Then I drove the hell out of it for about a year!








Next I decided I was gonna build a single cam. So the build starts































Next is wiring. Switch panel, gauges, and new body harness.

why did you spend that much on performance motor parts and decide to put them all in a single cam instead of building the dual cam ka that's already in the car?

hahaa good question. The dual cam that was in there was crappy, someone else swapped it in, it ran good but was very weak.....So I decided to build a strong single cam. With all the crazy swaps everyone is doing, they are almost becoming the norm. Who doesn't have or know someone with a SR or a ka24de, LSx, etc. I just love the way the Single Cams perform.
