So now I'm pretty annoyed, I'm not sure how the lemon law applies to a car of my age, even though it is still under warranty, but i haven't really had it for maybe a month out of the past 4. That or i want a brand new motor, and ecu.....
That really f'n sucks. Lemon Law doesn't apply being your vehicle is well beyond the time frame of a new vehicle.

Has anything been done tune wise to this engine since they installed the shortblock?

Speaking of engine almost time to do my timing belt and tensioner next month. Just got to get the parts from Pence and find a weekend.
