Way to go! The best part is, every time you start it up, you can think: "I did this." And, you probably saved $2,000! You have a right to feel proud.

Otherwise LOTS of L36 cars. so you have a good base to look at.

That sucks dude, hope you get the bearing that did this!!!
Yea I saw the L36 4.1L stroker kit today. They want $1899 for it though. Plus they recommend putting a bigger cam shaft in it also to keep the KR down. It puts out quite a bit more HP and I don't think my Transmission could hold up to it.

I am just looking for a solution to get me by for about a year and a half. Then I should be graduated from college and can start looking for a newer SSEi. For now it looks like replaceing the crank is the best solution with my pocket book.
You may want to talk to Ed Morad. He has L67'* for about 600 bucks and he may have a few L36'* hanging around. Couldn't hurt to drop him a line. gtped at He is a major supplier for engine/tranny parts for clubgp and is a great guy to deal with!
