    Update: Was getting tuned on the Dyno at Edge and Alan noticed some odd numbers and let me know, turns out the car dumped a bunch of the oil out and was having issues. Took it home and had a buddy help do a compression test. Results: 3dd162e6d83c4887b6dae5dae17c2f59.jpeg
    So basically new motor is fucked due to whatever the hell I did wrong during break in or any combination of random shit.

    Now I have to figure out what the fuck I want to do... Have been thinking about parting out and buying a truck and then stealing my friends 240SX and building that instead. I'm extremely torn because I love this car and the amazing friends I have made because of it, but I am tired of dumping money into a car and getting screwed over and having to dump more money into the car that I wanted as a nice daily/weekend track car.

    Going to get it rebuilt again, since it is still able to be saved. I am going to have the builder break it in and then take it to get tuned as soon as it is ready.

    Change of plans, traded the car in for a 2009 Silverado 1500 with a fuckton of miles, but I'm quite enjoying the truck so far... Also got a 1996 240SX for free from my buddy will be creating a new build diary in some other part of the forums. Don't worry, I still love you guys :)

    It's unfortunate, I just really didn't trust the motor after all the shit that had happened. I posted the crappy stuff I had left over already. Some army kid bought it. Hopefully he got the warranty...

    Sometimes you just gotta cut your losses and move on.... Been there, I understand that.

    Hope you stick around!

    Yup, that's exactly what I did. It's pointless having an awesome car that I'm afraid to drive because I don't want it to blow up again and be even more useless. I'm loving the truck and even more excited for the 240sx I've picked up.

    Yeah you guys can't get rid of me that easily. I've already started a new build log [emoji6]
