    Unhappy Bad Bad Day

    Well i decided to go for a drive today... I get a little ways down the freeway and i start to notice a loud noise from my motor, i turn around and drive straight to the shop and they drive it and tell me i have something wrong internally and they need to check more indepth but they think i have started to throw a rod so pretty much i need a rebuild...... itll cost about 4000 all said and done for a stock rebuild but they are gonna do the 408 instead and itll cost me about 5500 all together it might take me a couple of months to save up to pay them off but they are letting me pay as they go

    My condolences. If ours ever gives out it will receive the same upgrade - not anything I am planning for though. Hope all goes well for you.

    Pay-as-you-go is a pretty sweet deal IMO. Not many shops allow that.
