About 600 miles into the trip we hit Salem OR and said goodbye to my rod bearing.................... :frantics:  :frantics:  :frantics:

 

the knock was so bad we decided it was best to flat bed the car the 30 miles to Canby then risk doing anymore damage to the crank...........

oil pan cleaned up, looked good and didnt have any big metal chucks in it or the filter.  Rag10 cut open the filter to get a real good idea of how much damage was done before we went any further, he advised it looked good and to go ahead.

we got my water temp in the dash all fixed and hooked up, never moved pass the E the whole way home.  Also got my oil pressure gauge hooked up, reads 30 at idle and 60 when you are driving  :thumbup:  :thumbup:  :thumbup:   kept my eyes on these the whole way home to make sure we didnt have any issues..

 

Made the trip home without any issues, car drove better then it ever has.  Felt strong and had a great drive home.

 

Shout out to Rag10 for getting my car fixed, without him i would have been FUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

We also won the Hard Luck award for all our troubles  :P

got this shifter plate a while back, figured it was time to clean it up.  Hit it with the sandblaster, then hammered out all the little dings and got a couple coats of primer on it.  Looking good so far, hit it with some black next week.

Sweet SE-R! I had a '93 that looked just like that. Fun little car, but way more fun when you throw in a T-28 turbo out of a GTI-R! Some initial upgrades you could do pretty easily is to swap out the front brakes and radiator with those from a Nissan NX2000.
