OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am BACK! My boys car is alive and driving, still have to tune it and get his stereo in but my focus is swapping back to the lexus. I rolled the motor back into wrenching position and am studying to see where I left it. I have a lot to get done but the SC just has to come back to life!
