Went to fix a toe issue ive had on the right steer for years now. Tool the wheel off to find my tie rod end was bent causjng the toe out issue. So i ordered one up at a local parts store. Picked it up and went to install it yesterday. Well only to find out it was about an inch to short.....call back and find out its for a flatbody. No big deal right? Well find out no one local carries widebody tie rods. So i got o e off feebay. Just waiting for it to come in the mail. Also have to remote the TEC 2 again. Then put an exhuast on the car. Ive been running it with a downpipe only for 2years. After them 2 things it should be ready for ocmd

Well some much for having it running...lol.  when i had the valve cover off i was looking at the cam gear and had noticed the timming chain rubbing the timing cover. Not good. Went to the manual and found that when i built it 6yrs ago i put the timing chain gear on the crank backwards. Also put the oil pump gear on backwards. Had the pull the timing cover

I bought a car that the previous owner put the cam sprocket on backwards and it chewed up the aluminium in the head/valvecover.  Gotta wonder where all that metal went.  The oil cooler or the main bearings.

I was wondering the same thing. But since building it i have not put over 1000 miles on in between oil changes. I change it year just because. Doesnt matter if i drove it 1000 miles or 10. I still change it every spring. Car made 500hp to the wheels with it that way

I just remembered.  When I took the pan off, the oil pickup screen was full of small aluminium shavings.
