So my mechanic is still having trouble with my timing. Every time they turn it by hand, it slips time. No idea what's going on. So I don't really know when I'll get it back now.

I seems like you will need a new VCT Gear ... Have they tried undoing the VCT and putting it back together? Did you tell your mechanic that it was apart and how picky that gear is?

Yeah I told him about it, but he seems to think that I don't know what I'm talking about and that I'm wrong. I told him that I couldn't even torque it down all the way because I didn't have the right torque wrench. I don't know. They're working on it. Hopefully they'll figure it out soon. He even mentioned that the valves might be bent again and I was like wtf, no. That can't be. I've always trusted this guy with all my stuff, but now I'm starting to question it a little bit. Especially since I'm beginning to understand what is going on in my car.
On the bright side though, I just got a new job. I'm now gonna be waiting tables at Olive Garden. Not the most ideal job in the world, but quick cash, and it's a very very very busy location, so I'm hoping to be busy all summer. I'm also about to apply for scholarships and since I've had really good grades, I may be actually entitled to some. Which will give me a little bit of money. I may be following my moms advice with this car and selling it when it's out of the shop. As much as I hate to see it go, I just think it'll be better long run since I need to pay for school and can't be spending this much money on a car and being without one for this long.
Mom did say that she wouldn't oppose another SVT as long as my mechanic checks it out first. So that may be a possibility.

After all of that ... I do agree with your mother.

You are having to many issues with that particular ride ... even from the start.

But don't be a stranger ... hang with us with any new ride you get.

And I would definitely welcome a new ride and you at the AutoX ...
