Ouch!!!

That bites!

Well, I suppose you'll have to change all of your pistons and re-bore your engine and probably change the connector rods. Well, I suppose an AVCS valve-train wouldn't be so bad.

Hmmm.

Maybe you should just buy a used STI engine!

The screw is from a Fuel Hose clamp that shook loose whil my manifold was off.

a good testament as to why all open engine orifices should be blocked off when working on the engine, shop rags should do the trick just fine.

waiting for a job and second car so I can start some engine work

good lookin buildup though adam

Reminds me of a pic I saw in Chevy High Performance some years back of a shop rag halfway sticking out of the exhaust port because someone forgot about it. I've been looking everywhere but can;t find it

rookie move!!
in my 20+ years of amateur wrenching, nothing like this has ever happened to me(knock on wood). but i have unnecessarily pulled heads, etc. back off because i thought i dropped a bolt or forgot something. in fact more than a few times. my dad drilled into my head(literally. with a bosch hammer drill). cleanliness,cleanliness,cleanliness. torque, check,retorque. tape, tape, tape. screw it!(better oil retention)
