      As I have seen your car, I can beleive it, but the correct spelling is "Oompa Loompa."
      Please make a note of it.

      The car I was thinking of is the Integra, and is probably what I'll be driving to the pall a part. Mexicans built the Jetta.
      As far as timing, i would like to sleep in some, but would still like to leave town be for 11am. So 9-10am would be ideal.

      Allen wrenches can do it. They just use 6 of the 12 pts.

      Fixed it for you The head bolts have a lot of torque on them, and the Allens don't grab enough surface area to really get a good bite. Not to mention the head bolts are usually full of oil as well, which will increase the odds of an Allen tool slipping. On something like a head bolt you don't want to risk stripping it out and having to drill, use easy-outs, etc. dealing with stripped/broken bolts is a real pain... I had to drill out 6 broken bolts on my exhaust manifold last year
      A 4-pack of the proper tools can be had for less than $10 at a place like Northern, Harbor Freight, etc and also comes with the proper size for the axle bolts.

      I have the proper tool, I'll let you borrow it. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I'll ask Matt and see if he's up for a PaP run. Looks like it's 30mins or so from his house, and I'm about 40 mins from him. So, we'll see. I'll let ya know.

      I will not be able to make it, I am in North Carolina visiting my dad this weekend, He pays the Bills so I have to put in some face time.
      I hope this does not cause any inconvieniences.
      Neon, If you see a nice looking Digi Head like the one on the Fox we got the Trans from and you feel like pulling it, Ill bring you some cash on Sunday when I get back in town, I just need the Head and cover I guess, Not the cam as I will be upgrading that.
      Again I hope my absence does not cause any problems as this was a last min decision that I had no control over, Even got a speeding Ticket on the way up here there goes 102 bucks that could have been spent on the FOX.
      Hope you guys fun at PAP and come home with some real treasures

      About an hour and a half to get there, maybe less.

      Now all thats left to do is build something like this with it... minus the trailer wheels and hood pins, lol

      Sorry I didn't get to reply to you earlier, I was watching the US hockey team hand Canada their "bacon" (and then tell Canada that their bacon is really just ham).
      I'll take the tool with me to work, and you can meet me at the UGA library to pick it up. Just send me a text a few minutes ahead of time and I'll come meet you by the steps. I'll be at work from 8:15 until 6 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I really wish I could go too, but given the furlough situation and the fact that I need to save vacation days for this summer, I won't be able to make it.

      Picked up a Digi Head today at PAP, had a very interesting conversation with one of the Latino men about Entering and exiting the country and avoiding the not so long arm of the law. I did not find the rear disc brake setup I was looking for. Guess Ill just have to keep going back

      Looks like ill be degreasing and pressure washing everything I can reach tomorrow and quite possibly droping the "new" head off at carrols to have it Hot tanked and tested before I move on.
      Still looking for an engine hoist to borrow and a Valve Spring compressor.
      Eric- Thanks for the heads up on the triple square drives at autozone! Its so much nicer to work on things when you have the right tool. I also picked up a 30mm Axle socket so I can swap out the axles at some point
