That sucks. I've said it time and again, pay attention to the oiling system on your SR20 more than anything else! It's the weakest part of the motor. Flush regularly, use proper oil/filter, be sure your oil pan isn't dented etc etc.akapaul said:
Sounds like Chris has had to do this before! I think Chris has the right idea.chriscar said:Since this is your primary transortation, my advice is to get a DE and prep it for boost upon installation. Get some Prothane motor mounts, and a good clutch and maybe a lightweight flwheel while you have it apart. Do you need a new clutch cable? Do it now if you do. Also, pull the throwout bearing shaft out, and lube it up.
This will also be a great time to do things like steering rack and shifter bushings, they're stupid cheap, and will be allot easier to do while the engine is out.
Since you have to drain the tranny anyway, order some Redline for it. Also, don't forget the typical tuneup parts. Oh, one more thing.... if you don't have them already, throw a set of UR pulleys on. Again, this is something easier to do with the engine out, plus all these mods will make the car more fun to drive until you boost it.
Good luck man,
