  • Wish it weren't true, but years later I found out that my "lightly built" LS, wasn't so lightly built at all... Don't let the same thing happen to you. On the bright side she's going to rip now!

    What is Ecrew? When I had to uproot and move to Indiana, there was a car community called Bcrew (B for Bloomington, Indiana). These guys became my family. Instead of partying on the weekends, I was working on cars- and I loved it. Since starting youtube, I have started what I call Ecrew. It's not supposed to be some childish "Logang squad." It's a community where you get to take 10min out of your day and be involved in a build, but more importantly it's a family.

    Hey EH, nobody likes a whiner. 8 years after the fact realization, energy drinks did not prevent this fo-pah and the fact remains it’s water under the bridge. We all drop the ball. Don’t beat yourself up. At any rate, it’s too late to scream rape on this deal. Maybe it was honest mistake, maybe not. Only you know and there lies the rub. Now you know what to ask for and what to do. Repeated use of energy drinks over time causes health issues. It’s your body and your choice. Hate to see that body go to waste! What a waste too! 😳😲💖😊

    Don't fell bad, for many years, I never drove a care I did not rebuild from stem to stern... I was a Sportsmen Drag racer for over 15 years... Guess what, I never became clairvoyant... Anyone, no matter how experienced, can get screwed in a purchase, or most particularly on repairs... If I have to tear a car/truck down to check if repairs were done properly, then I might as well do them myself... An example would be an Automatic Transmission, you can short cut it, or give a complete tolerance checked rebuild... If the Transmission works right, the screwed customer never knows, that is likely not in time... But when I catch someone I do what I can in legal retribution, but they sure as hell do not get my business again...

    Why are you haters even here? She's just having fun working on her cars and hanging out with friends... She's not pretending to be a professional or trying to instruct others how to go through the process step by step and taking money from people. She is documenting this for our entertainment and learning as she goes. If you don't like it then why don't you go make your own videos and/or fuck off? It's always funny to see the haters' channels and see how lame their content is or how they don't have ANY content at all! They have no lives and do nothing of their own so they have to try and tear down others just to try and make themselves feel better... Such a shame. Keep doing what you're doing Emelia and don't ever let these idiots drag you down!

    Been reading comments 1 everybody's right no cam lube by by motor, 2 never ever reuse head bolts no matter the power,3 bet when you get it all together you forget to use break in oil and use regular oil bad idea 4 need to invest in a scope remove plugs look at head bolts, 5 just take it to a real mechanic.

    OK you are griping about the car you bought because you did not do your due diligence? Speaking of doing ones diligence you are going to reuse head bolts????? Don't care if they are ARP or not, cheap out thinking that someone didn't over torque them initially!!!!! Then lets address your cam....non stock you should have been able to recognize the way it ran and performed as stock or not! You have a long way to go before you know what you are doing and talking about, take some courses at a basic engineering level of theory so you can apply it to what you are doing, it will go a long way to you not sounding like a twat! not intended to offend but enlighten!

    Plan and simple. If your ignorant to believe what the previous own tells you without proof you deserve to get scammed.just remember the previous own can tell you there's a cam and provide a receipt for a aftermarket can does not mean it is in that motor. Low ball the fuck out of the seller and see what happenes.

    NOW I know why you plugged your pickup in later video..all the things I mentioned PLUS ..butcher job on top end work!!!...If you "juice" up the heads on an old motor..you are begging for trouble..that raises the compression and the old rings collapse...causing oil to get in the compression chamber..(ok for a qualifying motor..bad for daily driver) added to the big TB and NO CAM ASSEMBLY LUBE!!!.. you have made a grenade!!.. Bad mechanic to do top end like that..should have had complete "fresh up" LAZY WORK!! ..I can't even go into all the crappy work and "should have dones"...Find a good engine builder and LISTEN TO HIM!!

    If you are going to rebuild the motor for racing why would you reuse the head bolts or studs. Should of planed on replacing them in the first place. And replace the cam with a new one so you know what you are putting into your motor. Why would you take that chance.

    Complain about a 8 yr old wore out engine and it didnt have head bolts. 300 bucks. And the cam being an ls. If the motor was refreshed with a stock ls cam. You didnt spend lots of money on it. I agree document it. But 8 yrs of thrashing and a loose timing chain. Yep unsubscribe. Many better people in this world wouldnt of thrown it out on youtube and then complain about the rebuilt process. They would of stripped it and then to machine shop. Then put all new parts in it. That car deserves better than just a top end . God people these days.

A shop did the work for the guy who had it before you whos to say he didnt take his build motor buy a stock replace some parts to make it look legit n then lie to you. ITS NOT ANOTHER SHOPS RESPONSIBILITY ONCE IT LEAVES THE DOOR HONEY. My dad was a mechanic for 43 years on all different cars. Bmw benz rolls royce jaguar porche legitimate ford gt hes replaced rebuilt and replaced to stock. It never was his peoblem after the product left

    I don't know about anyone else, but unless the car comes with the original parts, to me, it is worth less than a fully original engine. I don't care what after-market parts you put on, even if you have receipts. I am always suspicious of engine mods and the work done to install them.
