LOL... Revenge has ben had, unfortunatley it wasn't by me though. I had one with no brake lights slam on em infrone of me one rainy day when the road was slick, it didn't get a scratch, I thaught I was going to have to replace the bumper on my old truck. Of course no one will admit that the lights weren't working but I ain't gonna press the issue. Got blamed for the accident but it was wrote up so that it was due to road conditions, and no one was at fault.

Hope that motor comes together for you. I have heard that Super Six does good work as well, I didn't know that they had started on the Rangers though. I got to get over on the Super 6 forums and find a way to get in touch with Eric (Tom Yentzer's son that I went to school with) since I think he is out in Savannah for a few months working for Gulf Stream.

When I say they I was talking about the sprocket. I am used to the Saab turbo four cylinders that do not have keyways either. They have DOHC, so I apologize for the error in terminology.

You guys take this too serious lol. I dont know everything, there are guys on here that know more then I do. Take Bob, Griggs and even Nick as far as the ranger and Fords are concerned.

No apology needed for this remark... There are actuall two cams(duh) so you are right... So you are tellin me this could be a demolition assistance by slaab? J/K!!! The sprockets on the cams are supposed to be 89in lbs, i went 15 ft lbs thinking that wasn't tight enough, boy was I right!!! I guess with the crower springs and the ground cams, I should have gone tighter than that... Shoulda coulda woulda.... I will have new valves in a week or so.

Zach, Why do you want to see bent valves? I dont want to show you!!! Its bad enough I have them laying around, but come on man!!!

I just want to see the power numbers...and the results of burnouts (tire condition). I know if I had all that power I couldn't wait to retire some tires.
