    Anyone else have a new found sense of "get shit done so you can stunt in the summertime" feeling inside?

        Sounds like there will be a lot more trouble coming. PTSD saga.

                  Turbo? Any experience with a turbo S50 or should I stick to the M50 for the lower compression ratio? I'll admit a turbo M50 is tempting just because they are far cheaper over an S50 and I could use the resources sooner to turbo. Also, anyone know a good tuning shop?

                    Dude, that's terrible. He has insurance?

                      :(

                      Pics or GTFO.

                      Just kidding. Is it salvagable?

                          No personal experience, although your logic is quite solid ;) I would rather spend the money from buying an S50 and build a turbo M50.

                            Well, that still sucks. Good luck with insurance!

                              So today AAA325iS and myself decided it was finally time to change the timing belt on his car. After a long sought out effort by both of us to dodge this bullet we dove in head first at about 11:30. Around 3pm we had everything out, off the motor. And we went a little further than expected. Water Pump, Thermostat, Timing Belt, All coolant hoses, Intake Manifold, Coolant Reservoir, and some other loose things.....All that's the new stuff going on. Plus we sandblasted a bunch of the smaller brackets. And in all I only managed to break 2 small plastic clips. lol. Anyways that's beside the point. We managed to get the new timing belt and water pump installed and have decided to finish the evening there.

                              Seems with some determination and forethought you can get just about anything done on your car. Especially when you don't spend every 5 minutes writing about what new thing you managed to screw up, (right 5Toes)? Some people just need more time than others to plan out there adventure. For me and AAA we just like wrenching.

                                Good for you guys! I need to help my buddy do a timing belt on his 2.7i...it's never had one done and he's put 100k on it. I'd be SO scared.
