A year in the shop throwing stupid money @ something sounds very suspect. I have a customer truck here that in my spare time I have been working on for a year but I'm also financing a lot of the parts being bolted to the truck, I'm also not a shop. This is a reverse- diesel to v8 conversion, and the scope of the project has changed several times. The tdi's are incredibly simple engines. Over on the d90 board a guy on a trip from San Diego to Alaska overheated, blew his head gasket, and dissasembled the engine, had the head shaved, and put it back together in a friends drive way in a day and a half having never done the job before. It took them 2.5 hrs to have the engine in half.
