The only reliability issue I've had with the engine is the intake valve seats. (And Im not alone there). And that would have happened 100 shy of where I actually was last year too.

I am excited about the new setup and am somewhat confident the intake valve issue is fixed.

My car's power delivery is very easy to manage. That's my setups goal. I wasn't interested at all in peak power when it was designed. It was manageable power delivery, usable power band and transient throttle reaponse.

I agree, your power delivery was great, especially with the traction control. Similar to mine once I got the wastegate issues fixed, you just have more of it.

Reliability. What do you think it would do on a road course doing 20 minute sessions with full throttle pulls through 3 of the top gears every minute or so? My experience has been that type of use kills stuff fast when its turned up that much and you are running a lot more boost than me.

I've reused the same intake valves since I first built it to 2.0 L like 9 years ago. I'm on the third bottom end rebuild and second head. I burned exhaust valves twice. I think if I only did autocross with it however I probably would still be on the first build.

A few pictures of the winter progress.

The Dr. Pepper can is there for scale


Upgrading the lines does you no good if you still have 5/16ths hard line in the tank....


And I decided to move a little weight around inside the car.......this picture stresses me the hell out.

Are you leaving the fuel pump wiring connector stock?

What are you running for a filter?

lol at all the stupid comments on fb. "I'll take your megasquirt" "Are you building an Exocet" "I'll take your wing"

Um no bitch. The engine is out for rebuild and I'm making it better.

Got the ABS brick relocated, mounted and re-wired. Now just to build the new lines.

Also if you have an old 1.6L SC that you don't need any more, I know someone who runs one that might be interested in buying a spare.

Got back from PRI on Sunday and had a few boxes waiting for me.

:Spent some time with the ACL guys at PRI. Explained my frustration with bearing supply in a very polite way and complimented their product by saying that even though I could have switched product lines, I wanted to stick with theirs.........apparently flattery get's you everywhere.



At PRI I attended several informative seminars on engine bearings, engine coatings, engine building, cam timing and cylinder pressure.

Also...I think I have found the new blower setup for the car. A friend of mine snapped this picture of me looking at this setup just a little too hard.



I also finished the ABS brick relocation project. All the new lines are made, in the car and bleed.

Can you not run a brake bias valve in SSM? Also, could you shed some light on the fittings you used in your distribution block. I have never seen anyone run SS flex line for brakes before but it seems like a great option considering how much trouble I have had with hard lines.

Yes you can run a bias valve in SSM. The entire braking system is free and urestricted other than the requirement that the rotor friction surface be metallic unless the car came with carbon brakes from the factory.

The lines are ss-braided ptfe lines with compression fittings. Stuff is available at any major parts house. Make sure you use the same brand hose and fittings. A few folks have has issues when trying to mix and match. All the lines have -3an ends and then a -3an to 10 x 1.0 inverted flare adapter. Total cost of the lines and fittings was around $300. I did all the brake lines and built a clutch line that goes straight from the master to the slave cyl.

Moving the brick took @ 12lbs off the nose and up high, opened up some much needed real estate under the hood and between the weight of the factory ABS bracket, weight of the new lines vs factory lines and the @5 feet of wire removed from the ABS harness. Took a total of @7 lbs off the car. Win, win, win, win.

What year ABS is that? I ended up with an 2004 system out of an MSM in my car. I like it, but it's still in the stock location.

Thanks, here's 69 for you.

Rotor friction surface has to be ferrous, not just metallic. So its got to be iron or steel. No such luck using those pimptastic super lightweight Ti rotors for wilwood.

Fuel pulse damper arrived today. I think that was the last piece of the new fuel system.

Needs carbon fiber bolts. Normal bolts are too heavy.
