Compression, without updated valve lash and probably a bad injector

2. 240
3. 230
4. 240
5. 240

The injection shop that tested it said that a valve adjustment and rebuilt/new injectors will help those numbers.

Is it worth it? The body is not in terrible shape, but the transmission isn't to happy with the world (vacuum issues, and probably needs new springs to).

To save or not to save this car?
Call me tomorrow after 10:00 Am.
