i say put it up for sale now, stick a high price on it so if someone was interested, u'll be happy with the money. it may take a while to sell car too?

also brad/klod will agree with me when i say this... owning more than one car at a time does hurt you, with insurance and wear and tear :(. Once im back down to one car i do plan on buying a miata or something similar again for racing in 3-4yrs. i will never learn.lol

Just did mine. It is not easy the first time. I took a lot of extra time making sure the cams were in the correct position at TDC. I have the cam tool to rent for a six pack...
You can read the write up, but they do leave out some details...we should talk before you do it.
