Yes, the mechanic should have taken the car back. From the sounds of it he seems like a real arrogant *****. The engine was a long block chevy 350 from Promar if I heard correctly. It led me to specualte that maybe Promar was at fault. To those who say the engine wasn't primed or that it was towed. The car was towed due to not having anything but open headers which are ilegal on the street. I believe the engine was runned out of the installers shop before it was flat bedded so that would rule out a dry start. The funny thing is the guy who dropped the engine in called my buddy back about a week later and agreed to replace the busted valvetrain parts for 400 bucks. The Midas guy keeps urging my friend to sue the installer but I think 400 bucks is better than the headache of court.
