Hey, what's up, everyone?

My name is Dylan. I'm 17, and last September I got my first car: a 1999 Saab 9-3 SE.

It's an automatic, (yeah yeah) with the Garrett turbo. (Looking for a TD-04 swap in the near future.)

I absolutely love the car, but unfortunately, while cruising on the highway, I got a little taste of what not changing the oil every 3k might be like.

Needless to say I wound up grinding through to the copper on the rod bearings. (As told by a nice brown luster in the oil.)

So as of right now the oil pan has been dropped, and me and my father confirmed that there's some play on the #2 bearing.

While waiting for the parts to come in to fix it all up, I've taken up a few side projects with her while she's in pieces in my garage. If you'd like to see pics, I should be uploading some to my own build thread later on. :)

Hope to see you guys around. :cool:
