Waiting to make damn sure that I am going to have the time off work to go (and if I don't already, I will be putting in for leave........otherwise known as rolling the dice)

don't know? I'm still deciding whether or not I want to come off of the money. I have the turbos (although I'm going to be sending things out for thermal coating), but my compression test left me thinking I need to tear the motor down:

Run a leakdown check......much more accurate and
you can usually tell where a significant leak is comming from.

Be sure that you test at TDC. (#1 and #3 would have my concern also.)

paco, good luck with getting the car back up. +1 on being worried about 1 and 3.

And on a side note, I will probably be in VA around April or May next year for a couple of months (boat will be going to the shipyard), so as the time comes I will probably hit you up to find out when/where you guys get together

I'm very curious as I'm sure others are Zach. Pulling an engine out of a friends GTO this weekend sounds like it's going to be a busy weekend for us both. Please keep us posted. Your thread made me get under my car to checkout the condition of my turbos. I'm paranoid now;)

If Zach can advance a couple of rounds in last year's All-GTO Track Day elimination rounds with nothing more than a nub of a shifter, odds are good he'll keep the motor together...............or maybe not :sweat: :D Either way, a hell of an offer Thomas :turbonaug
