Always calculate first. It saves headaches in the long run. What size exactly are you planing on getting (width)?
And what size tires are on it now? The backspacing, I don't know what factory is, but if you can come up with that, I can help you there too.

Updates are very slim

I have been tracing down the fuel problem. I think I figured it out will post pictures later.

Im currently still working on removing the whole engine to rebuild it

Transmission was sold and the cash for it went to purchase the new transmission

99.9% positive my fuel problem is here with the injectors and fuel rail.
I am taking them to work tomorrow and gonna test them just for the heck of it.

Gonna try to find a new fuel rail and injectors when I get a rebuild kit for the engine around march 2010.


Partial oil leak on driver side. I think it was the original valve cover gasket





Injectors and rail

Good luck with those junk heads man... You'll need it..

P.S. When you buy new valve cover gaskets, spend a little more and buy the all blue rubber ones with the metal core. Felpro I think. They're worth every penny.. Re-usable too.
