simple enough, if the cam is still in the head(or even if not I guess) hold a lobe with a big adjustable wrench while you break it loose

there are other mixtures, E85 is 85%...E70 is 70%, etc etc, any car though can run up to E10 with no mods...gives a bit of an octane boost and a decent cooling effect, both of which help prevent detonation...anyway, if you're interested, you can read up http://www.ethanolfacts.com a useful site that...

I think I'll stick with E85((85% Ethanol/15% Gasoline)which I can run because of MegaSquirt) it has plenty enough octane(105) for me and costs about the same as a gallon of 93 octane...also cools the engine better...presumably if you have a 1:1 FPR and upgrade a few lines, you could use E85 on a reg...

I know a CR in the 11:1 range is safe on pump gas, after all a lot of cars have compression that high and run on pump gas...add nitrous into the equation....well, I wouldn't do it myself, but I have a few friends running nitrous on 11:1ish compression and they haven't blown up yet...but most of them...

very true, so many neons in yards are base auto/4 doors, but I have found one 3.73 and my current 3.55(which I prefer for boost) in yards...I'm thinking of pulling another 3.55 and modifying it like this thread on a TD forum http://www.turbododge.com/forums/f4/f22/133986-8-8-ford-lsd-possible-copy-3...

He's right Acid, you shouldnt be posting if you arent going to add anything helpful to the post, posts that say things like "search" are worthless in my opinion...unless you answer the question and just remind them to search as far as the swap goes...dont forget, you'll need to swap crank pulleys as...

You're better off with the SRT4 turbofold...even if the car is not street legal, I doubt its because of the parts...I'd look into the reasons behind it before buying anything though if I were you

its not a weekend job by any means unless you have everything(and I do mean everything) to begin with...if you are missing even one part, it will most likely be a part the dealer has to order and it'll be three days, etc etc, and thats using SRT electronics...if you go standalone you might as well a...
