    That's the plan.
    Actually planing on starting it up soon. I'm getting anxiety attacks just thinking of it.

    Relax. It's gonna be fine.

    FYI, there is really no way to prime the 2.4 before cranking it, so my advice is to pull the plugs and let her free crank with no compression until you see oil pressure.

    UPDATE!!! finaly got it started. It stumbled on the first start. But shot right up on the secound try after a few tweeks. Idle is a bit quick and will look into it shortly. I need to learn all this tuning stuff which is new to me. I can't even post up a video of it,lol!
    I used one of Mike's base tune and it seemed to do the trick! Thanks Mike

    Thanks Mike. I'll get one with it running smooth and maybe even roll a few feet

    Decided to remove the power steering pump since it was defective and switch to a stratus alternator bracket at the same time. What alterrnator are you guys using? My nippondenso doesnt fit!! Seems to be 1/2" to tall.
