    Anything is repairable, just depends on how bad it is and how bad you want to repair it.

    Ill get the pics up as soon as i can get my gf here so i can use her pic phone. The mechanic took off the oil cooler for a closer look and said it was part of the block that had broken off. But, there's still about half of the threading left where the hollow metal tube screws in. So he said its looking like its repairable! There's still hope!

    Finally got my car back today!! My mechanic was able to machine the metal tube that screws into the block, he extended it by about 1/2 in and it worked! Only problem now is I have some wobbling after 45 mph. Hopefully a good balancing will fix that tomorrow.
