I found a great local machine shop. They ordered all the parts, rebuilt the head, bored the cylinders, cleaned all the parts, and it was $1400 all done. I put about $3K into the car total. It runs great.

There is no reason you can't reuse your crank or rods. The machine shop can go through all of that and order the right bearings as well.

For a '99 you need new conrod bolts as they are torque to yield and that won't come in your engine parts kit. There is a reference in my thread.

Default Re: 99 SL2 DOHC rebuild?

Haha I was wondering what that was about...anyway I brought my car to a muffler shop and verified my exhaust has no leaks. I am fairly confident my timing is correct...I had all of my exhaust valves replaced when I had the head work done, and Iím not sure if they needed to be ground or not, but would it be possible that my valves arenít seating completely and would that give me even low compression across all cylinders?
Could it be possible my rings havenít seated?
Could my cams be worn? My compression on the 3 good cylinders before the rebuild was approximately the same compression I have now post rebuild, but it definitely didnít have the rough idle like it does now. At this point Iím grasping at straws, I donít know what else to check.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
