I was not able to get the EGR piping to fit after using the BEGi reroute. This could easily be my failure but I haven't recieved clear instructions or pictures showing the back side of the head installed with EGR on a 99.

I build a EGR blockoff plate to get around that issue. I don't even have a complete EGR tube so it seemed pointless to try and retain it. This ghetto tube is what came on my car when I bought it.

You guys without CARB requirements are lucky to say the least.

[hijack]

What about the Gearheads' QMAX coolant reroute package that Emilio is selling? Heater takeoff and CLT sensors remain in stock location relative to thermostat.

Getting back on-topic- Ben, were the ARP bolts recoverable after the ingestion? I'd hate to think they're still in there.

I like the GearHead's solution, it's just expensive. The BEGi items cost less, even if I have to put some work into it. I've got to allocate money as wisely as possible to be able to afford this build.

Would you want to follow around a 110lb rottweiler to look for the bolts in the aftermath? I'm just lucky she only tore open the bag for the main studs and I've still got those.

Honestly, if I were complaining about a $299 coolant reroute system being expensive, then yes, I'd probably be following the 110lb rottweiler around waiting for it to produce $120 worth of head studs.

ETD will have a cheaper coolant reroute out sometime soon. I'm considering waiting on it to become available.

Often wondered that myself. It seems to me you would have to wait until after the machine work before ordering bearings.

I'm going to let the machine shop specify the bearings.

I hand the engine to the shop and let them do their job the way they want.

That's why i have not ordered bearings yet...
They have to check out the crank first and then tell you whether you need oversize bearings or not etc.
*noob here* so beware of my advice lol

well it makes perfect sense unless you've got several thousand dollars in micrometers and whatnot.

of course this all presumes that your engine builder isn't a fuckup.
