Rebuilding the engine? What all does that involve? I thought a lot of the internals weren't availble...like rings and bearings.

In clarity I had false diagnosed my last engines check engine light and swapped a used one in that unlucky has a sound rod bearing I've been told. So swapped back in my old engine and got some extras done.

She's already done lol

Sadly couldn't fit headers with an automatic in the tunnel so if someone has a manual might be a possibility. Did delete the 🐈 and installed O2 sensor spacers so far no check engine light but my thermostat is stuck closed so having some overheating issues.
