Dude, that'* freaking terrible. You should be able to get a used motor installed for like 1200 parts and labor, i know that'* how much it was going to cost me.
I would hold on to that car man, it'* really nice esp with that performance tranny, that'* big bucks.
Good luck.
And if you wanna do a series 2 L67 swap, it will bolt up and it has been done, i think Sprial did it?

I know its not the same having being offered a deal on a new car, and I would do all i can to get the dealership to fix their F-ups, but atleast you might get a good deal on a GXP model And from exp dealin with dealerships, when you start talkin court, they mysteriously start working harder to make everything right

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
(uses active X control)

what would you do??

depends how loaded u are! that comp g would be sweet...but i dont go that cash

i think you could get way more, like double, for that car if it was running right....even with all the mods off of it..

ur car sounds like a model T...

sucks they would part out a beauty...

yah, i'd hate to see it be parted too.

They had a 2k5 GTO with the ground effects package that was only 34,000 and the silver 2k4 was 33,500 but he said he couldnt give me all that money off for the 2k5. I would have took that in a heart beat that car was gorgeous!! I'm kind of leaning towards to GTP depending on what thtey find with my car. Oh yeah, he said they would take my engine apart free of charge to determine whats really wrong.

decisions decisions
