Weird... the hood has the Chevy emblem, but the description says that the steering wheel has the Toyota symbol... make up your mind GM!

Oh and I love this part:

These vehicles are made by General Motors in the USA and exported to Japan for the Asian market and a few to OZ and New Zealand, basically because it is an amazing car in the US and with the extras they thought they would try and sell it in the east.

That's classic.... here in the states, everybody tries to turn their Chevy Cavalier into a Toyota Cavalier, while in Japan and Europe, they want their Toyota Cavalier to be a Chevy Cavalier..

Like I said before, building an engine like ours (2.2 or 2200) is a painstaking chore , since there is so few custom made parts. It's frustrating to me too, but that's what I like about doing this engine, it's the challenge.

Watch out for loosers who constantly yap about what a rotten car the Cavalier is, and how much greener the grass is on the other side of the fence.

Alot of these people drive J's and are members here. Others have purchased another car now, but like to hang around and brag about how much better their new car is.

I have to agree.

But anyways, ask if the water pump has ever been replaced.
