    How come you have kept the setup if it has been so bad? Is there no way to strip it down and do a different build? Or maybe swap the engine? Your viewpoint on it definitely has me worried. I know something could go wrong at any time. I will still have the stock PCM that came with the car if I need it. I suppose if this all fails, I will just put the old parts back in the engine, or swap it with a junkyard engine. :/

    I don't have the stock cam anymore and I would have to buy new gaskets and everything all over again. I offered all my parts for free to anyone that wanted to put it back stock a few years ago. Btw I don't have a real garage to do it anymore either.

    So I can't get the lower intake to budge. I took all the bolts off except the threads that the fuel rail bolts down to. The threads look like they have a torx shape end. Do I have to remove these in order to get the intake out, or is the lower intake just a bear to get loose?

    Also, these are the bolts that came out of the lower intake. The ones on the other side looked the same way. The one in front was covered in oil, the two in the center were gunked to hell, and the one in back was normal.
    Do they usually look like this, or did something go wrong deeper in the engine?

    Thanks for the info guys, I totally missed those. I went out and removed them, but I still can't remove the intake. I will probably try hitting it with a rubber mallet to see if that helps.

    Whoops, looks like I missed a bolt in the way back. Intake is loose now, but it looks like it has a hose connecting it to the tensioner. I removed all the bolts from the tensioner, but that is being more stubborn than the intake was. I can't get it to move, even with the mallet.
