    as far as i can tell, i didn't do anything as retarded as not connecting my coil packs. my dad and i towed it to a shop a couple of hours ago, so hopefully they will find out what the problem is soon.

    edit**.. but i hope it is something retarded (and cheap) that i missed, rather than something serious and expensive..

    Checklists and pictures go SO far when doing something like this.

    Did you double check the cam timing? I always turn the motor by hand several times with the spark plugs out to make sure I didn't miss a tooth. After several turns if the marks don't line back up then you know something is wrong. This also would cause a no start situation.

    I did. The first time I put the belt on it was wrong, but the second time it went on I was pretty sure it was right. The marks did line up after a few turns. I've actually taken the belt off and on three times now, so I think I got that part right. I think the mechanic will call me later today to tell me what he finds. Watch it be something stupid like a ground that's not connected.. hoping, bc i'm reaaally ready to have my car back. And get some snow tires. And drive it to go snowboarding, and maybe even enjoy driving in the winter The Saturn is not so good in the snow.

    OOMMGGG THE CRICKET LIVES AGAIN! I DID IT!! WooOO!! I'm a superboss. Time for celebrations. This is pretty much a bigger accomplishment than graduating from college IMO. For me anyway.

    The mechanic called me. They plugged it in and it had a crank sensor code. I had broken the retaining tab thingy when I took it off, and the connection had come loose. Plugged it in, and it runs! I have an exhaust leak, but other than that he said it was running great.

    OMG I'M SO EXCITED I CAN'T DO MY JOB RIGHT NOW.. DISTRACTED BY INTENSE FEELINGS OF RELIEF AND JOY I WANNA DO KART WHEELS!!!!

    It may benefit you to get a tune to make sure everything is even better given that you've made some improvements and did some porting and polishing!
