"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Makes sense. The z3 will be a better summer car, and if you park it again for the winter by then hopefully you can get the subie fixed.
What's the availability of suitable replacement engines for the Subie? Since head gasket fix involves engine removal & reinstallation, maybe a lower mileage (or rebuilt) engine might be faster and cheaper. Could be that a rebuilder will take the engine coming out to discount the refurbed one going in.
There are a world of STI engines out there that have been pulled out of rolled subies. I see them around for a couple K. Get one, have it built, and swap, maybe? if the wagon isn't a rustbucket it could make an awesome sleeper
It takes a while to make a fair trade locally sourced sustainable organic hemp head gasket.
Did you get the center diff problem sorted out yet? Og's idea sounds pretty good. Last one I saw ate a tree, instead of rolling.
Ms Tam? Is it actually the head gasket?Rich in NC
Considering your e-mail, I was wondering why you didn't call the Zed the "Thunderbolt Grease Slapper".If you go for swapping the engine of the subie, try to get one that was actually pulled and is sold as a complete engine. When my brother was looking for some monster engine for his Scirocco he was advised to not buy an engine that was pulled together from parts but to get one that had actually run in a car for a while. Even if it was rebuilt in the interim. Something about the parts getting to know one another or something. It seemed a bit touchy-feely black art hokum to me, but he has way more miles on that engine than I ever got on my Jetta.
Why not share an electric car for the weekend?
