Ready to burn the car to the ground.






Also still have a drivetrain vibration at higher speeds that makes the shifter shake so bad the transmission feels like it's about to fall out.

I'm really surprised you've been this patient! You've had that engine out more times than I would've had patience for!

Can't stop, won't stop! You gotta see this through! What the hell is failing internally now? Have you considered rebuilding the engine yourself from the crank up?

I try my hardest to be patient.

I'm not quite sure what it is now, but oil pressure is still decent and hasn't changed, so not any bearings I don't think. I have plans / a build list to redo the engine completely. Don't really have the funds to jump head first though. Trying to see if I can recoup most of the cost by selling off all the stuff I won't use. Which is pretty much everything Texas Speed haha.

For grins I sent Texas Speed the pictures and they didn't like them either. I don't expect them to do anything as they barely did anything last time. Though not sure I want them to do anything besides possibly a refund at this point. Nothing but issues.

Damn man so sad.. at least the shell of the car is still good. I am assuming you have another car as a daily?

This is technically my daily, but I do have other cars I could daily. I just really enjoy driving this car.

I get you man. After putting in my supercharger and dip into boost hearing the SC whine makes me grin from ear to ear.
