ditto. I've never done much engine work, either. I have replaced the rod bearings on a Porsche 944, but someone basically held my hand. I'm going to be replacing my cams and rockers on the Elise, so I'm interested to find out what you find out.I have purchased a holed 2zz from a Celica. What is the best manual to use to guide me through the tear down? I'll probably be asking a lot of questions here too since I really don't know jack. :shrug: It is never too late to learn right?
