And the saga continues. After the rat poop predicament of Part 1 and and the Grave Digger dilemma of Part 2, there's only one thing left to do; put her back together and take her for a test drive.

Done.

And then we test drove it. And the engine detonated just as it did before we started. In other words, we fixed nothing.

Next attempt at fixing it will come later this week. But we're putting down the wrenches and cracking open the Vette's ECU. Stay tuned.
