Talk about bad news. I am sure he never wanted to hear that.Taboo said:Ouch... Nick, you have the worst luck ever. As I remeber, you said you think your oil pump seized (which would explain the stripped teeth on the t-belt). You should definitely take the oil pan and the front case off since it's most likely the rear balance shaft spun the bearing and possibly also ate the block. The front case will most likely be damaged as well, so you'll need to replace the complete oil pump assembly (front case + oil pump gears + oil pump cover). When you're at it, yank the front shaft out as well and reverse the bearings so they cover the oil holes and eliminate both shafts. Don't worry about the block (if it's damaged by the balance shafts) and JB Weld the bearings to it. With the new oil pump assembly, used head, new t-belt, seals and gaskets, etc., you're looking at some 7-8 hundred bucks of investment.. I'll email you.
Na, Ill just get it started and sell it.NINJA7 said:

I think your best bet Nick is to buy a JDM engine and call it a day.
You are looking at more than $2500.00 to get the car functional again.
You might as well sell the car and start over dude...
Same problem. I found they don't have a 11mm. I thought that too, But 4g63 has 10mm.Whats up man, your in Sterling Hts too? This is what Im thinking happened:
Driving along, oil pump seized breaking off about 1 ft of timing belt teeth, the belt slipped on the crank and the pistons hit the valves. I don't have the head off yet because I cant find a damn 11mm allen hex head socket. But I will find out sooner or later.
