New Sky owner in Ohio

I just purchased a 2008 sky 2.4 with a mallet supercharger strapped to the front. It’s got 107k on the body and 25k on the motor, I was told the head gasket blew. So far so good, I’m in Ohio so it will be going up for the winter fairly soon.

Welcome. I'd suggest when repairing that head gasket that you put in some ARP head studs for a little extra insurance against it happening again. If it has stock head bolts in it, they have to be replaced anyway (one us only) and the ARPs run about what two sets of stock bolts would run.

Too much to list here. See my Garage for details.

Love the car! You are kind of going for the same look I'm going for. I love these cars in mostly black! You should look into getting a black hardtop for it. It would really finish out the look! Could you also post pics of your engine bay? I bet it looks awesome as all get-out!

Here's a couple pics of my car!
