you can daily drive with ported heads pretty easily no??? why dont you just save the sleeves for later to then??
no cams or anything up there either??
head studs??
should have gone with a 12mm pump im sure its the same price.
looks good to go though. i would think you have head studs but forget to mention, also gaskets? might look into a thicker head gasket

havent bought parts yet, i like to check first, i can still get the 12mm pump. i am probably going to go with cometic head gaskets, havent thought about head studs for some reason, not sure why. reccomendations and why?

the reason im keeping stock heads right now is i will be stuck on the vf39 for a while and i still need a 6 speed swap. i going to do the short block, the tranny, and then either the top end or the turbo, not sure on that yet. i know it doesnt make sense to everybody, its just how i want to do it. when i do the top end, i might drop some 100mm or 101mm pistons in at the same time, i will see when i get there.

true, i would go for the 12mm just because.
cosmetic head gasket for sure, prob a stock full gasket set also.
arp head studs, i dont even think there are any other companies who make them, def get them.
i would also do some cams to go with those heads and oil pump, and youll be able to rev her out pretty high, 8k+......what size turbo are you going to be running when its all done?
good luck,

Chris

I got the 11mm 08 pump instead. It has a better design and I think it flows more than the 12mm.
Gasket kit will include stock head gaskets. I'd use those...
ARP head studs for sure.

when its all done i will be looking at a 30R or 35R on meth, got the new HFS-6 kit on the way from awuamist, spec-C tank sitting in my living room. forgot the gasket set of course.

Im not going with the 08 P&L pump because i have been strongly reccomended against it. not saying it doesnt work, just not what im going with.

any reccomendations on an aftermarket water pump or is a factory replacement fine?

if your going to a 35r or even a 30r maybe look into cams.
yeah i figured you had the gasket kit.
im not sure but i think stock water pumps are fine, my builder got a oem one for my build.

Don't forget the timing belt. I wouldn't bother with the sleeves, spend that on cams. If you insist on sleeves, wait and save money for the headwork. Much cheaper in the long run. You'll kick yourself later if you don't.

timign belt is already sitting at my house, along with 8mm phenolic spacers.

cams will come later, before the big turbo for sure. i am pulling the engine myself, and the heads, its not like it will cost me anything extra to do it later, its going to have to wait right now, my budget wont support an entire engine build, drive train, and rotated turbo setup. i didnt just hit the lottery. i understand it would be beneficial to do a lot of this stuff now, but its not going to happen.

What is the power goal for the car? 35r and never anything bigger? If so dont bother sleeving, it would be a waste. Having sleeves on a daily driven car is just plain overkill. Look at all of the 35r cars that are maxing that turbo out on stock sleeves.

If your going to be building a sleeved block you might as well get some bigger head studs like 13 or 14mm.
