That is quite a few miles, so it could be pump then. I was thinking you were in the 150'ish range. Over 200K, the car's had a good life and you shouldn't expect a whole lot more IMO. Seems for most the body is pretty much done by the time you get that far.

I guess I'd see what that guy from Seattle couple post above wants for that engine. Easy day trip to get it then spend the next weekend swapping.
And FWIW, I think it's easier dropping it out the bottom complete vs pulling it out the top.

After work today I'm cleaning my air filter and giving her a wash, then some detailer, then some spray wax. She's going to look as good as she can for the 3 hour drive tomorrow! Representing up the east coast :P

Coming up to Ohio? Come race some go-karts. Do you have one of those K&N panels or a cone?

Put my cheapo tires on.

First impression, boy-o-boy are they quiet. Seem to grip rather decent too. Haven't tested any serious cornering yet (that's best left for a quiet night with no traffic, speed).

I'd say they are well worth the $200, so far.
