My boy talked to the guy at the machine shop and they compaied a Kia crank to a Probe crank and the oil holes are differant so the rod bearings could be getting starved for oil. For his fix he is gong to try elongating the holes to help oil flow. It will probably be a while before he gets to it though, he's having to much fun with his new MX6. It was already running 13.2s when he bought it.

I am going to pick up my block from the machine shop Monday and drop off my head. When I get all the parts to assemble the short block I will start taking pics and posting progress. I will start a new thread since I am not building a stroker yet. I'm getting excited to get this thing back on the road.
