Default An update!

Ok, here's what I've been doing since my last update on the car. I got the damn motor TIMED cause it's freaking tricky to get it perfect as one gears might be off after you do a few revolutionary and back to TDC for those that have been through that and the timing belt has been put back on and properly tensioned.

Broken in the cams using conventional oils only as I read that Synthetic oil isn't recommended for breaking in engines. Just need to get a bottle of CD2 engine cleaner to add into the new oil and drive it for a few hundred miles then change it out for some Mobile 1 Syn and go from there and see if there's anymore metal shavings on the next oil change.

Here's a vid I did when I first crank her up:

Video clip has been modified to get that Cinema Film style using Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 10. It's quality is much better if you watch it on youtube itself with 360p or higher for HD Quality.

not bad. Looks clean!

what cams did you go with again?
are you going to cut the side of your valve cover to expose the cam gears for future adjustments?

Either a Skunk2 Pro Intake Mani or a Euro R Intake Mani portmatched to TB; still haven't decide which one to go with yet.

I have the Skunk2 Pro2 cams. And yes, I'll be getting the VC cut to exposed just the cam gears so I can adjust and see TDC w/o removing the damn VC ever again.
