Hadn't been on here for so long that I forgot my login....

anyways, it seems that the swap is not the cause of the "on while in reverse" issue. Good to know about this little quirk.

Car still runs great with 190k on the chassis, and we swapped in the engine (with 60k miles) at 127k. Grimmspeed thermostat failed shortly after I installed it and I'm back to a stock thermostat. Have been running Shell Rotella T-6 5w40 for the last 30k or so and the car only consumes 1/2 qt between oil changes (4,500-5,000k intervals). Need to replace door window seals and a few little minor things but mechanically it is sound.
