Re: The car finally died
Heres the part that makes me mad too, it only had 80,000 miles! And had every oil change it ever needed from the day it was born! The engine was in unbeleivable condition, its compression was 185 PSI on rach cylender. It broke the wheels loose even with the 2.73, flatlined the damn 140 speedo (I removed the tab on it), I put all new sensors, gaskets, ported stock intake, 21# injectors, true double roller timing chain, headers and custom exhaust, water pump, radiator, power steering, a/c pump, alternator, removed the emissons, upgraded the ignition and transmission. I put over $2000 in it already. What really steams me! A 10 cent part gave out and destroyed it all!!! I blew the high side of the heater core hose. The engine is almost frooze, I rolled it over by wrench and its tight. I'm thiking ofstarting it, but I fear scrapping the cylinder walls, any further. I swear if I blew this thing I'm rebuilding it into a badass with no limit to money. The crown ain't completly dead yet, it still has a good set of tires and transmission.
Also, freshmeat, your right, if I go with a mustang brain I'll kill my economy, I'm just going to rebuild the motor. Also, the brain I have has cruise control, it has a servo and the guy said it came off a automatic mustang. Also, I don't like to put used engines in cars, I never know how the owner treated it and always came out like crap, I just rebuild them for $500 - $700 depending on the motor. I'm going to finish looking at the crown, its 34 degrees out right now, blah. Later.
