Your talking major engine work, that's why mechanics get paid the big bucks and charge so much. Sorry, but you can't find everything for free on the internet. If you want to fix yourself, find a general book on engine rebuilding as a start, or enroll in some auto shop classes at your local community college. Pal up with a mechanic buddy.
