Ok..here the deal

Bought performance parts, was going further than needed with cam bearings. Made a mistake killed a piston and later to find out the crank as well.

This morning at 8:30am got a motor from a junkyard, and also roamed the JY. 16 hours later. started the car with all my performance parts on/in the new motor. Gosh..that cam sounds sweet as I remember from two days ago.
