THE NEW MOTOR IS IN!!!! I decided to swap out the tiny turbo I had on and put something more sizable on there to give me the extra push I needed
We started taking everything out on Saturday morning and things looked like this in the beginning:
and ended up looking like this by the end of the night
Old Faithful finally getting to rest in peace now
As we were taking off the oild pan from the old block, it was apparent that it was a good thing that it came out when it did as we found this....I have no idea what it tore off of
Old faithful was probably minutes away from blowing up on me so I am so happy I was able to get it out in time.
Putting the head studs in the new block
Looking like I happily got dragged by a bus after night one
And new motor in
That video was of yesterday afternoon on my way home from work. We didnt finish everything on the car until 6AM monday morning and I had to leave my house for work at 8am. By the time I got there, I was so exhausted that my boss told me to go home. Unfortunately for me, I forgot to change the slave cylinder when were changing engines and sure enough, on my way to work, it took a **** on me.
I had to park 5 miles away from work at a McDonalds until 11am when my friend from work took me to my car where I proceeded to replace my slave cylinder in a parking lot for the second time in 4 years. First time was on my way to work although that time I was able to get the car in the parking lot of an Advance Auto that time lol.
The funny thing is that in that video I peaked at 29psi and I hadnt changed the boost controller at all. On Old Faithful, I was making 25psi on the same setting.
Next up is getting a new meth controller from AEM, turning the boost up to 30psi, hitting the dyno and seeing what will be inhibiting me from more power. I R Happy.
