It does suck but it could be worse lol could have been a v6 or 8 and would have to do double the work, plus 2.3s are stupid ease to time and hey are clearance motors so don't have to worry about piston to valve contact I think my buddy and I can do it in about 4hrs or less if all goes well keeping my fingers crossed I'll probably make a how to thread about it

makes me wish I lived up there...would have gladly paid you and/or your buddy $500+ parts instead of the $1000+ parts we paid for the ex's HG at the shop.

Yeah I really don't want to have to take the head in after putting it all back together cuz that means Id have to wait to get it running again and would have to either drive the gfs geo tracker or f350 lol
