This car had a built 2.5 that was already using oil when I got it and had developed a tapping noise. After taking that motor down we discovered a bad piston and cracked cylinder wall. Well, I decided then to have a new built from scratch bottom end and have the already worked heads treated to a bigger set of cams, valves,etc... In doing so, I started cutting quarter panels/fenders and rewelding for the widder stance that it has now. Coilovers went in, other suspn. parts installed, it was just getting a lot of time and money dumped on it while waiting on the motor. A few months later the motor was back and time to start it up. As power started to present itself, problem starting arriving. Simple bolts being found loose, vacuum issues, fueling and oiling blowby...??? We thought it may have been a bad injector, had them checked. Nope, good to go, but the oil would be 50 miles in and smell like raw fuel... Then we did a compression leak down and this is where it all goes down hill... I didn't get 1800 miles out of it before another block let go taking out another piston.... what aggravates me more is that the heads were NICELY done and the bottom end you would swear was put together by my 6 year old... So, money gone. I decide I like the car and the wife hates me at this point cause I tell her we built this thing to handle upward of 500WHP and it can't make it to 400WHP before poof...Mind you, I like my wife alot more than I do this car...Why are you just selling the shell anyways? whats the motor going into?
