2002 SL1
Default Re: 1996SL11.9L's 2002 SL1

I'm taking some stuff off the wreck and give my the rest to a friend of mine to help his clapped out 96. He wants the car knowing its a Sl1 instead of a SL2 like his. I'm getting 250 and taking the rotors and new starter and the speakers. He gets the starter out of my 02 so he won't be without one.

He knows about the head. He's part of the circle of friends that cut the intake valves and helped drill oil return holes in the spare 98 engine. Since I got a 02 now I'll need to come up with another head to mod. I guess the 98 bottom end is still usable. I may need to do something with the knock sensor on the 98 block don't remember.

This engine feels strong. Has zero active knock retard. And hopefully zero or maybe minimal oil consumption. Something in my head says the the 02 May have got the oil drain back holes in the Pistons. Unless it's just wishful thinking......
