well let us local folks get dibs on stuff first, you know, to save you on shipping

I could use new seats now that i think about it...and i did recently break that plastic trim piece that holds my shift boot on.

I still need to get it back up here to Brecksville and really assess the damage (Looking for someone with a truck/trailer/free day who will work for pizza, beer and gas money) before I know what I'm going to do. I'd like to at least be able to get most of what I still owe on the SVT back out of it but I really paid more for the thing then I should have because I expected to have it for more then 10 months before it died.

Towed the SVT home friday. The mechanic at the ford dealer said I only have 70% compression in the first cylinder. I haven't had a chance to dig that deep into what is actually wrong but I tried to start it for shits and the air intake actually blew off of the clamps that hold it on.

Anybody in E-check counties think I'd pass if I changed the back big muffler on my rx8 to a Y pipe with no muffler back there? I know mufflers don't remove any pollution, but I'm not sure if they'd try to fail on an anti tamper law for exhaust.

Sounds like your timing belt skipped a tooth or something.
