Oh My Bad Luck!
ok im going to sum this up in a nut shell to make it as least painful as possible lol 1994 camaro z28
i bought my car about 3 months ago with blown head gaskets,needless to say i jumped all over the car, did the head gaskets, scrapped the manifolds , put on a set of long tubes and y pipe with slp loudmouth exhaust , new water pump and optispark , plugs and wires , eliminated egr and air pump , had the ecu reprogrammed by bryan herter. These mods were done after the car ran fine with the head gaskets headers and air egr removed.. new air intake system...new starter and alternator...
Bought z06 wheels for a steal, lowered the car all around... Swapped every interior piece over to black including seats , door panels , headliner ect.. painted front bumper due to scrapes and scratches , and even put ls1 taillamps on it...
Started the car up one day and heard a squeal... BADDDDDD .. so i did like everyone else would do , and took the belt off to eliminate my accessories.. and sure enough im having a beautiful crank bearing squeal...
But thats not it!
while pulling the motor , the car was sky high in my garage and everything came out the bottom i had to jack the car up 1 more inch to slide the engine out to the side, sure enough the first pump the car slides off 6 jackstands and off the car ramps.... slamming my garage door and the bumper i just painted and cracking my fender....
YET as if that wasnt enough! i come home the other day and my father tells me the spring let loose that holds the garage door open and damaged my car, sure enough that had to hit the good fender... OF COURSE!
Just venting .. im done lol just hoping you guys are doing better!!!!
im sure i left out some info lol
