It's not my car. That's a VR-4 I picked up for Matt with a busted ass motor. Ironically it's a Sandstone Grey 92. The car ran completely out of oil somehow. All of the noise is from up top so far. There's atleast one intake valve that I know of bouncing off a piston. The oil pressure is shitty so the bottom end is shot. Overall, if I were to summarize tne motor in one word; it would be fuct.:D

hay stop racing that thing:) lolol

Ya I bought that car off the net, and it was only 40 miles from Powel's house so he went and got it for me:), the funny parts is he drove it to his house like that! 40 miles:) lolol...

the guy told me the motor was blown so no big deal, I got a good deal on the car:)

that will be my next build to order car:) So if you are interested in having a custom 92 VR-4 built let men know I can build that car how ever you want.

if some1 does not buy it before hand, I am going to put a new motor in it with stage 2 heads, and stock everything els to give the new owner a nice foundation to start from if thy choose to mod it.

Good job Matt! That sounds like a good idea for other tuners across the states to get a hold of. Then people can just buy these mechanically sound cars and not have to worry above crap breaking after they get it. I know I would have loved to buy mine from you with stage 2 heads already in there!:) You da' man!:D

Sounds like an oil pump. Rod knock doesn't (well, rarely if ever) skip. I still need to pop the case off the one I replaced off my engine- I'd like to see what's left of the gears.
