That 01 Protege with the rod knock that we replaced the engine in and got hosed with worse rod knock is running as of last night.

Today got it all totally put back together, owner is under it right now greasing up his rear sway bar bushings and tightening his e-brake.

Engine is healthy, no smoke, no rod knock, no leaks (that ive observed yet), and it seems like Im done with this one.

Im pretty happy about it, Im glad its done. Owner is a good friend of mine and it was killing him having it with problems.

Celica soon to come into garage and begin tearing down the engine to see the full extent of the damage.

:) w00t and stuff.
