    Ive debated riding a bike to work, the only problem is that its on the other side of a big hill, so id start of my ride with a half mile climb each way, which would really suck after a 12-14 hour shift, plus the two large roads i have to cross.

    anyway, to bring this back up, there is a luncti cam package on ebay that includes the cam, retainers, springs, valve seals and spring seats for like 700 or something. My main concern as i stated before is daily driving i enjoy my 22mpg in town but until i get a second car i would like to keep it at or around that. I would obviously upgrade the oil pump, timing chain, push rods and so on. what is the average time to complete this task, assuming the person has done LT headers as the most difficult installation. have full access to any tool possible though dad used to drag race professionally

    It kind of does the same thing but I've never used it like that (small amounts for fillups). I have used it in a couple of cars here that have been sitting around for 25+ years and haven't been started, but I use it in large quantities (creates a smoke show) to lube and clean everything and then it's drained. It does have cleaning and lubricating ability while at the same time it's not corrosive and doesn't contain harsh chemicals, sort of reminds me of transmission fluid. Stuffs been around a long time.

    For regular gas fill ups though I use a 2 cycle engine oil with TC-W3 and mix 1 oz per 5 gallons of gas.
