Can you tell me the name of the company that built your first engine? I am soon to order an engine for my GTS (assuming seafoam cannot clean the suspected carbon in the rear bank). I am keeping this car as close to factory with the exception of the cold air intake.

Hey, I am soon to buy a remanu. Engine for my 03' GTS. I do not want to tune this car because there really isn't anyone in my area capable of doing this. You recommend doing anything special that might add to the longevity of this engine? Any particular company that does good work with a good warranty? Right now I am look at Engines and Transmissions of America. Their price is not bad but, their warranty could provide more time.

It runs, but it's bizarre. Sometimes it runs great and other times it runs like ass and wants to stall but, if you give it gas it will staying running. The compression test shows the rear bank pressures are at threshold for two of the three cylinders and slightly below the third (145 psi). My pre cats were clogged due to burning oil from. A bad PCV valve. My buddies dad who is a master mechanic believes it's massive carbon on the valves. The rear pre cat was pasted clogged to the point you could only see light come through a few holes in the honeycomb. I am going to try to pour seafoam in the intake and see if that clears it up, but I don't think it's going to work. My thought is if it was bent/burnt valves then it was run like ass all the time. The only other thing it could be is a cracked head but, I don't know if it would like good sometimes and not other with that.
