Did you check the oil for glitter?

This is what my spun bearing sounded like

If it was only that easy. I have pictures, but photobucket seems to not be working, so I can't upload them yet. Also have a picture of a scan when it finally went out.

sorry dan i just got back from the shop and the last one sold this morning. my next one will start being rebuilt next week, it would be new rings machined block, crank , rods. kings racing bearings, arp rod bolts, arp main studs. i know you have a nice cam so i could leave the stock one out and just put new bearings in. also series 3 powdered rods are avaliable. it would be my 5th rebuilt engine. no failures. mine has 1500 miles on it and acheving amazing gas mileage everyday, but if your in a hurry i would choose someone else, i take a little bit sine im in school.
