NICE! I am SOO glad things are coming along well for you. I know it had to totally suck to have that failure right after taking possesion. I AM glad you were able to find a new motor lickity split at a good price and that my small contribution was able to help get ya on the road again.
6-7 on a 3.8 is perfect... but I know what ya mean.. after you go to a 3.25 that gauge is useless lol.
That cam looks mint.. I'm glad it escaped unharmed. You can keep it, or sell it off for ~200 and recoupe some costs for the motor. That cam was in there a good 30,000 miles and that timing chain and dampner looks good.
Can't wait for the whoreage.. and glad your still thrilled with it
It'* gonna be hawt once you put some time into her interior. I miss it... :( I miss the power :(
