The engine is making unhappy noises. I wish I knew that before putting it in two weeks ago. It has, at low idle, a #3 rod knock, but it comes and goes, and disappears above about 2000 RPM. Oil pressure is great. My question is: what should I do about it? I think it is too far gone to drive it, and I don't want to pull the engine back out. Should I pull the oil pan and replace all the rod bearings, and should I replace the mains too? Also, what should I replace them with, stock or undersize?

Other than that, it drives great, and is even quite peppy with the automatic!

It has 30 PSI compression on 2&4, but 120 on

1&3. And you still need to come pick up all your

2002 parts this weekend. I am cleaning the

garage to get the Porsche inside!
