Iamcam Right now I need to get a replacement vehicle, my sister has offered to sell me her '06 altima for extremely low, 65k miles on it. In the meantime, I'll probably rip the engine out take it apart, either selling the bits on it or as scrap metal. All the while saving up for a duratec racing crate...with a turbo ofc ;)

Valve Seat FAIL on thanksgiving.

Obviously no thanks were giving from me today besides from being alive and having dinner with my family once again. Driving home from my grandparents home and I started noticing this heavy vibration, which turned into a loud noise. I immediately stopped and turned the car off, well more so turned the car off and THEN pulled over. Only to realize that the car wouldn't stay running. Got home around 6 after a tow, took the head off to find metal shavings in cylinder 2 and cylinder 4. Bye bye valve seats and bye bye focus. Good thing the suspension and tires haven't been taken out of the box yet!

Edit: I just passed 70k miles on the vehicle.
