They definitely make cams for SOHC cars.

Newest problem. Previous owner got lazy and plumbed the intercooler upside down presumably because it requires less tubing. Now the oem lights I have don't fit because the tubing goes through the same place. If anyone wants a giant intercooler I would trade for a smaller one.

Man has this taken longer than I ever thought! The engine is FINALLY in the car. Now is when I get bit by the fact I didn't label bags of nuts and bolts.

I spent most of today cutting and grinding to get the bumper bar on. Soon the intercooler will be plumbed correctly and fit with the bumper. I mocked up the front to see what it'll look like, and now I'm starting to get excited again! All of the white parts are dirty from my hands, sorry.

this is where I regret not taking better care to document where things went and specifically in what order. I took pictures while disassembling and I was just looking through them. I have no Idea what I was trying to photograph in most of them. They look like a drunk monkey stole a camera.

I may have made a HUGE mistake. I need some help to figure out if I did or not. the people that honed the cylinder walls of my new block removed the two metal cylinders on each side that slide into the head. I totally spaced putting them back in and put the heads on and the engine in car. do they need to be there? or do I need to pull the heads off and put them in? I would really rather not, but I will if I need to.

I wouldn't run without them. I feel like the head could be canted slightly which would cause all sorts of shit to be out of whack.

sounds like I have my work cut out for tomorrow! my goal is to loosen the heads and try and put those in without pulling the engine. sigh, i knew things were going too smoothly. Thanks FryphaX for the reply, it really helps to have someone else's opinion on stuff!

I cant believe I bought this Godforsaken hunk of metal in February! After a long and arduous journey to get the bastard road going, It's almost ready! All that's left is the stupid intercooler piping, and double checking some wiring. Fingers crossed it doesn't blow up!

It's really helped to have this forum for all my stupid questions that show how truly inexperienced I am.
