Hi all! Back again after a little hiatus from the Terc. As soon as I got it running, I ended up loaning it out to my daughters not so fortunate (wrecked his truck) boyfriend. Anyways, it's back now and still burns oil like a b&@#h! (I should have compression checked!) the seals are replaced and car runs great, but unless I can pull the pistons out from the bottom, I'm not opening it up again, just not worth it. My Regal gets 28mpg's and the Terc gets 30. So far oil treatment and heavier oil are the only mods she's gettin'. Maybe an engine swap is in it's future......
