Well looking at cost, it is much cheaper to grab another motor from a salvage yard. I picked up one today. It was less than half what a complete rebuild would be. It’s hard times, what can I say. But at least I’m back in budget. The motor looks good from the outside. I’m going to give it a once over on the stand, check the oil pan and under the valve covers before i tear into it.
I gotta go get a few odd and end things tomorrow at lunch and then tomorrow night get to wrenching on the new motor.
I also got news that my tuned pcm is on its way.
