Noisey bottom end
« on: 16:41, Sun 17 March 2013 »
hi all,  my bottom end is becoming more and more noisey...    not very mechanically minded with r5's.   its a 1987 r5 turbo so a phase 2,    what are my options?

A known good bottom end shouldn't be that difficult to find. With a couple of mates and a few beer tokens you could have it swapped out over the weekend.

Keep the noisy engine (if you have the room) and just strip down and rebuild over a longer period of time.
