First time ever doing valves. That, combined with all the other things I was doing to the engine..... major oil leaks that needed fixing. Also did a turbo upgrade, carrera tensioners, clutch, and built a new wiring harness. The valves were a "hey, why don't I adjust the valves while I have it out" kind of thing. I "thought" I knew what I was doing. Doh! I got everything else right but couldn't get the valves right. After the engine was back in I just couldn't figure out why the car felt so damned slow. I thought maybe it just felt slow because it didn't have the whiplash effect the old 3LDZ gave me since I put a K27-7200 in it. Major suckage. I guess I learned a lesson.
