1998 track car with engine woes

Sounds like the engine spun a rod bearing. Car was part way into being made into a track car. Lots of work went into that: Partial strip, hard top, paint, brey krause roll bar, new coolant tank, deep sump, wheel spacers, lug adapters, three sets of wheels, Momo Mod 7 wheel. Just buy an engine or fix one in car and enjoy. Car does drive.

Original suspension is on car. I can see about getting a rebuilt set of pss9s for extra cost. Car has original suspension. Chassis has about 190k.
