But supercharging is fun. Let'* see, he had a naturally aspirated engine in his car...

More seriously, I don't mind which way a car gets power. I agree that NA is great, and with fewer moving parts, it'* just less to keep in mind. But there are ways to block out whine if that'* the only problem, and in fact most luxury sedans with superchargers have been engineered not to whine.

I agree supercharging can be fun and I am not saying boost is bad. I do support quiet chargers with loud exhaust rumble

this is the result of my power washing yesterday, the grime on the oil pan was very stubborn. the block came out good though.

i also did the oil pan gasket. i would recomend to anyone that removes the front cover, to drop the oil pan. it is suprising how much coolant will be in the pan. even after it is "drained".

Glad to hear someone else say it. There'* a good 1/4-3/8" that never drains...wouldn't you say?

Sam..I know you don't want to hear this..bbbbbut, on the S2'* we've found that many oil leaks/seaping seems to occur from the back engine cover bolts loosening over time. This causes the leak to appear like an oil pan gasket at the trans/motor connection area. You may want to seperate them and check the bolts.

iirc the rear of the series I is solid... The series II and III uses the rear main plate..

Sam you have nothing to worry about there... But do get that pan cleaned out and replace the gasket, the gasket kit will also include the Oil Pick Up Tube gasket... Take the pick up and clean it out and reinstall with the new gasket..



But while you are there you may consider replacing the Rear main seal

the pan is already back on. and the rear main is a good idea. but im runnin out of time and its time to get my car going. im happy with everything as it is. well as far as solidarity. i have confidence everything will last (knock on wood). it may not look perfect, but it will be solid.

thanks guys.
