Re: Got ze Car Back

hahah, well its funny.

We are at the engine place, and were in the guys office. His phone rings, he picks up says some things, and boom hangs up. He responds... yea that guy has a 4.2 that just threw a rod... happens all the time... hope it won't happen with the 4.2 you have now... and my eyes got big and i look at the guy like he's nuts. I glance over, and my dad is like staring at him like crazy, and he quickly changes to say... doh im stupid i mean 3.8....

wtf.!... so the secret is... i ****en have no clue whats under my hood. U can't tell by anything on the outside, no casings or anything. My dad new i wanted a 4.2 in it. My instructions are to not drive over 60mph, change oil in 500 miles, then again at 1500 miles, then every 3000 miles.

So... I have no clue if its just another ol' 3.8, or if my dad sly-ly got a 4.2 behind my mom's back, or what. But the actual block is SHINEY aluminum (as most new engines), and the valve covers are a pearly shiney black. I just gotta clean everything else in there.

more than likely its a 3.8... and the guy was pulling my leg in the office, and i wouldn't expect a 4.2... but woudl be cool. but still the car runs 100% better, no mis-firing, great throttle response... just flawless, so overall im happy.... til my new car in a year.. which'll be a vert' gt or so

Re: Got ze Car Back

Well, considering if it is a 4.2...the stock tune will NOT work with it and you will end up damaging something unless this place thinks it is a tuning shop as well...it has to be a 3.8. It isn't like you can just pick and choose what to put in there and not worry about it. A 4.2 would require different parameters than a 3.8...therefore for them not to tell you would basically be guarantying themselves some repeat business.

If it is a 4.2...then you best get your *** to cody and get a tune for it or else it might could be short lived....and I would make that clear to the clueless that if it is not a stock engine, then the stock computer is not going to work with it.

Re: Got ze Car Back

The car just didnt drive itself back from the shop. Why did you leave the shop period without knowing exactly what they had done... I mean wtf.... that's how people get ripped off. You just don't take a car in to get a new engine and then pick it up and have to wonder what engine you got in it!!!!

Re: Got ze Car Back

umm ok this still makes no sense.

You just do not take a car in to a shop and say "Put whatever engine you want in it.... surprise me"

You or your dad said "Put x engine in car, do x amount of work"

So someone in your family knows what engine is in your car... and that person is your dad. So why not just go ask him right now which engine he put in your car?

Plus if the car runs like it did before then 1) someone tuned the 4.2 2) its got a stock engine in it

All of which your dad would/better know

Re: Got ze Car Back

it really wouldnt have made much difference anyway... unless you build the motor to take advantate its pretty much all about the same.

The one we had spec'ed out would have taken advantage of the displacement...and would have cost about $1k more total.
