Yea Gwizzy. He's hurtin. Pretty sure i spun a rod bearing. :(

My plan is to give the lil guy a heart transplant(forged internals) and then a little snail buddy to keep him company. :)

For now he's on the transplant list.

So rebuild list. Only things that won't happen with the rest is the poly mounts. I'll get that

Anything else glaringly missing?

Have you tore into the engine yet to figure out what happened? Im starting to think about just pulling mine and rebuilding now. Having no luck selling the car, and I miss driving the damn thing! Topspeed offers a short block rebuild service for a pretty decent price, thinking about maybe sending it off to them if I can't do it myself

No I haven't. I'm having my buddy tow it out to his pole barn for the winter. I won't have the time or money to tear into it come late march.

Yea. It's been 2.5 months and it's killing me not driving it. :(

At this point I say year it apart and rebuild it. Your never gonna get any money out of it with a blown engine.

I know how that goes, not having the money is why I decided to try and sell it. But now since its not selling and tax time is coming up been thinking about a rebuild now. If the block is still good and no internals are trashed, nothin shouldn't be too bad of a rebuild

Yea as long as the insides look pretty good you should be alright. just replace the bearings or whatever is bad.

Im planning on a turbo so thats why im replacing everything with forged stuff etc.
