Default Unorganized Money Pit.........NO 2G...

Finnnnalllllyyyyyy.....

Will update when I get new parts or updates, will be headed to the machine shop soon enough.

Started tearing down my 1.8 shortblock in preperations for building a bulletproof bottom end. Might as well list my plan for building this thing...


Plans-
94 1.8 Bottom End
83.5mm Supertech Pistons (9.0:1)
Eagle Rods (H-Beams)
All ARP Fasteners
King Bearings (Mains, Thrust etc..)
BE Billet Oil Pump Gears
ARP Head Studs
New OE oil pickup
OE seals and gaskets blah blah...
99 Head
Coolant Re-route
ARTtech T3 Manifold
60 Trim Garrett T3
MS-1 Standalone
18-20psi Looking for 280+whp.

Know I left out a lot there, but I'll update as I purchase.

Plus I'm not good yet with being able to read engine wear/damage....so feel free to fill me in on what looks worn out or what looks like its in good shape. Its something I need to learn.

I believe this shortblock had been sitting as well before I got it. Anyone care to explain to me what I should be lookin' for as far as bottom end wear indication?

Just curious, what exactly is this little plug for on our oil pumps? Can we not just find the thread pitch and run a fitting into it for oil feed for tha turbozzzzz?

I have always wondered what it was for too. I put my oil temp sensor in it. It is 1/4 npt if I recall. I heard once that it had a function in a different chassis?

edit: the alternator would probably prohibit running a hose or fitting out of it. My oil temp sensor BARELY fit.

Why the hell would you want to use that port when you have a 94 block with the best possible oil/water sources for the turbo?

I wish I had a 94 block :(

Engine wear looks fine with nothing out of the ordinary. Have the crank polished and the block honed/washed.

I didn't plan on using it for the oil feed personally but, I was curious as to what it was and hell maybe find another possible oil feed port for guys with boosted cars?
