My shop had twins.



Neither one can move. The close one is ready, but I don't have a key. The one in back has a spun rod bearing.

Well, I replaced the t-stat this morning with a 180*, which was what was in it already. I'm thinking that is what through the code to begin with. Too cold to do the coupler though. Sucks having both stalls in the garage filled...

You're lucky! I wish I had a shop like that right now. Sharp looking cars too.

The closer one is a top swapped L36, I did the tune on it. Just dropped in a built transmission. It'* ready to go. The back one has a spun bearing, so that engine is coming out, and a new block will be brought in. He picked up a stage 2 turbo. So he'* selling all his parts. Should go like all heck when done.

I think a lot of them are spoken for. The closer car is interested in his fuel rails and intercooler. And someone else wants his headers. It does have a ported supercharger and LIM and a phalonic spacer. I believe it has a N* throttle body and LS1 MAF. His cam is going in the new engine.

The supercharger and LIM would be what would get me in trouble. Oh well, I gotta pay for school right now anyways. Plus I don't know how deep into the pockets getting my car to run right is going to be. And I still need some tools for school so...yep bank accounts drained already. Look at that lol.
