Hi, just have one question here, for the last year, i have had this horrible smell coming from my exhaust, along with blue/grey smoke, and the longer it sits at an idle, (not moving) the mre it blows out when you rev it up, the only thing I have noticed is a loss in coolant every once in a while, mabye once a month now, and there is no water in the oil, HELP!! Has anyone else had this prob? thanks

Nice coupe Shawn.
Basically, it sounds like time for an engine rebuild. How many miles?
If I recall, its the oil getting past the rings or time for a valve job....so might as well do the rebuild, if you can do it yourself.

(now, I went to the dealer and asked the svc mgr if I needed to do anything, an he asked me if I lost any power, or was it running bad, or anything else along those lines. I responded, no, and he said, hell, DON'T worry about it. It is built to last.)

Banel is working on a GB for engine rebuild kit for $800

Hey guys, whats up!
Thanx for all the great replies!
Well, first of all, the performance is great still! I have recently checked the compression and all 6 cylynders read around 10 psi difference, so thats good. My car has about 180k on the engine now, mabye more considering I have no odometer, (quit working about a year ago.) :( The Rims are 18" ADR's and I forget the model.. sorry. The ride height's consisting of 2" drop w/ Eibach Pro's and shocks are Koni adjustables, I did something dumb, I didn't like how high it sat so I heated the rear springs (professionially) and heated one front spring, to level the car out. and loosened the ride on the Koni's for better stability. I will get more pics up soon, currently working on the rest of my body kit. Latez :D
