LN IMSB
RMS
Clutch
Water Pump
Rear wheel bearing
Motor Mount
Regular Service

about $6k IIRC, I really don't want to add it up again, I might just sell the damned thing, since I won't get to drive it much until spring.

Pretty expensive year, and I believe I've got to do the AOS in the spring.

I think that I am the "Big spender" here so far as my DIY 3.6 rebuild costed me $ 20.917 That's is including used 3.2 engine, VAT, customs, new DIY engine cover, engine mount, and shipping to my country and some performance upgrades to go with it. See my thread on it here
