      Time was an issue, getting ready for wuste, that and the fronts are fine the rears were all wavy from rolling/attempting to pull them with a fender roller.

      I kinda like it though.

      I just wanted to say that I've been following this build for a while now and your work and dedication is simply amazing. Especially all the work you put into paint prep. Simply mind boggling how great of a job you did with all the fabrication, sanding, etc. Love every part of this build man. Much props for going after it!

      Please tell me if I'm mistaken, but I saw you post about being on Accuair E-level management. Is there any possibility you could post up photos of your sensor mounting locations? And my guess for the reason the car is on the truck is water pump or something timing related.

      It was just wear and tear, it was about 10,000 km's from being at its 100,000km lifespan, I figured I could make it till it got parked for winter and pull the engine.

      Depends what all is damaged, at this point, its get it back on the road so I can drive it for another 2 months.

      If its completely toast, gt28rs, maybe a stroker, I dont know, gotta think about it and see what the budget allows, being a student says, not much, still gotta pay off the paint/the new set of tires I put on less than a week ago.

      For stroker. 6 1/2 months in Afgahnistan is getting me the build I want. Full stroker w/ AEB head and LSD. Due to start as soon as I get back in October. I hear ya though on the budget thing. Im hoping the damage isn't too extensive.

      Sweet deal. I'll be watching.

      Hopefully not as I was going slow, from the location of the cams it doesnt really look like any valves are at full open, but its hard to say where they were when this all happened.... Hopefully the head is coming off tomorrow. Parts list is building.

      At least I'll be able to check the hot side of my turbo to wee why that gasket keeps blowing.

      looks like the block is in decent shape. new guides, seals, valves, and a hot-tank away from being back on the road. hell, i'd look into cleaning up the ports while it's all apart. (Not porting, just cleaning. some turbulence is your friend on FI cars)

      glad to see it's not as bad as it could've been.
