    You answered your own question.
    Google "build an all motor gsr" and see what you get.
    The forum is riddled with questions like this daily, and they are answered in the same consistant fashion. The basics are easily found, so once you have a build path for your n/a build and need some specifics we can come in handy. Other than that, nobody is gonna lay down engine basics 101 when it is easily available all over the net.

    Didn't see anything about GSR on the list but do you think this would be a good supplement? If not do you know any other dvds? I'm still reading the howstuffsworks article GOOD STUFF!

    I wouldn't be too concerned with learning GSR specific things right now. If I were you, I'd become familiar with an engine before anything. See if you can find yourself an engine to take apart and just look at it and try to put it back together. If you can't put it back together, look online for help. This is a common things with cars. Trust me, I've spent countless hours out in the shop trying to figure out what the hell went where, when the whole time the answer was somewhere on the internet.

    Thx, that's what I've been doing while reading the how stuff works article. When I read posts that have stuff I don't understand I google or wiki it now. Thx so much for the help guys so far I have a few basics down and getting into the more intermediate things just dreading learning about wiring and all that because just from the sounds of some people's questions seems complicated:eek:

    thx again
