I like the placement of your radiator. Seems thick and like it fit well right behind the intercooler

Anybody know if the drivers seat back and the passenger seat back are interchangeable? the only difference I see is the lumbar adjustment.

100% sure you don't have evo 9 rods on a stock 6 bolt crank.

Engine bay looks great though! I wanted to install my intercooler in the same spot You made it work much better though.

ok. you caught me. the po said it was a dsm graveyard with 9 rods and pistons. just checked their website and its only the pistons. my bad.
thanks the install turned out to be rather simple just attached the upper bracket to the bumper mounts and welded some tabs to the radiator support.

The seat backs are shaped differently (Larger bolster on the outside of them), also the gear/teeth for the recliner would be on the wrong side.

ok. I believe I have my winter plans laid out.
1. fix the dsmgraveyard bottom end with new rods. I see a lot of people using pauter x beams or manley turbo tuff rods. also considering carillo I beams. any imput one rods would be a big help.
2. kiggly main girdle.
3. borg warner s300 turbo (still working out what specs I need to fit my needs).
4. top-mount exhaust manifold
5. acr2 spark amp
6. finish shaving the bay and minimizing wires

I am looking for 5-600hp plus. any and all input appreciated

So i just pulled the pistons and rods. Was planning on just doing rods buuuuut the pistons are pitted as f#ck. So lets replace them to. I am fairly new to the bottom end of the motor. So stock comp ratio is 8.3:1 correct? Im planning on running quite a few booostes, would there be much benifit of switching to an 8.5 or 9.0?





Somehow the cylinders are still mint

Raising the compression will always get you more power. How much pressure are you planning on running? Even on 9.0 to 1 you will have no problem running 35 psi on E85.

35 is right around what im looking for. I will be running a borgwarner s300sx 8375, which is capable of 45psi. And if i can reach that i will. Whats the rule of thumb? Higher boost lower c.r?

I like 8.5:1. That is already a touch higher than stock which is 7.8:1. I like the extra margin of error that lower compression gives you. You could throw a bunch of boost and timing to it and still be relatively safe. I would mic your bores for taper and concentricity bro especially with the condition of those slugs. At the bare minimum, a cylinder hone will be required when you fit new slugs in there.

I was planning on running a hone through it for sure. How would i check the others? Slap the caliper in there at a few different points? Its a little concerning those only have 30k on them

The best way would be a dial bore gage. Most people are not going to have that equipment. The other way would be with telescope gages and a micrometer. Calipers are not accurate enough.

On another note. You can go 9:1 pistons with that turbo and the boost that you want to run. You just need to make sure you have good enough rods to handle that. Those 1120 low z injectors will not be able to handle that. Even if you went to stock compression pistons you will probably run out of fuel. Same with the fuel pump. Your going to need to go to a wally 400 and run -8 feed lines.

I have manley turbo tuffs coming. I think im going to go with the 8:5 comp ratio just to be safe. Atleast until my tuning skillz are up to par. I know i am going to run out of fuel at some point. That stuff is a 30 min job to swap out.(inline pump). I'll cross that bridge when the time comes. Dont suppose map has a dial guage they "rent" out?
