Ok, finally had some time to start pulling this thing apart. It blew hard. I can put my arm in the drivers side of the block, and out the passenger side. I found a connecting rod jammed up by the steering rack and parts of crushed pistons on the subframe.

Thanks, I drove to CHarlotte to find a red one. I wanted white (like my M3 and Dually), but SUbies white is pearl and kinda ghey IMO. Black is too darn hot in GA, so red was my 3rd choice.

I love the car, its a riot.
