Say bye-bye to the rings in your two bad cylinders....the engine will likely run a while longer but oil consumption will start getting embarassing...*G*

I wouldn't buy a rebuilt engine unless the shop installed and fired it and warrantied the installation as well as the engine....

Personally, I'd suggest rebuilding your core at a reputable local shop....ask around at the car clubs and/or race track...they know who's good and who's not...

You'll do the install and possibly assembly but, in the long run, if you pay attention to detail, you'll have an engine and experience you can be proud of.....

If you get all your ducks in a row, the car shouldn't be down for more than a weekend...

Good luck!
