Heh, you think that sucks. Paid for a full rebuild. Didnt even get to sit in the car, and it threw a rod bearing, again. So thanks to a shitty machine shop not properly specing my crank, I was forced to rebuild the bottom end again.

But dont worry itll get better as you go. Just keep working hard, and make sure you can cover all the money the car will suck out of you. Good luck

yea.. try to find the best shop out there. Someone w/ knowledge w/ these 7m's. Like i read the whole thing about the ct-26 60-1(technical) to find where is the best place to take it. So i took my turbo to pt, and they did a great job and finish real quick, plus it only cost me $450 because i am a local B).

Sorry to hear that bro, many other people would of just giving up if it had happen to them.
