When my car is back up and running, I might, or I may transfer the calipers. see below.



Thanks, I appreciate it.



I will check it out in a few minutes.



Yeah Yeah, Your car is driveable, that's all I can say.









Well folks, it appears that I am going to need to do at the very least a shortblock rebuild. The engine starts up and runs, but the ticking noise is disconcerning and I am not going to drive it, or start it up until I'm able to pull the heads. I don't have 6k lying around so I can't afford to have the car towed to a shop to open it up for me, and my stepfather is going to help me pull the engine to open her up come July. That's quite a ways away so I have made the decision to either sell my car or trade it in and snatch up a Z28. It's been a very hard decision to make, but I feel that it's time to move forward. I'm not a fan of the hood and front bumper, but those are easily changed to the 2010 I hope. If you know anyone interested in purchasing Blue Rush as is, please direct them my way. Now's your chance to own a car that's appeared on the cover of a magazine!
I'll pay $10k since the motor sounds Fu@kd!
