and god forbid if i would cut or drill a hole that was not meant to be there...lol ...this c70 is a tribute how i use to fix all of my cars ...lol... only difference is I would not buy or use any used parts to built any engine like i did here...biggrin.gif now all i have to do is to replace a window regulator and just wait for 16t turbo to arrive and see how this R engine runs.

im swapping engines/trannies on my P2 when the weather gets nicer and figuring i wouldn't be done for over a month!

Thanks Kit, not ruining yet...apparently i'm can assemble entire engine together from scraps of three engines, then a junk yard remove a turbo and ship it out to me...lmao
