Very nice car. 1500 miles? Are those track miles? Honestly, I'd be more concerned about the CIS injection system than the motor itself. Sitting that long with today's fuels is not healthy for CIS. I'd get the CIS retuned/rebuilt/calibrated, have a thorough Leak Down Test performed and then go from there.

Id take the total 51000 miles with a grain of salt, remember this is a ROW car and the speedo has been changed out..

He had a top end done 1500 miles ago!

There's nothing wrong with this car. Don't plant the seed he needs to rebuild! Geezus!

Oh, Im not saying be needs a rebuild in any way, Im just pointing out the fact that its very likely the car has more miles, he wanted to tighten it up alittle with shocks and bushings, i might also check the dates on the tires because if there over ten years old id replace. The OP has received much good info from all here, have the car serviced check the head studs, adjust the valves, how long has the brake fluid been in there, these are the kinds things id be concerned with..

On the subject of tires more like 5 years not 10. The car Paul Walker died in had 9 year old tires. That ended up being the actual cause.

Euro Motorworks did the PPI on my car. By far the most comprehensive PPI I have ever had performed. They were very polite, friendly, informative.

While we are at this topic, can some one please help explain the differences between the following repairs and what actually needs done in each?

Sealing the engine and does the engine case needs to be split open)?Is it a big deal if the case was split opened?
Top end vs bottom end rebuild?
Thanks

Terry has car now. Dropped it off last night. Kinda scared what all he is going to find. They have a very extremely high standard for maintenance. I hope my car stacks up.

Most guys on here are against splitting the case if oil pressure is good.

I believe it comes down to difficulty of finding quality parts and I have read some articles that hint of the risk/difficulty of splitting case without damaging things.

Top end vs bottom end rebuild is kinda a hot subject now.. I mean I'd love to get away with just doing the top end on my car or even pull the heads and just overhaul the valve guides rockers ect.

If the parting seam between the case halves isn't leaking then no need to split the case to "seal" the engine, except nose seal on pulley end of crank but there are ways around that.

top end - from the the case out, eg. rings, valve job, check guides, etc

bottom end - crank ,main, rod bearings

Both although I've yet to find a mechanic willing to just do the top. I'll hear back from the current shop tomorrow. Fingers crossed..
