HA! Would never have thought to remove the abs sensor to do that. Good stuff.

So.. seems weee have been neglecting the thread...


Good news..
TIC came through and made things right. Got a set of longer and thiner helper springs for free.
Thats what you call a proper customer service.




Front studs looking shiny.



Rear spacers installed. Here is comparison.

Next up was the cam replacement.
This was just for peace of mind.



Patient is ready. Decided to do in-car change as sourcing an engine lift would have only complicated the procedure.



Drivers side was first. Old cams actually looked very good.



My "Clean room".



New cams are in. Lobes are thiner than the previous 6x part.
Used the vendor supplied assembly lube, which looked like was a molly paste.




Few days later it was time for the passenger's side.
This is the side that had the scoring.




Always photograph all the timing marks !!!
Crappy gates racing belt leaves blue residue on the bearings.




They never align perfectly but those timing lines on the belt make things so much easier.



Something different for a change.
Went to a local car show.. and this was the coolest diesel truck i've seen.
Talk about creativity and attention to detail.






Another car show.. Few skylines inside and seats made from old drag slicks.

so you just swapped cams without measuring the clearance?

also I see you are running chase bays ps can, if that thing is non-baffled I would ditch it, I had a lot of issues with mine which eventually killed my pump

it doesn't have to be perfect but it has to be within the allowed range, otherwise you are looking for trouble
drop the valve covers once more and measure with a feeler gauge what clearances you have in there

This build is very motivational. Glad I clicked on it, seeing and understanding the love pumped into this over 4yrs as reshaped the goals for my car. Truly awesome thread, build, and cast of friends.

Alrighty then...


Since the master disconnect resets the cluster's shift light and I didnt feel like shelling out $150 for one that I liked. I made my own.



Right in yo face.. Green, Orange and Red.
Vipec config took no longer than 1 minute.





Now.. speaking of trophies..
Went to Daytona Subaru show.. and well.. took best of show..




And.. made a friend as well.

Absolutely Incredible build. I just moved from Jax in February, I wish I had seen this earlier so I could have checked it out in person.

Seriously, the most inspiring project I've ever seen.

I'm not necessarily referring to the build itself which is UNBELIEVABLE, but not giving up through out all the years of hard work and difficulties!


Keep it up. It's amazing.

So... finally an update.

I have an imaginary tapping issue and needed to put it to rest.
Thus I had to do over the 1/2 ass job I did before.


Off to drain the radiator...



Meet the patient.



Left side was first.



And the results are in:



And the right side.



And the results are:




Right
Intake

1 - 229 - 9
2 - 203 - 8
3 - 254 - 10
4 - 229 - 9


Right
Exhaust

1 - 279 - 11
2 - 305 - 12
3 - 330 - 13
4 - 356 - 14


Left
Intake

1 - 254 - 10
2 - 203 - 8
3 - 229 - 9
4 - 229 - 9


Left
Exhaust

1 - 305 - 12
2 - 305 - 12
3 - 330 - 13
4 - 330 - 13


GSC S2 cam card says:

7 - 9 thousand for intake
9 - 11 thousand for exhaust

Some builders do prefer to run a slightly bigger lash.. (so I read)

Except that 14 on the Right exhaust #4 I dont see any issues..
Then I am not an engine builder..

After much thought I've decided to re-set the valve lash.

I found a "hidden" .0015 feeler gauge and re-did the measurments.

Now measurements we are within 0.0005" ...



Looking at the cam card I've decided to go with 0.009" lash on the intake and 0.011" on the exhaust.





With the new garage having more space, it was the first time really I got to fully utilize the cart.



That Gates "ricing" belt keeps on leaving marks..



New buckets are on order... lets hope I got my math right.

A bucket here.. and a bucket there..
and looks like we are done.



Specs call for
.008 Intake +/- .001 (goal was .009)
.010 Exhaust +/- .001 (goal was .011)


Here are the final results.






For those that are interested I found this easy bucket calculator made by some guy on Nasioc..
Here is a link to the xls.
