Thanks for the reply, I will check them out. I just cant really justify spending almost $10,000.00 ($8500.00 + extra "stuff")on this car. I dont really plan on keeping this car forever.
Since I am on summer break, this would be the best time to tackle this project if I do decide to fix it or do it myself. I dont have the tools, space, or skills to do a full engine rebuilt though, I guess i can learn, lol.
But I would like a way to "rigg" it cheaply first. Does anybody know about those oil additives that restore compression that can be found in auto parts stores "like slick 50, duralube, etc."? How about using extra thick motor oil?
