Fitment seems average. In "normal" shoes, I wear a size 14, and the size 14 Titans fit perfectly.

Apart from a pair of Converse All-Stars that I bought a few years ago just for lounging about, the Titan is the only shoe I've owned for at least the past 6 or 7 years. I didn't do a lot of comparison shopping, just happened to get lucky. It's hard to find shoes in my size, and the Titan was one of the few that a particular boot store happened to have in stock. I'm on my third pair now.

Suck each other's dick and call it a day.

Now, a question for those with 99-00 motors. Is there a particular way to remove that lower gear-like thing that goes in front of the front main seal? It did not seem to come out the same way the one in my 95 motor did.

for the timing belt?????????


On another note... ******* chevy 2.2s are easy as cake to rip into. 4 hours and the head was off. That includes me having to drive back home to take a **** mid wrench.... and it's a 100 degrees out.

The head gasket is destroyed. So much so, that I'm excited to see what the new head gasket looks like so I can see wtf the old is supposed to look like.

Over all a nice break from the miata. Although the rest of the weekend will be dedicated to the miata. Won't be putting the S10 back together until I get money for the parts from the owner.

4 hours? That's quick? I can have a Miata head off in under an hour, while doing other **** at the same time.

Yea me too A maita is about as easy as it gets. And I'm sure you have done it plenty of times.

I'll rephrase, easier than I thought. This was my first time doing a 2.2L. Also I'm working out of a storage unit, and to get to my tool box I have to push the S10 forward since it sits up next to my miata.

Here let me show you how much bigger my **** is than yours.

I guess for a first time on an engine, that is good. Never touched a 2.2, so I have no idea.

It has pushrods lul

And the fuel system is designed horribly. They looped the lines around the intake. It's just a mess. But I thought it was going to be worse.

I miss my Prelude. H22 is a beast for being a 4 cylinder. I surprised a lot of people with that car.

Mine had something like 235k on the original engine. I killed it by being a dumb **** and missed a shift, went from 3 to 2 instead of up to 4. Redline in 3rd to 2nd and drop the clutch... killed. If it wasn't for that it would probably still be going strong at close to 300k. Everything else on/in the car worked tip top. Got a mad tyte JDM engine for it and drove it another 30-40k then sold it to some 16 year old kid, who probably killed it again.
