Decided to try and clean the block the best I could. Here is the block before:







Here is after 12-18hrs of soaking in Simple Green and Water solution:








I think it came out pretty clean. Barely any scrubbing after the soaking in Simple Green mixture.

Finally was able to get some more work done today. First time in a while. I ended up measuring the rod clearances and have them good. I ended up going with King Main and Rod Bearings. The place I ordered my bearings from sent me the wrong main bearings so I did not have the chance to measure those clearances. The correct main bearings are being sent so it will have to wait to get those measurements.

FWIW, here are my specs on the rod bearing clearances. I ordered the STD size rod bearings and was very pleased with the consistency in my measurements. I only had to swap out bearings from one rod to another to get very consistent clearances.

Rod 1-----0.0017"
Rod 2-----0.00165"
Rod 3-----0.00165"
Rod 4-----0.00165"


Will have more pictures down the road of the measuring and assembly. I also am going to be ordering the Five-O Motorsports Black Ops 1400cc injectors sometime this week. Since they are very responsive injectors, I am hoping they are fairly easy to tune and good for driveability.

Checked the main clearances, Ill get back on here sometime and post my results.

Also dropped the motor off to the machine shop for the pistons, heads, and crank balancing.

So with my clearances:

0.0017" on the rods
0.0014-0.0015 on the mains

Would I be alright with the stock oil pump or should I upgrade to the 11mm pump? Also I plan on running a 5w40 rotella oil eventually.

Injectors came in. They are a modified version of the EV14 injectors similar to the ID1000cc injectors. The ones I ordered are the Five-O Black Ops 1400cc injectors. I decided to go with these because of the power levels I am trying to reach and the claimed repsonsiveness of the injectors.



The injectors average flow is 1395cc and they are very balanced.

The injector latency values are as follows.

8v----3.607
9v----2.443
10v---1.836
11v---1.464
12v---1.200
13v---1.000
14v---0.821
15v---0.679
16v---0.536
17v---0.429
18v---0.321


I still would need a latency value for 6v on my rom but I'm thinking it might not be necessary since the car should never be down in the 6v range.

Here is a picture of the injectors




They have a larger body than normal so I had to shave off these stop bumps. I will be contacting Five-O Injectors and letting them know about this problem.

Here is an injector on the left with the nubs and on the right where I sanded them off using the belt sander.




This picture shows how it stopped the injectors from seating into the tgv. Oh and by the way I received some top feed tgvs off of another member so I could run these injectors.




Time for the soldering on the clips.










I also ended up taping up the wires with electrical tape to hide/protect and keep the wires together.


I should be getting the motor back from the machine shop sometime this week/weekend and will start the reassembly process.

The motor won't be back from the machine shop until Tuesday. Probably won't be able to work on it for 3 weeks or so. But I ended up doing some more work on other things.

Up-pipe fully shot blasted:




Ceramic Coated with Techline's Black Satin:

The original fuel rails I had were for side feed tgv's which is why I was going to try and adapt the tgvs for top feeds. It ended up being more of a hassle then it was worth so I picked up some top feed tgv. Since the bores were still in the same location I decide I would just cut the bracket off of the fuel rails and weld on a new bracket.


Bracket cut off and sanded down for welding:




Two shots of the new bracket:






Don't mind the **** in the weld. I didn't have any 1/8 filler and had to use 3/32 filler. I couldn't feed the 3/32 fast enough and it trapped some junk in the welds. They will clean up on the sand blaster and after paint.




One less item on the to do list

I also decided to make a new intake for the turbo. I ended up doing pie cuts to get the bend that I wanted. It came out really well and the pie cuts are practically perfect. I will weld it fully up when I get my argon tank refilled so I just have it tacked up right now.

Did a bunch more over the long weekend.

Got the turbo assembled and coated the hot side and center section with ceramic coating.



I also got my motor back from the machine shop




After some assembly, I ended up getting the short block complete and one of the heads on. More to come later on in the week hopefully. Also had the flywheel resurfaced.

Build looks like it is coming along well, any big issues you have had to deal with other then the injectors?

As of this point, everything has been going very smooth. I figured I would have to do some finageling with the injectors at some point either with the rails or the tgvs. If I run into any problems with anything I will be sure to post up on here.

Designed and ordered the material for my coolant over flow tank I will need to fabricate. I decided I would get rid of my old ghetto metal water bottle coolant overflow and make something more legit.

It will be made out of 2"x3"x1/8" tubing and some 1/8" flat stock with a 1" sch 40 pipe for the stem. I will be using a pvc cap for the cap and a rubber grommet to put the tube into.

Got some more stuff done over the weekend. I ended up getting all of the pulleys and new water pump on for the timing belt, just have to install the belt. I don't have any pictures of that but I will be sure to grab some when I put the belt on.

I do have pictures of my tgvs I ended up painting with DupliColor Engine Paint. I believe the color was something like Cast Aluminum. Also painted the fuel rails. Th was the engine paint in Low Gloss Black. They came out well and the aluminum is pretty much the same color as the tgv's were when they were sandblasted with gloss. You can compare the color of the sandblast where I accidentally hit the top surface to the painted color.

On the stock header (FXT Header) the spool was around 4500 for 18lbs with a boost leak. I will be eventually making an equal length header hoping for around 4-4200.

Cost on what parts for the powder?

The wheels were $200 to get coated

The turbo and intake manifold was $75 total for coating

And all of the other intercooler piping was coated for free.

Finished putting on the timing belt over the weekend.














I also did count the teeth to ensure the reference lines were correct and they were.


Here is how I set the guide clearance. I used a small zip tie. It is the perfect size according to the service manual.








I also finished up pretty much everything else and I will post pictures up eventually.
