Ok so in recent news I managed to blow up my engine twice within 3 days. I was having some detonation due to a lean spot that I got lazy about fixing and paid the price by lunching a head gasket. I didn't know it at the time, but it also killed a rod bearing. So I replace the head gasket and do a valve job while I'm there, then 3 days later notice the rod knock. Currently the car is out back on jack stands with the sub frame off. While the subframe is off I replaced all 4 bushings, so now the suspension will be completely new in every possible way.

I'm getting VERY close to having my MegaSquirt based plug 'n play EFI kit ready to ship. Pricing is not final, but within a few bucks of $750 is what I'm saying right now. E-mail me if interested @ sales@5000tq.com.
