The spark plugs looked a little hot when I pulled them for the compression test.
Soooooooooooo I guess now I might as well build a solid motor.. I have my eye on a short block built by Graveyard Motorsports (yeah I just heard of them too) and they have a solid short block deal

They give you a bunch of options on the build like nitrated crankshaft, other stuff.. Looks like a good package all for $2800. Can you guys recommend anything else local to San Diego?
I am also in san diego and having the same problem. My car is currently at subie shop in oceanside recommended by crawford, im getting a compression test tomorrow morning.
