Engine Restoration 95 Dodge Stealth

Hi!

I have a buddy who got a 95 stealth twin turbo (ie Mitsubishi 3000 GT) and he wants to restore it. It was in his back yard for 6 months and when we opened the hood to put in the battery, we discovered a family of rats staring straight at us. Anyhow, the car smells like shit and we don't know what electrical has been chewed up. We would like a rputable shop that can service this car:

Clean out the engine and rats
restore seals as required
polish parts for show quality
tune up the engine as neccesary.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Ive got a Stealth myself so I should warn you that your friend will be spending shit loads of cash to restore his car. If you get a dealer to tune it up, expect the bill to run to a minimum of 1500$ to 2000$. I wish you guys well but be prepared for a massive bill.

You might want take out the car battery, get an industrial power washer and just spray the engine bay.. and clean it with a lot of soap and water.

Since you are going to restore it anyways.. and rats can carry a multitude of diseases, which you really don't want to get. Clean.. then evaluate.

I recommend going to GT Racing in Surrey. Family-owned shop that is capable of servicing the 3S platform. Google for their website and you can call John for price quotes.

Good ideas all!. Will the electrical wiring get affected if I spray down the bay?

That's why remove the battery first.. at this stage you don't know if any wire harness shorts anyways.
