New Engine
Well as some of you may know last friday I blew a rod in my celi and it WAS sitting at the dealership until this thursday. Seems that I had a 60000 mile warranty and they replaced the whole short block for free, and man what a difference it made its like the car came back to life. Anyways just had to share the good news and props to Tejas Toyota in Houston for installing the engine very fast. thumbsup

what shot of nitrous were you using when you got the knocking noise? What octane gas?

Damn SoCal dealerships...they tell me if you have any modifications...my warranty is automatically voided even if the modification has nothing to do with the problem. Go Texas!!!!!!! Yeah the Vegas dealerships were cool too like that.


I get my kicks on EC.
