Default 2.0 swap tips

I'm swapping out my 2.0 for another with 60-90K due to a spun rod bearing...what tips do you all have on replacement parts or tips for the install?

Planning to reuse my 20K timing kit from the old motor, new oil/water pumps and swap over my turbo inlet and exhaust manifolds(new gaskets?).

What kind of things like rear main seal, valve cover gaskets(valve or shim job?), etc?

Thanks all,
Rob

I'd do a full gasket set, which is usually around $300. Are you going to re-use the old timing belt? How does the clutch look?

Make sure you send those heads to get checked. No point in putting bad heads on a good block

I'm buying an engine...aka long block plus accessories, tmic, turbo ect.


I'm reusing my timing belt, pulleys and idlers all with 20k.

The gasket set would be for a short block right? I'm just wondering what things i should freshen on the used engine, not cracking the case, willing to do valve seals, shims/buckets, maybe even head work...not sure what's worth it? I guess if i do all of that the gasket set might be worth it.

I am also planning on a killer b pickup and maybe an sti oil pan.
