update - blue car motor is finally out and torn down.
When time permits I have been working on the replacement.
What will be going in:
Honey Badger +2 shortblock
GSC S1 cams
+1 intake and exhaust
Now the ported heads and valves may seem like a bit of overkill for this turbo, but that's because we have another idea we'll be trying out later on that looks promising.
Status right now is this:
Block is at the machine shop getting bored for the HB+2 pistons
Heads go out tomorrow
Crank is balanced and mirror polished
Rods are balanced and rod bearings are sized
The block should be back in the next couple of days. Once I get some free time I will size the rings, balance the piston assemblies, and size the main bearings.
Then the block will get final assembly and we wait for the heads to be done.
After that they go on, engine goes in, and we'll tune it. Tuning will be using the Accessport 2.0.
