Hey guys how is it going!? i'm Ryan and my 2001 spyder decided to have a bad timing and long story short im pretty sure i bent a valve. we are dropping the engine this weekend to check it out more. I will post pics and what not of anything that might be useful. I need help deciding what route to take for the new build. And this thread will be the start of my new build project!!! This is my baby and i wanted to save a little more before starting this project but hey she wants her upgrades now lol! I want a reliable build but that still can give me the holy crap i almost ____ my pants feeling! haha. Money is an issue as I work and go to school but I have a good wad of cash saved up and I just can't bare to look at her just sitting in my garage! To be honest im just torn what to do. This is my first swap or rebuild for what matter in this car but we have the knowledge and tools to do whatever. Me and my friend Brian have been waiting to crack at this project since I purchased the car!!! I have read all of Paul's and upspro post and been flaming all the forums and sites I can find. I'm pretty much a mrs fanatic, but this the first one I have owned to work on! My friend Brian has won muliple modding competitions and took state and top nationals in hs a few years back for auto. He now works at a local BMW. Time is important but we might just tread some new grounds so this will take time and i need more $$$! I will Post pics of her soon. she is pretty much stock and ill show yall my 66 mustang thats been my project since hs! Gotta appericate the muscle i love cars guys and need help with my new toy. anything helps but trolls. THANKS!
