The spark plugs looked a little hot when I pulled them for the compression test.

Soooooooooooo I guess now I might as well build a solid motor.. I have my eye on a short block built by Graveyard Motorsports (yeah I just heard of them too) and they have a solid short block deal

Stage 2 Custom Built Short Block EJ257
  • All Custom Machine Work Included
  • -CBN Resurfaced
  • -Hot Tanked
  • -Bored and Finished Honed to Piston
  • -Torque Plating Optional
  • -New OEM Blocks Optional, No machine work required
  • Forged Piston ( Usually Manley, Wiseco, or CP)
  • Forged H Beam Connecting Rod ( Usually Manley or Eagle)
  • New OEM Crankshaft
  • ACL Bearings
  • ARP Main Studs!!
  • New Freeze Plugs
  • Upwards of 650 HP

They give you a bunch of options on the build like nitrated crankshaft, other stuff.. Looks like a good package all for $2800. Can you guys recommend anything else local to San Diego?
I am also in san diego and having the same problem. My car is currently at subie shop in oceanside recommended by crawford, im getting a compression test tomorrow morning.
