I wasn't too sure, my engine has 260k km on it, I thought it might start to get week soon. I would to just hate to get everything all fixed and then the motor $hit the bed on me.

I looked at those as well. Definitely reasonable but still out of my weak ass price range. I'd still try to get him lower though. That's the nature of the beast.

Its been in the driveway for about the last week, It didn't pass smog and I'm waiting for parts, and the parts I have need to be modified, and I work like ten or eleven hours a day and can't get it done, and i'm having a really hard time making it to the DMV to get a moving permit to even drive it legally. Its a HUGE pain in the ass

Well it runs when the intake manifold isn't sitting on top of the engine. I'm replacing the intake air temp sensor that is under the manifold near the firewall, and its a PITA to get at so I pulled the intake manifold. It runs great when all put together lol
