Default I'm a freaking douche pickle.

So, I have a retarded story to tell you. I know you are going to make fun of me, but its cool. I figured i would do a new timing belt and water pump before my turbo. (i have unfortunately done the exhintake cam mod.) Anyways, I put everything back together, with my wife bitching at me and calling me every 10 minutes. I thought it was correct and i cranked up and nothing happened. ****, i forgot the coils, so i hook up those and fire it up again and i heard the loud *** pop. I thought i had the timing wrong, because thats what happened when i had it wrong last time. Accept this was louder. So i get super pissed, and tear everything back apart. look at the set up. Everything looks fine, my intake cam is in the correct hole as well as my exhaust cam. **** i think, that could have just been extra fuel, where i didn't have spark when i first crank it. Now i am putting it back together, and my car is still on base where i work on it. I didn't get a chance to finish it. Is there anything else that could have possibly cause that? Or was it probably just the extra fuel, and i flipped out over nothing.

First, stregnthen that pimp hand. I can get 30 hours a week in the shop now with little commentary. That is your goal, work your way up slowly.

I think you will start fine tomorrow. Just fuel from cranking without spark.

LOL **** pickle. Anyways, i had to put in new rear alignment bolts, that went ok, but i saw where one of my bushings for my sway bar endlink popped out. So i grabbed a gian *** washer and fixed it, but i loosened up my sway bar. When i tightened it back down, the studs from the subframe snapped..... 2 of them. I wasn't even using an impact or anything. Just a standard 3/8 drive ratchet. What should i do about that one, it is being held in with a top left and a bottom right bolt. I was gonna drill it out and put huge *** wheel lugs in there. Unless there is a better fix.

Oh yeah, the car started fine.... lesson learned, don't doubt your own work when youv'e done it a hundred times.

Yeah, torque on those is something like 10-12 ft/lbs or something crazy low.

Put on the big RB front bar, take off the rear, and call it soup. However, I highly recommend at least looking at the Torque Specs link on the m.net garage before you turn a wrench on the car. Even better is getting the proper year FSM.

That's why I recommend taking the rear off.

Damn...I was wondering the same thing the other day.

I wish someone would do a write-up and collect useful information like this somewhere it could easily be found by inquisitive minds later.
