A New Re-Built Engine

Well, Marko and Paul from the buslab kicked some booty and stayed late to finish putting in our new motor. We finally drove away at around 8 p.m. and the bus drove like never before.

Before: Tough to put it into gear

Now: Easy to put in gear

Before: The engine screamed through the gears.

Now: We can barely hear it

Before: Clutch was sticky and a pain in the arse

Now: Smooth as silk

Basically, we don't have to sweat as much while driving this thing. I am happy and going to bed at the Brady's now. Very tired....Stanford tomorrow.

So after all was said and done, what did it cost to put in a new re-built engine????

I used to own a '71 VW Van so I'm just curious!
Happy trails boys!
