    "NEW" ENGINE, Upgrades BEFORE/AFTER PICS & VID

    Engine finally DONE!

    I recently got the following done to my engine. I had 3 oil leaks in the car, Rear main seal, Oil gasket, and another leak that no one can figure out where it was coming from. Turns out it would be around $1500-2000 to fix it.. And I thought, what's the point of fixing an OLD 15 year old engine. So I set forth to get the engine remanufactured. I then decided to get a cam, ceramic edelbrock TES headers, ignition system, etc. Total $7000cdn

    Here is what was done:

    1 - New 5.7L V8 350 engine (Rebuilt with new Pistons, Bearings, Valves, Seals, Springs, Lifters, Timing Set, Polished Crankshaft, All new Gaskets, Including Head Gaskets, Intake, Rear Main seal, Timing Gasket and Front seal).

    1 - Intake Manifold

    1 - 3 Year, Parts and Warrenty (60,000km Warrenty) on all related parts.

    1 - Comp Cam

    Here shows the cracks and WELDING the previous owner did (he was a welder). Surprized to see this when they opened the engine up - http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b5...s/100_7780.jpg
    Left over fasteners, plugs, etc :

    Apparently the engine had compression leaks, running quite lean, coolant leakage inside the engine, cracked intake, welded intake with the 6 years the original owner had the car (obviously abused!)

    PLEASE do not wait six months for a 1/2 price oil change on a newly rebuilt motor! More like a couple hundred miles.
