im not redoing the bottom end, im just putting the head back on the top, the head is already set to time, the cam is actually built into the head on this car. i need to get my crank broke loose and put the new timing chain on and then tighten my head on so i need torque specs and tightening sequences,
mileage is almost 247k and im only the third owner i was doing about 144 mph and bent all six exhaust valves, pout a little ding into one or two of my pistons but no holes and the bottom end seems to be ok, im not cracking it open to find out tho just hoping its ok already put too much money into it thats why i gotta put it back together myself
