removing cam timing chain
pulling the head off enough to squeeze the gasket in there and align it.
removing the cam chain can be done without taking the front cover off the engine... but its not easy. you will also should replace the head bolts, because they may have stretched beyond their fastening capacity.
I would talk to fullthrottle, as he was the guy putting all the chains together during his build.

not 100% sure still need to take it in to get checked out, but Compression could be bad as well....basiclly I was on the way home from work and I noticed an oil smell, but I thought it was the car in front of me, cause he was smoking so I paid no attention to it. later on check engine light comes on and I start wondering, couple minutes later I hit like limp mode. I pull over and pop the hood and the dip stick is popped and oil is all over the engine bay. I get it home and let it sit for awhile and go check the fluid level and theres no oil on the dip stick, get the girl to drive me to the auto store and get oil (takes 3 1/2 quarts to get it to touch the dip stick, and another quart to get it to the top. started the car and I have a rough idle, white smoke out the exhaust(does like a quick puff puff puff puff), Car never over heated during the drive home or when I started her, could be oil in the spark plugs, just preparing for the worse and hoping for the best
