    That is a loaded question. How much damage is done to the motor, what is your ability, do you have proper tools and good area to tear apart a motor?

    For some people they can rebuild a motor in their sleep, other people like myself, aren't sure which end of the screw driver to use.

    Get in touch with a member in your area who has experience and learn from him. These engines are pretty easy once you have all the right tools.

    Please don't take this offensively sky, but I have read most of your posts and I understand you REALLY want to build an RXP, but from reading I can understand that your "wrenching" ability seems kinda limited. Why don't you try doing simple mods first, like intake, exhaust, grates, props etc then worry about building. You seem to want to skip the learning process. Again don't take it personally as I am trying to help you understand that in building motors you can't cut corners. Good luck tho and ask questions!

    You have to learn how to wash dishes and prep salads before become a head chef. If you ask how hard it is to do something you probably aren't ready. Most people here learned by removing a resonator, then removing a super charger. they then had the valve covers off. Next thing you know they were pulling an engine.

    Does this mean I am going to be pulling my engine soon?
