Head is getting rebuilt now the cam I was looking at wasn't right. Guy didn't know what he was talking about.

Very hard to find stock cams. There is a complete high mile head on eBay I could buy for 350 and just use cams

should be able to get it together soon.

i had to end up buying a used head off ebay just for the cams. plus one of the journals got buggered up and i didnt want to take a chance. so i'm going to have to have this ebay head rebuilt and then i can put the car back together.

got a few goodies in the mail, ching chong meow long tube and downpipe and a big front mount h/e. and a new dual pass end plate.

i like it a lot as well.

its gutless compared to the hemi jeep but i'm hoping this bitch lasts a long time. the jeep went a lot of miles but i had to fix a lot of shit.

i also got a refund to my paypal for the cylinder head i bought, don't know what the fuck is going on now. the tracking # still says package will be here tomorrow.

I don't have any complaints about the power but I didn't have a hemi keep before hand. I've got 100k on mine with no problems yet.  I wanted a 4runner or a Tacoma but people wanted twice as much for more miles and older cars.

Clean those ports up some before you throw it on. Gasket match at least.

Yea I was going to gasket match it and call it good. It's amazing the power the engine makes with Suh tiny ports. Especially the exhaust. It's cartoonish small

Good. If you are doing something might as well make it better.

i worked on it yesterday. almost done. been kinda a pita but not too bad i guess. just kinda lame having to take so much shit off to time the motor.

had to take off the motor mount belt tensioner and front timing cover. i thought i had it timed right without taking off the cover and making sure on the crank sprocket... but its a good thing i did because it was a tooth off LOL....

i might try and finish it today. the only thing left thats a bitch is one of the exhaust bolts is stuck on around the resonator behind the cat. i got one off with wd40 and an impact, but the other one just wasted the nut so i'm just going to cut/grind it off.





this is my when i realized i had to take the cam sprocket off to get at that one fucked up retarded tiny headbolt.

Ditch that resonator, replace with small glasspack.
