WOW, i have a tough decision to make! I met with the owner of the dealership yesterday and this is what i have to decide: He will give me a trade in value of 2,000 for my car, he said it prolly would be like 1200 even it was running right for a normal person so that 800 makes up for the money i just spent on the timing chain crap. he will give me a 2k5 GTP with the COMP G package (Black of course) for 26,000 (incl tradein). AND i get to strip my car of all the goodies, he said they would even tow it to circuit ctiy so i can swap my stereo system back out!
OR, he will give me a new 2004 GTO for 25,000.
Silver w/red leather int. Its an automatic though, and i would have to pay a 1,500 gas guzzler tax. (Not for the manual though) thats not as practical though driving in rush hor traffic every day.
I would like to get my alternator, battery which is a month old optima red top, comp chip, wheels, intake pipe, coils, MSD ignition, and stereo system out. he said he was going to part it out, he'll make up the differnce on the Tranny alone.
ITs also got a new ac compressor, water pump, harmonic balancer, egr valve, TPS sensor and a lot of other **** he'll be able to use.
I told him i hadnt decided yet and i wnat to know exactly what is wrong with my engine to see if can be repaired without needing a replacement. it WAS still running.
This is what it sounds like now. http://www.fred.net/noelsy/enginenoise.htm
