do you know if that's for the entire engine? I can only see so far on my phone.. Does it tell how to remove the timing chain and cams and such. I've hit a brick wall on what I'll need to take the timing chain and heads off..

To remove the timing chains and cams you just have to remove the VCT sprocket from the cam and the chain is off the cam. Then you can remove the cam. I think you have to remove the timing cover for head removal. I also believe it's a real beast to re-install the timing chains correctly. You should get a chiton manual for this job. It's very involved. You also need new cam sprocket bolts since they are a stretch install and ruined after removal.

Thanks man, I'm only tearing it apart to take it to the machine shop to save money, ill have them do the putting back together for sure. There are alot of "one time" bolts and things that I am unfamiliar with.. And yes the chain def. has to come off, I'm not sure what to start with.
