Don't they have to adjust the valves for the new engine anyway? I would think they would have to do that.
I really, really, really wish I had the money to pay for all the stuff to be done now. But I don't - I'm broke as hell because I just quit a job that payed well but the owner and I were not and never will be on the same page. So, whilst I regret leaving good money, I am happier in the long run. My poor car will have to do without for now. Though I get what you mean, it's at 94k and needs that stuff done sooner rather than later.
I need a new clutch in around 5-6 months. Don't they have to take everything apart for that too?
