im not sure now..... It needed a new alternator for the longest time and usually I let it sit over winter time anyway... so I had the time today to put in a alternator... Recharged ran perfect let it idle... took it out for a spin... reved it to 6k and thats when it started to chatter really loud, hrrmm.... then it did it in low rpms... to the point to where it was constant..... Lets just say I had to push the car back home and it left a trail of oil the entire way... Its safe to say its blown.

Oh well, Just need to find a long block, Theres a friend of mine whos local who has a st185 long block hell sell me but Im not sure how much to offer him... its supposively has 50k on it and I know it was from a JDm clip...
