I had the title inspired by Alfa Romeo's "Cuore Sportivo", because a 155 drove by just as I was cracking my head for the title. It means, replacement heart, if you were just to wonder.
Anyway, the Silver Banana had been having heart problems since last year and it was just financially unfeasible to do anything at then until things eventually got worst and its now failing on me. Sadly, the SOHC 4G63 in the Silver Banana is a faithful and strong workhorse that lugged me to and through many places and faces that its sad replacing it.
But on the other hand, change, like death is just imminent and inevitable and I guess I'll just have to embrace it for what it is. My Silver Steed will no longer be the same once the transplant is complete, but like every change, I can only hope for the better and hope all's well.
If you're wondering, initially I planned on dumping a 4G63 DOHC "kosong" into Silver's bay. Targets and aims for this little project will be durability, efficiency (in hopes of fuel conservation - I know y'all need more, so I'm saving up :P) and improved driveability.
I'm hoping to hit at least 2 out of 3 of these targets. Wish me luck!
