I kind of recall that with my Fidanza.

Went to the shop today and picked up everything. Everything looks great and we talked about and clarified the "problems"


This honestly looks like a good reason to oil squirters

This was exactly what he was talking about, but he didn't want to mess up anything of mine by threading it or forcing it in.
As you can see it's a very tight fit. They are not threaded either.


At the end of the day, the importance of balancing:

Actually, the holes on those pistons are a good reason not to have oil squirters. They allow more oil than usual to enter the oil control ring, and are really designed for motors that do not have oil shot under the piston.

Compare those pistons to stock pistons, and you will see what I am talking about.

I may not understand how more oil to that hole = bad. lube = good in most cases.
But I was also talking about the oil relieve ports on the side of the piston. I figure they'd benefit from oil squirters.

When I got my rotation assembly I decided to inspect things. Mainly how they put my harmonic balancer together.
I l was wondering if it seems right? Also there are 2 markings on the balancer which I'm assuming are timing marks?


The "marks" are around the 5th tooth in the picture.

Yup, those are the timing marks in the last picture. Paint marker them a contrasting color so it'll be easier to set timing. They're harder to see than the marks in the stock wheel.

Is there suppose to be 2? I don't remember that on the stock wheel.
You can get a paint marker from Wal-Mart? I was just going to use white-out.

Yes there are 2 stock. IRRC one should like of with the T and the other the 10 if the timing is on factory. White out might be hard to see. I think I used black sharpie on mine.

Well the engine is being put together. Hopefully I'll have it back on the road next week, well more like the week after thanks to the good ol military.



I hate how small the ihi rh55 is:


I'm sorry about all the **** phone pictures. The whole engine build has been capped with a real camera though so after everything is finished I'll make a histogram/progress collection of all of them. Depending if I'd ever not be driving it. :P

So I was expecting to be finished with the motor and put in the car buy Friday/This weekend.
But the machinist doing some headword is taking Thursday-Sunday off for his birthday. Selfish bastard!
Bottom end is all together though. So smooth you can turn it with your hand.
So next week will be when I can complete everything.

I've been wondering about converting various line to AN but I don't believe it would be worth it at this current stage. Thoughts?
Is there any knowledge anyone would like to pass on?

I been gathering various other maintenance items as well. I got Trackspeed Engineering sending me SS clutch line and 2 qts of Amsoil MTG for my 6 speed. I always cringed going into 3rd.

I acquired my "harbor freight det can" awhile back but still require the resistor, audio wire, and sensor(not sure if I want to use my old one). It's pretty nice gadget though comes in a nice case too.

So here's some porting/engine ****:

looks like an awesome build I cannot wait to see how that EFR turbo works out. Did you decide to keep the squirters or not? I would be interested to know. On a general scale I have not made up my mind on squirters in a stock application they work great with the pistons they were designed for. I can say for an old honda engine I had with wiseco pistons with the same holes you have I belive the oil squirters caused the oil rings to get gunked up super fast as in 25,000 miles. It was a mild build NA on stock rods with high compression pistons I put new rings in it after they failed the first time and blocked off the squirters and put another 50k on the car before it was sold never smoked again so I dont know if I would trust them. Just a thought.

I'm keeping the oil squirters. I'd say the piston's oil relieve ports will make use of them. Also keep the temps down a bit maybe. Removing something that's meant to help makes no sense to me.

Haha :P aren't you running an 6-speed too?

I want to run e-85 but the AirForce base doesn't offer it for POVs. Only government vehicles :/ I'm going to try and send a request up to our base commander though. Till then I'm running on dinosaurs.

well you got pistons and rods and headwork to work even with dinosaurs so no biggie.

but if you really wanna start testing the torque capacity of that 6 speed you need to get with dat corn

Yeah! no kidding they have places here in Tampa with it but none close to me everything is pretty out of the way :/ I still have to do some more reading on converting a fuel system to E-85 anyways.

I won't be able to run ALLOFIT :( Need dat corn fed.
I was thinking water/ meth injection though.
