          the noise sounds like its in the head. sounds like a bad lifter or something.

          as long as it passes smog, i don't really care. the 9:1 pistons don't really work for what i want to do anyway. i'll just keep running it on the 75 till it blows and until it does, just keep working on the chassis and getting it set up the way i want it.

          as for 12" wheels, I'm not sure if you're referring to diameter or width. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img]

          Either way though, not a chance. Assuming that either would actually fit, 12" diameter would make my gearing ridiculous and they don't make sticky radials that size, and 12" width would just look retarded and definitely NOT fall into the category of stock looking.

              i'll try to get some new pics up this weekend.

              as for fixing the oil leak, the threads that are stripped are in the timing cover, which is pukiing oil anyways. so when i go to the junkyard, i'm just gonna pick up a new timing cover and put that in. im also gonna replace the valve cover with an unpolished nasty looking one. the pretty polished valve cover is a little too bling for my stock sleeper look.

                would you PM me before you put that polished cover up for sale? it would go nice on my show car.
