I was just wondering what you had planned for a rear end.....Did you get a 6spd to put in as well or are you going to see how long the 5spd lasts? I pm'd you my contact info so you can get ahold of me.

A quick word of advice. Unless you started with a brand new/rebuilt oil pump housing, definitely check the pressure relief valve piston and bore on the oil pump. At least a couple of us here have had failures after installing new pump gears in a used housing, myself included. It sucks having to pull the engine out again after an epic and expensive engine build for something as simple and as cheap as a stuck oil pump pressure relief valve.

My pressure relief valve stuck open resulting in no oil pressure and cam bearing damage. I ended up buying a new oil pump and swapping out the stock gears with the same Boundary Engineering set you have. I wish now I had just done that in the first place. I have a thread about it somewhere around here.

I have a set of new stock gears if anyone needs them.

Yeah i already did that. I would never just slap gears in and go. The housing was in good shape, relief valve and spring were perfect, cleaned it lubed it and rebuilt it. Should be good to go. Good looking out though, i read about that happening before on here, that would suck, but im 100% sure mine is ok.

I'm doing the torsen for now cause I got a good deal on it. Once it goes, which will probably will in 2 seconds, ill get a quaf or something a little more beefy. Maybe an rx clutch type like Jay. He rocks that thing with 450 all day long. And yes......500 on a 1.6....lets see what happens....

Made some prgress this week! not much but some lol. Radiator and fans came in along with my corksport gears, gates racing tbelt, and headstuds.

I was a little worried that a godspeed radiator and fans were going to require some fabrication of brackets to get it to fit right....much to my surprise, 100% easy bolt in!

You may want to add a ATI damper at those HP levels.

Thought about that....Im gonna see how the car is at first then go from there. I mean i wish it was this easy but its not like im going to turn the car on and instantly make that kind of power. Its gonna take some serious dyno time and some serious patience.
