I guess I misspoke.

I haven't that much of a clue about cars. I know general maintenance and thats about it. But I'm smart and learn quick...so as long as I had some general instructions I could do it.

What would the total cost of the head, bolts, and cam cost me?


Also, since I am clueless, with the sprocket is it just a decrease in the number of teeth? ..can you still use A/C?


How long of a procedure is this?

Would anyone in Ohio help me if I bought some beer and offered some money? :wink:

The package is $375, the sprocket is $25. I will throw in the bolts.
Check out the package here

It has nothing to do with that stuff. Its a cam sprocket, and the alignment is altered

For a non-mechanic, probably a good Saturday job

Thank you very much.

I know WEOH is from Ohio, I believe. He also frequents one of the Yahoo Geo Forums....


I will probably be getting back with you within a few pay checks! Thank you for the info! :)

What I really want to know is how much of what do you get from this operation? I'm not a car person either (but I'm gonna be). I'm just really getting into my Metro.

I am in a race with this other Geo Metro guy in my small town and he's pulling approx. 80 hp out of his 3cyl engine. He had a cam ground for low end (don't know the measurements) and his throttle body bore out to 42mm with a custom exhaust. What can I get from this operation you offer?

I'm sorry if I sound weird. I want to get everything out of this little engine. And another thing... I have a reman. completely new long block, would it be cheaper any coming to you new/unused? Of course I'd want to use my own (paying $1700.00 for it).

And you said in your ad, FURTHER CUSTOMIZATION IS ALWAYS WELCOME, what else are you capable of doing? My DAD makes all the final decisions on engine work so I want to give him lots of choices. Ya know talk him into favorable money spending.

Pretty good chance he is closer to 70hp with those mods. You should be able to run with him with a head package. The higher compression, advanced timing sprocket, porting and performance cam make a huge difference.
If you send your head, we could work something out on the price. Your head doesn't need the rebuild portion of the package.
Further customization could mean more serious porting, higher compression, O ringing, solid lifter coversion, or even modding the air injector tube ports for direct injection nitrous.
If you want it, I'll do t. :D

Its expensive, like $200.You could use either the injector bosses, or the air tube hole. They exit right inside the bowl, just near the head of the valve.

Thank you.

Is there anything else you can do to it? What other mods can you do? What all are you capable of? I don't mean to sound rude. If I do.. I just want the best for this car. I've spent too much money for it not to be high-tech.

I don't know what their policy is.
You can send your head, or wait until you receive one from me before you send yours back. That way you have no downtime, waiting for parts. The core charge is $50 on head pkg.

No problem. I have several excellent grinds for that motor.

Does the port/polish 10.5:1 compression and the 220/.365 cam pass emissions if not what does?

No.
Emission testing is different in every state/province, so its not possible for me to predict what will, and what won't pass.

It depends on what is wrong with it. I do GT heads, but I'm booked solid at the moment.

I'm wondering what the highest compression is that I can run on the G10 with putting pump gas in it. I'm looking to make a car that is just bairly streetable. I've dumped about 3k into my Celica, and I wish I would have found this Metro sooner. But I don't care about radical cams, I'll keep my foot on the gas or just set the idoil up. I don't want it breaking down all the time, but if it breaks once a month, I could handle that. I seen you offered 14:1, but I don't think that is streetable. But I don't know these cars at all. Let me know what you can do for me, till then I'll just keep searching this wonderful forum.

10.5 seems to work best on the metro motor, and allows lots of timing with 94, or even 91/92 octane.

How much do you have to shave off to get to 10.5:1 how about 11:1?

You don't think 11:1 would be able to run on 94 alright? If it's a problem, I can get a little bit of race gas to mix. I'm really hunting for that 11:1, and 9000rpm shift points in the g10. I guess I just want to hear that that is not unreasonable. I'd like about 100hp NA.
