    The engine started to behave more and more like a sh!tbox by engine dropping the RPM under 500 (90% of the time) when it was out of gear no matter the speed but the lower the speed the more often it happened, in the end shutting off unless i was giving a tap of love to the throttle pedal multiple times untill it remembered how to idle itself. I have unplugged everything to make my job easier and now i am waiting for the sun to go away so i can put the camlocks and see if it's truly of out time or not but i suspect it is by a tooth or so, unfortunately there are no visible markings on the chain left.

    Well, there is some good part and some bad part
    Good parts
    1. i have unbolted the pulley bolt wich was torqued to inifinity and beyond with a help from a friend of mine and his parkside, it started to smell a bit burned at the end after almost 10 minutes of abuse... thx monkeys
    2. i got all the replacement parts, gaskets, boot, spark plugs, oil, oil filter and a new chain tensioner(i am not willing to replace the whole kit unless it shows some wear and tear)
    The bad partS
    1. i have a right side inside cv boot wich is torned, it was a small hole but when i put my hand it started to squirt
    2. the tools haven't arrived and i really want the torque wrenches
    3. the engine is out of time, checked the timing on the 4th cilinder TDC and nothing allined properly just as a safe measure(from z22se tutorial), timing on 1st cil is bad aswell
    4. thanks to @Jon1796 gm tis is working and i was able to print the whole procedure and it doesn't look that hard

    The drivesahft is a no saver, there was little to no grease almost left in the boot + after hammering it for 30 minutes in a big vice and not willing to come off i will just replace the whole assemble. And no, don't tell my about the cone driveshafts as i don't trust that method and i would rather replace the whole thing than bother with replacing a inner boot ever again.
    I wonder how much money will signumareasa eat again year after year

    I'll give you a tip... I found that replacing the driveshafts instead of fixing the cv-joints is cheaper... because when you buy a new driveshaft you get a years warranty on the complete thing.. so if a boot goes within that period of time, send it back get a free replacement... done. it's also a lot less dirty work. just pull and replace done.

    So the saga continues, i still can't drive it unfortunately and i had BIG HOPES, i mean i could but i prefer not to untill it's fixed 100% or close to
    So updates:
    1. new skf driveshaft with rubber boots instead of plastic, looks good, feels good, let's see how long it will last since it was half the price of lobro/gnk/spidan
    2. one guide rail of the timing chain setup is broken so i ordered the whole kit from febi, there were 2 prices so it might not have the sprockets, if it doesn't i'll order the one from dayco since it's a tad cheaper and the budget for is going dooooooooown faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasteeeeeeeeeeeer than i anticipated
    3. i'll retime the balancing kit aswell while i am there just as a safe measure
    4. a balljoint boot is having a metdown, apparently meyle didn't agree with my driving style through rough terrain, i'll get the boot from the old balljoints
    5. i dunno, i am tired but still not giving up, i have a feeling that this relationship with the car will make me angry enough to have a garage build at some day just for my own pleasure, also a few more tools
