    Ya but he already said he has to have it shipped and they wont ship to cal even if there in cal. Have you read this thread yet? Try reading posts 1, 10, 24 there all here to read if you would take the time to do so. Then you might be able to help if that is why you are posting here that is? lol

    Well its aganst the law to ship one of these motors in or to cal? Have your ordered a complete motor or kit after the new cal laws? If you know a dealer that will break the law it might be a good idea to tell the op in a pm dont get the dealer in hot water by posting his name in an open forum.

    I don't understand what the problem is here. You can buy a new kit from anyone in Cal. You got Venice and if I remember correctly, Dax is out there too.

    See? No problem!

    .duh.

    You can have it shipped with in the state you live in. Call one of these vendors and find out.

    You are going to have to make a compromise somewhere otherwise you arent going to get your engine . i just did a custom because i could get the engine shipped to California. I offered to have your engine bounced to you and i would even pay for the extra shipping it would take a little longer but you would get it at no extra charge , I even have extra engine parts that have never been used that i would throw in there clutch pads better gasket material better mounting bolts extra mounting hardware, new gears , all this free , that's a pretty sweet deal

    I think you will just have to order a top end and bottom end kit and youll be fine. I always take my motors apart anyway to clean up castings port match and lap the head and jug. You might have to pay a few dollars more for shipping but if you order the top and bottom at the same time you wont have to wait any longer then if you just ordered a motor.

    If you buy the top and bottom ends and a gasket kit it will cost you about $85 to $100 shipped off ebay that is. The motor in your link (The $140 kit in the link in the deleted post lol) is the motor I have but mine is the slant head 2010 EPA ver. They say the 2010 motor is better but they wont say how lol. Seems like a fare price for a kit but do you want the kit or the motor?
