Ran into a bit of trouble
Started the car yesterday morning and there was a loud grinding noise, looked inside to find metal shavings scattered in the engine bay. I was terrified that there may have been interference in the valve train. Took everything apart and found that the cam sprocket had come loose and when it wobbled it had begun to grind. Found the proper torque value for the cam sprocket and hopefully everything is going to work out. The timing belt marks still line up so I'm hopeful. Tomorrow I'll put it all back together and see how she runs.
