Default EJ22T Structure - should I be worried?

This has been sitting in my garage for awhile since I bought it (underfunded project) and I finally got around to posting this. Should I be concerned about the block's integrity? It looks like someone tried to open up (scarred) the passages quite a bit.......not very professional:

Belly up, driver side


passenger side


exterior view

are you talking about the scratches in the passages?
i just went and looked at a ej20g closed deck..and it looks very similar.
if your just talking about the scratches you should not have a problem.

That hole looks to me like a typical crankcase pressure channel to allow the crankcase to equalize pressures between the crankcase and the valve covers. Looks the same on most (if not all) suby F/I blocks.

Cool, I hope so. When you have a better look at it, it appears that it was done with a beer (maybe more than one) in one hand and a drill bit in the other...unless they just do it that way from the factory.
