Purposely brought a high mileage car to of course make the "project" my own. Though before undergoing any engine modification and anything like that, rebuilding my engine is an option that I'm considering. As the engine just sits shy of 145k miles, it look like its been maintained though not to the standard of what you I may want, so I can have it run like new. Anyone recommend any good garages that rebuild engines for fair prices, other than overcharging. Cheers!
