I would not consider litigation worth the cost, but...

Re: Trying Something Different For Heat

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Licensed to Kill-
Restamping your replacement engine to match your title is a LOT different from stealing a car.
No evil intent and no defrauding of anyone, including a subsequent buyer....

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?
