Seems like the bottom ends of the Series 2 are a hit or miss.

Seriously, since Black is the fastest color it only makes sense. Since our motors are making the most power they are going to tear some **** up from time to time.

I already have another temporary ride lined up which I'll pickup tomorrow. They are so many things going on in my life right now Iím just rolling with the punches, nothing new. It was 1 month ago to the day I changed my pan gasket and I had a very odd feeling looking at my bottom end; I even said something to my dad at the time. Looks like Iíll be leaving her at the shop tomorrow awaiting a new heart.

Your welcome to come to Ohio and show me how to do it Bill. I have a full Automotive repair shop at my disposal and can use it as I please

At this point I'm trying to weigh the cost & benefits of a nice rebuild vs a used motor. Everyone I work with says I should rebuild & thatí* including my dad who is lending me some money to get my car back on the road. I know a few people at Wiseco (which is local too) so I could possibly get a sweet deal on some nice 9.5:1 pistons. I need to start figuring out costs. Going to talk to Intense some more and see about maybe a rebuild from them. Something tells me this topic will branch of into Performance & Brainstorming very soon .

Ed


I miss her already

There are pros and cons to both ways.

If I can suggest though..while you are determining your options.. buy a dremel and pull the charger off. Do your sig'* dream of porting/polishing while you can't use the charger.

Thats the thing I already have 2 spare M90s and one spare set of L67 heads. Already working on 1 M90 case.

Got my car in a nice spot in the shop today. Probably the last time she will ever move under the power of that motor.

In related news I may just do my motor up and have the trans done at the same time! My dad who is offering to lend me some money to get this going said he would like to see me do my cam and trans at the same time, even if it requires lending me a little more money. By myself I would only be able to afford a new motor right now.

I think I need to talk to Todd again and see what we can work out on my budget.

Dont get down on your self too bad. My black car is sitting in the garage with a gernaded tranny (motor is almost out and ready to be built to go in the white car). The white car is sitting in the driveway with the same rod knock you have. LOL

Nice! Looks like you're making "lemonade" in your situation.
