Since my recent goof up I have ordered my JDM engine and a Holeshot header! After further review of my budget I can also afford JWT s4 cams! Now, after you zip tie the timing chain to the cam sprockets and unbolt the sprockets, how in the hell do you keep the whole assembly from falling into the black hole? I'm thinking a small block of wood W/ a hole drilled at the top and a dowel to locate it. Is this far-fetched or maybe someone has a better idea. Any better ideas welcome!!!

I have yet to try it, but some people have told me to bungee the chain to the hood. I think it is genius, and plan to try it like that. Although I've wondered if it would stretch the chain.

What we usually do is use a friend. They hold the chain while you install the new cam. The bungee hooked to the hood is the other way if you are doing this solo.

I wouldn't try doing the job alone.... Those bolts attaching the sprockets to the cams are torqued to over 100 ft-lb. I'd be impressed to see one person get those loose. It's a much simplier job if you have two people doing it. It helps to have two people just to keep track of things too. Make sure you have the FSM. The bolts have to be untorqued and retorqued in a specified order and amounts.

'96 SE-R.... a few tweaks here and there :)

First I need to do the swap Saturday then next weekend do the cams. By the way, where do all the nissan guys hang out on weekends? There doesn't seem to be too many modified sr20 powered cars in the Worthington/ Dublin area.
