Hmm. That was what I originally warned about. :(

Have you had the bodywork done yet? If not, speak to the insurance and explain the situation. The repair should be covered under the same claim. You need to get a proper assessment done of that area of the engine to be sure of all the damage.

Regarding the heat shield, that might not be anything. They crack quite easily. Getting a replacement return may be the problem if you have to get one from Nissan. That was a 'never ordered before' part when I tried to get one for the first S15. May be easier to take the original to somewhere that can make them up. Did this last time. However, I was lucky that a race team was in the unit next to the one doing the repairs...

That should definetly go under the same insurance claim.

But who knows what insurance companies think sometimes.
I hope they don't give you a hard time.

I thought you would have used up all your bad luck by now :(

Why would he want to sell it?

Just find a decent excorscist and you'll be alright :p

Seriously though.
I hope you won't sell it.
