Motor is apart and the block is being cleaned and decked. Valve seals being redone and head cleaned. The valve covers are off to the powdercoaters. Motor looked really good for 166,000+ miles. There were a few oil leaks but that is to be expected. Radiator, radiator hose, steel braided brake lines, and caliper rebuild kits are in. A new AC condenser is on order. The old one is on its last leg. Clutch and flywheel are in. Lots of pictures below.

For some reason i can't post pictures. Maybe they are too big. I will have to find a way to resize them.

Thanks guys. I am just turning a dream I have had for a while into reality. I would post more pictures but for some reason I can't. The block is supposed to be back from the machine shop Tuesday or Wednesday. I will try and figure out a way to post more pics. I think I have exceeded my maximum limit.

Unfortunately the block has been delayed until Friday at the machine shop. On a good note the intake manifold has come in. I will post a pic of it a little later. I haven't seen it in person yet but from the picture it looks pretty good.

It has been a little bit since I have posted an update because the block was at the machine shop. I am going to check on the car tomorrow. In the mean time I would like to know what air filter you boosted guys use besides K&N. I refuse to use them again.
Thanks.

If you don't have a MAF sensor to worry about, there is really not much to worry about with K&Ns. I usually clean the K&N but don't oil them much or at all. It makes for a reduced efficiency catching particles, but haven't had a failure or notable damage on a teardown from it.

That said, I usually just go with AFE now as you can build the part number for the dimensions you need, and they come in either dry or oiled configuration.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am not interested in K & N not because it is oiled. I had a bad experience with them in the past. It allowed an unacceptable amount to dirt past the filter. Had one on the car and the bike. I removed both of them. I will look into the Advanced Flow Engineering filters. Any other suggestions? Keep them coming. I went to look at the block Friday but it still was not back from the machine shop. It is supposed to be ready by Monday. I am not holding my breath. At any rate either way on Monday I will post some more pics as more stuff has come in.

Well unfortunately it will be a few more days before the block is ready. So far it has gone through 3 hot dips. Still needs to be blasted, however I was able to get a few pictures and one of my goodies that I have been waiting for finally came in!

Well finally got the block back from the machine shop Friday. I didn't get a chance to go by and see it until last night. While I was at the shop I took a few pictures of some other parts that came in. I am still looking for air filter suggestions. I plan to start filing rings for the pistons this weekend. I will also be replacing the valve seals.

The block


Pile O Parts


Equal length turbo manifold



Tail Blowoff valve


Tail Wastegate


Intake plenum


Flywheel


New tensioner to go with the timing belt


Turbo Oil Line Fittings


New Water Pump


New Oil Pump
