History
I bought this car of craigslist for a grand, it had the oh so crappy oil pump nut problem and the previous owner kept driving it so the original M50 was gone. My first plane was to rebuild the 2.5 but it was to far gone so I went down to Tampa and got a short block it was supposedly a M50 2.5 but it turned out to be a M52 2.8 so hay cool. I went through that engine and rebuilt it and added some other stuff to it like a lighter flywheel and a set of ebay headers (so far not a bad deal, will update) This car is a work in progress and look forward to posting all the things I do to it
