    Long needed update. alternator swap did not fix the noise. dropped the pan. found this


    and this



    Oil starvation. did an oil change a week after i bought it, then at 3000 miles later only had a quart in it. #4 connecting rod didnt like that. I have ran it over 3000 miles after. everything else ran fine other than the rod knock at higher rpms. hoping it just needs a bearing replacement. crank pin is in spec. the picture below looks worse than it is. it is very smooth.

    Sure enough the rod bearings were bad, and after replacement the noise went away. Just installed my new ADDCO RSB to compliment my coilovers and the car handles extremely well. I havent had enough miles on the coilovers without the bar but the improvement over stock with the combo is amazing. Fitment is great, and for the $160 I spent it is well worth it.
