Just use a dry-cell battery in a box and track officials can't do crap. Plus all that free space under the hood is amazing.

I would have to think about what parts of the harness but I have to say a megasquirt powered back up generator would be an awesome project! I love the idea!! :D

I would assume, unless the shop has a supplier for harnesses, you are doing the leg work yourself. A DOHC ATX harnes won't be the easiest thing to find. Most ATX are SOHC. I think finding a running DOHC car is a better bet. Easier and less hassle than getting all these parts for a swap. But an auto ...

You don't need to change it but it is recommended. The SOHC PCM has less advanced timing. If you are keeping your ATX then it should work just fine.

Also if you are doing a complete DOHC Long block swap, you need a DOHC harness as well.

Has enough power to crank over our motors without issue. NOT recommended for winter use. Or just put the battery in the trunk and run a ...

Either that or the bolts on the tensioner weren't torqued properly and it eventually worked its way down with the pressure of the plunger against the pulley. They are known to fail though. Rip it apart first. Why guess about buying parts?

Also make sure you have proper tension on the belt. If it slips for a second then catches again, it may feel like a slight lurch.

regardless of your mods, you can run any cam you would like, but like mentioned above, you should look into upgrading your entire valve train to support the new cam. stock stuff in a SOHC is garbage.

not necessarily. once the car has momentum it will tend to move in a straight line easier than at take off. most times a shimmy is alignment related. or just really worn suspension parts. but if it happened after lowering the car i am betting on alignment.
