engine DIY's?

im planning on building and swapping engines soon.
im still learning about these cars so i dont know everything.
ive searched around E30tech and some other sites with no luck.


Is there any good writeups or sites on removing and installing the stock 325 engine? also plan on swapping cams. i have the basic common knowledge for most of this stuff, just not all the technical bits like specs and what not.
Links or any info much appreciated.

Thanks, Travis.
