Default Zaphod's Re-build

After we found out what the "nasty noise" (see other thread in the Engine performance section) was:









the first parts for the rebuild have arrived:

let's call it engine ****

Most expensive parts - the stickers...



Cometic-headgasket



Wiseco pistons - (is there something like glass-engine-blocks btw...?)







Rods made by K1:







ARP-headstuds (well, inside the package)



Now on to the engine rebuild.
