thanks 95na, I can't believe I didn't remember posting that in a different section! I posted that and almost immediately forgot about the post. I'm hoping to keep all of my posts inside this thread so that we don't run into this problem again.
On a side note - I just got off the phone with compcams and really enjoyed talking with the person I got ahold of. He was very helpful and explained that all they needed would be a *detailed* description of the application and they could come up with some suggestions ranging from mild to wild. This car will not be a daily driver so I will be putting a slightly wild cam in it. By the way, what do you guys suggest for a pulley size in this application. I will need to know what psi to expect so that compcams can design around the amount of boost I will be running.
Here are the images I promised you. Rest assured this engine will be put back together in a clean environment.
the state of the spark plugs (ms paint skillz)
It looks like I may have a buddy
6-4-2 in that order
Lots of carbon buildup on exhaust manifold
Oil Galley, I don't think it looks toooo bad.
5-3-1, a pretty good view of the rust
The worst cylinder
Both heads off
Thanks again for the help guys
