    Um that's is prety damn awesome, what engine are you swapping ad into what car? My teacher in small engine repair is going to do a class demonstration on Valve Adjustment, on my Integra! He's certified ASE and is teaching the lawnmower engine class (thus small engine repair) for some extra money... He's cool as shit though. Good luck...

    That's pretty sweet. Our small gas engine teacher doesn't know anything about anything besides small gas engines.

    I could do that in my volk auto class but the two major reasons why I do not want to is because a, I would be without a car for 2-3 weeks (if it takes 2 10 hour days to do a swap then that means 2 hours a day x 10 days = 20 hrs) b, I have alot of retards in my class so I am going to do mine at my house.

    my teacher is letting me and friend that im buying the motor from skip lecture the day we do the swap so we can get it done in one day, and plus i wont have to buy any extras because my friend is selling me everything to make the swap work. so the most time consuming part will be getting my old motor out.

    take advangtage of that stuff if your high school offers classes like that, you'll very rarely be able to have acess to a shop and tools like that unless you get into the automotive field. learning mechanics and bodywork will save you an assload throughout your life.

    I'd like to go back to college to be an engine/transmission specialist.

    Working at a Ford garage will surely net you tons of business. :lol:
