Yes, I actually made progress today. Motor's out, transmission is boxed up, and old motor disassembly in progress.

Yeah, my machining is almost done, as is my transmission.

But on to some news that will probably break a few hearts, my clutch sold and my block and 2.3 rotating assembly are spoken for.
Still have a cylinder head up for grabs though.

Got the new fuel line setup sorted out. It actually all fit better than I hoped after revising my approach to how I ran them on my initial mock-up. I may play a bit more due to my OCD, but I'll wait to do that tomorrow.

My machinist is putting the final touches on my block. It's interesting the things you forget to think of until your machinist asks you, but that's why I use him. I love Rocky Mountain Machining and the witchcraft he performs to make your S*** perfect.

Been rather quiet, but I swear big things will start happening next weekend. Everything arrives by freight Thursday.

All delays aside, I guess it's time to get started and putting the demon back together and making witchcraft happen. I gotta say, my "chunk-o-S***" has come a long way since I picked up this gem back in post 1.



I happened to pick up this little gem after a little arm twisting.


Finishing homework, otherwise I'd be cranking away at the build. I should be all buttoned up and ready to tune before the end of the month. More to follow.

The lead technician hard at work.


Slowly coming together. The boy only works so fast, as this is his first time.

After a little finagling with the oil squirters, finally got the pistons all in.


White Italians and coffee are what keeps this project moving forward.

The head technician hard at work installing the Custom Aged 625 ARP studs.


A far better option than the Cometic


Night and day difference.


He struggled a bit on the first go around of 50 ft lbs, but he made it. 75 and 100 he needed an assist from yours truly.


Starting to look like an engine




More to come soon.

Sweet!!!!!! As for what to go with, you're just going to have to commit to one and go for it. All are good builds, but all have their quirks. In my case, doing my 2.4 on the "cheap" still cost me approximately $1700 for the block alone sourcing all the parts myself and hiring out the machining work to a machinist I trust. None of this included the incidentals such as oil pump.

There's only one place to make it, and that's in the same location it would be on a stock 9 block.

No real progress at the moment. Going through a few timing belt shenanigans, and accidentally broke my dial caliper. Otherwise, just finishing up some of the piddly things here and there.

Wow so pretty =) I just need another $3k worth of bolt ons. I sold most of my old parts (Headers, uppipe, wastegate, etc) so that I could upgrade to bigger better stuff.

I'm using a modified evo 8 pump. I'm really not a fan of the adapter plates.

As to the pan, it's a modified AMS wet sump pan. Truthfully, down't waste your money on one. Buschur's modified stock pan works better. That AMS pan has been a royal pain in my ass since I bought it upon initial release.
