Well as of 3 weeks ago(today 4/30) I had my car diagnosed for it not running properly, and found out that before I bought it in August of 08, it had a cracked piston. This caused my turbo and intercooler to vibrate irregularly and clog. My new engine will be on its way soon, as well as a new turbo and intercooler, so she will be up and running in the next couple weeks. I'll keep yall informed.
A couple weeks turned into a a month, and a month turned into 3 months. AWESOME!!!
The Stroker Engine and ATS CT27 Turbo are ready to go and are being shipped from ATS Racing this coming monday(7/27).
Sadly, 6 months into the fixing of my car, it still is not done. We took it from the shop that had it, and had one of the tech's at my father's dealership take it to finish the work. The stroker would not crank at all, even while trying to turn it over manually, it did not budge.
Now that snow is coming around the bend, it looks as though I am not able to drive her this year. I have only put 300 miles on it before I had to store it last summer, and then it was in the shop this year. AWESOME!!!
After a couple weeks of the new mechanic having it and some major communication with ATS racing(who are awesome and have helped 100% from day 1 of getting in contact with them) we have finally found out what was wrong with it, and are getting the issue resolved. LOOKS LIKE I'LL HAVE MY CAR FOR THE MR2 SEASON! Ha still can't believe that I only have put 300 miles on it before the car went in for its fix. The anticipation is killing me!
Well I have had a financial situation come up and have to sell my baby. My cell phone is 406-980-0770 and my email is Krebs07@gmail.com if you are interested. I have it tentatively listed for sale at 15,000. But any reasonable offer, I will consider due to having to sell this ASAP.
