Oh what i would do for a 4KE race cam. To hear this little motor lump would be dreamy. 

I am truly jealous

They are pretty cheap over here. You could get your reground if nothing is available

Type: Fast Road / Kent 234 

Specifications: 

Duration at .017": 280 degrees 
Duration at .050": 234 degrees 
Cam lift: .293" 
Lobe separation: 107 degrees 

 

Type: Very Fast Road / Wade 140 

Specifications: 

Duration at .010": 290 degrees 
Duration at .050": 239 degrees

Some double valve springs and decent exhaust will be required. Turn up the fuel too and you can skim the head for 10:1

USDM 4KE was rated for something pathetic like 58 hp.

 

Rockauto has a good supply of bits for these

Weird seeing an O2 sensor on a 4K.

Back in my day people welded diff's.  I would rather pour lead in them. The axle shafts will thank you.

So... what will you do about the rear bumper?

As in body fill lead? Does it help take some of the harshness out of it?

If you ever get a LSD for the rear end I can sell you uprated clutch disks to make it work better.

That's good to know. I do want an lsd eventually. But finding one I  the USA is nearly impossible. If I do get one I will let you know.

The rear bumper all though being an eye sore will have to stay for a while. It is a nice resting spot for my bum when at the car meets. All though a nice similar style rally bar would be fitting.

Fishing sinkers, solder, any lead.   It flexes takes the worst of the shock loading.
