No CF dipped *****, no care.

Vlad, question for you. I just got my donor motor ripped apart here, I'm curious how your cylinders looked before you honed them and how many miles were on your block.

My cylinders all look very nice with visible crosshatching still. There are a few vertical scratches you can barely catch a nail on though, so my question is this. I always hear you should not be able to catch a nail on any scratches or they are too deep. Is this before or after a hone? I'm fairly sure that after a quick hone the scratches will be a non-issue. Good news is the crank looks GREAT. Do you recommend sanding/polishing the crank or anything? I was thinking some super fine grit sandpaper might be in order to polish it out.

Otherwise, hows the build going? I'm going to slap mine together soon I think.. getting excited now that the motor is apart.

mine was somewhere over 100k
it was perfect and still cross-hatched, but I honed it anyway.
I would absolutely hone til there isn't any vertical scratches at all. Any remaining is just asking for trouble. Not sure about the crank, mine was flawless so I didn't touch it at all.

Its going. Yesterday re-assembled and re-installed the oil pump, and the rear ring that holds the rear main seal. Also assembled the intake mani and throttle body back together.

This was my plan, basically hone it until it's flawless. I figure worse case I could end up with a bore on the looser end, but I figured I want my piston/wall clearances a bit loser than OEM anyways due to turbo heat and power.

I'll be happy if this motor lasts 50k, being my first ever built. Of course I hope for over 100k.

I asked about the crank because there were different colored "lines" on it, but nothing you could actually feel with your finger nail. I assume that's fine, but might try to polish it out a bit. I'm not sure how good of an idea that is though.

looking good vladipoo. The oil pan is always "fun" to put on. Did you use a new oil pickup gasket? What kind? did you RTV that thing as well?

Thanks. One came with the gasket set. Yes, tiny thin little film of the Permatex Ultra-Black was applied around the pick up hole just in case. Also I used the stuff on sealing the pan, mbsp, and oil pump. Came out really clean and nice, I hope it works as good as it looks. (the stuff is the strongest out of any I could find, so should probably work fine)

Today I try to finish up the head and start installing that.

Another baseline dyno run today:



I'm super impressed with the consistency between runs. Last run was quite a while ago, same road same weather, etc. This time I got a full pull it looks like, and its within 1hp of the other one.

Looking great man, getting me excited.

Loving the ARP hardware! Did you use ARP main bearing hardware too? I know the rods come with ARP goodness, just wondering about the mains.
