You wouldn't believe how many blocks we trash because they were "stored" with moisture in them and the cylinders rusted beyond redemption!
(Oh yeah, don't forget to put the head plugs back in)

But chances are you'll never need it cause you have that other awesum ej22
I Hope you're right, when I got the second car I drove 200 miles to look at it and when we started it, it sounded horrible, really bad lifter ticking, so bad I wasn't sure it would make the 200 mile return trip home. The guy knocked a BIG chunck of $ off so I decided to give it a try. Went down the road aways and filled up, put in a bottle of STP oil treatment and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner, by the time I got 75 miles out it was running smooth and no ticking. I have since changed the oil (twice in 1000 miles), AT fluid etc. Seems to be running fine now, get good mpg, but since I already have the other motor that I know more of the history of and runs great I figure I might aswell keep it.....just in case.
