I met a dude up in NorCal (the guy that welded Mr. Hale's tips on and
up his core support), that put a 20 valve N/A motor in his 4kcsq. He
replace the timing belt, because the motor "only" had (actually, I
like 35k on it or something. I believe the belt broke after only a few
if not at startup!
Someone else may know who/what I'm talking about. I believe he's in the
QCofA. He's got the custom-fabbed metal ur-q fenders on his multi-color
4kcsTq with Ronal 18"'s.
