6 weeks ago I had a catastrophic Timing Belt related issue that demolished my engine. I sourced a used SVTF engine on the good old interweb with only 41K documented miles (I ran a Carfax on the VIN of the SVTF the engine came from originally, just to be on the safe side) for $2,000 which included shipping, a full 3 year/36K mile warranty on the entire engine.
Finally I will be getting my SVTF back early next week and I can't fricken wait. I have missed it dearly!
