    Very cool build! What kind of heads are running on this thing, and what compression are you going for?

    Fox 4cly need to be installed but I can't get the shocks off Lol probably need a new impact.

    Worked on the motor again.

    Heads up for anyone interested in putting 3v head on their car. Get the heads drug for a 2v/4v and set them up like this.

    After you have lubed up the threads, put the head on and drop in the studs. Mine is an allen key and used that to put them into the block. Then started tighten them all down by the nut.

    Also got my oil pan in

    Still working on this thing.
    Truck is getting head studs, after that I can tear down this car a little bit. Going to be doing 4.10 gears and messing with the trans (super J-mod, cooler, and massive stall)

    Also got another engine for the '96 that needs to go in.

    I haven't done much with this project sadly I might sell the car aside from a fuel system and tune the motor is mostly ready to go in ..... My white car has had A LOT of progress because I have a huge sentimental value towards it. The silver car is eh.
