Thought i had a broken valve spring so i swapped them with hd springs from autotech. Had to rig up something to block the intake port so that we could push down on the spring and the valve would stay up. My cousin is credited with this "schwaben" knockoff hahaha. Got to the last valve retainer....and it shot past our heads at about 100 mph we searched forever with flashlights on our hands and knees. Were never gonna find it so now im hunting for a local valve retainer to me. Once i find one ill be continuing to put her back together and praying it doesnt tap anymore. It didnt sound good before. I just want to drive my car i miss it IMG_20170625_005733.jpgIMG_20170722_164329.jpgIMG_20170722_181639.jpgIMG_20170722_181740.jpgIMG_20170722_181802.jpgIMG_20170722_184520.jpg

Start was a fail. Knock didnt go away at all. It actually got very worse. Ended up getting a motor from a part out. Took me 4.5 hours to get the motor stripped down, to get my motor stripped down, and block removed from car. Now im working on cleaning the head and block prepping them both for all my good parts. Will update when i get another chunk done IMG_20170813_170728.jpgIMG_20170813_184355.jpgIMG_20170813_184406.jpgIMG_20170814_165236.jpg123_1.jpgIMG_20170814_165248.jpgIMG_20170813_141325.jpg

IMG_20170821_165245.jpg blocks cleaned up and painted. And also back in the car. I ordered a fel pro head gasket and a set of fel pro head bolts and the bolts were wrong. I assume i by luck of draw got a mess up, but its just my luck i end up with the bad bolts. Heres a pic of the weird bolt next to one of my old, correct spec, bolt. And a close up of the head of the wrong bolt. Its a total different style IMG_20170821_191216.jpgIMG_20170821_182400.jpg

I went with autotech valve springs to compliment my techtonics 276 cams. I took it to redline a fee times since and it loves it! I keep getting a p1136 lean code and cant figure out why. Only thing i havnt replaced was my 02 sensor cause it has to be working still. The car runs great i dont know what to do now. Swapped out a 4bar fpr. Changed the coolant temp sensor also. Tried to get a tune and aptuning said its the same file i have already they dont change the file for cams cause my maf and 02 should regulate my air fuel ratios
