Effduration, thank you for the wealth of information. Yes the HG job doesn't scare me, and I understand the value of going the extra distance (refresh). Body and interior is in pretty good shape and I've done a lot of other maintenance and upgrades that should give me a few more years at least. So...
Where are you located and what is the avg cost of salvage engine vs the parts for refresh including heads? Exclusive of labor of course, just looking to get an idea...
Car has sat a few days, started it today for a quick ride. Not too much smoke, low coolant light came on, rough start. Drove about 5 miles, sat and idled and SEL came on. A few codes, not unexpected...
Compression test this weekend for sure!
