My egine is the best, : ner ner ni ner ner.

Only kidding folks. For those who've been following my engine woes I though I'd let you know exactly what is happening.

This morning I got my rig back from the engineer (the guy that originally built my worked 1.3) with some sad news.

compression test:
#1 - 100psi
#2 - 98psi
#3 - 100psi
#4 - 90psi

oil pressure at 3000rpm - 38psi

what does all this mean? My engine is FUBAR (f'd up beyond all recognition)

So, I limped the old girl home and jumped right on the phone. Here's what's going to happen in the next 4 weeks.

Engine - 1.6 Vitara engine (carbed for now as I can not be bother piss farting around with the efi and exhaust and all that ****e)

I have found an good engine that has low km's on it that is only going to set me back $950 Australian, Mounting mods $350 Australian and Electric Fuel pump $90 Australian (sorry todd, you should have let me get the price for you dude).

So, for about $1300 Australian I'm back on the road in a rig that will haul some serious ass. Well I hope it will.

I do have one question after all of this though folks. I was told by one person that the 1.6 will need engine mount mods and mods to the t-case, but I was told by the engine supplier that it will bolt straight up. Is there a different engine other than the vitara engine that bolts straight up without modification?

Thanks dudes and I'll be sure to do a detailed write up of this mod which will get posted to the website when jasen comes back onine.

I would also like to thank all of you who have given advice and helped me solve the many problems that I've had with my zook. Without you the thing would never be running *LOL*.
