That's quite a project. I bet in a little roadster that size, the LSJ can finally stretch her legs and hustle.

Why wood he need 2 coolant overflow tanks? He shouldvhave used Dexcool too. Second over flow tank on the fire wall is set too high. Looks good though. Probably runs better than it ever did.

He'd better get a few jars of this if he intends to keep his car out of the shop.

The name is very misleading I find. The first time I heard Ecotec, I thought ''oh no, it's an economy motor.''
