Made a little bit of progress today. Kiggly main girdle. On the arp main studs do i have to back them up half a turn before torqueing like with the head studs? Anybody know the torque specs or should i go figure out how to use google?

Did you have the block checked/machined with the ARP main studs torqued and girdle in place?

Ok. So i finally got my pistons and rods. Manley turbo tuff I beams and manley pro series dished 8.5:1. On gapping the rings (top and 2nd) they say for high boost application on the gap go bore size times .008 and with the oil rings a min of .015. Anybody have any personal experience with this? Should i just go with it?

I found some time to take care of a couple little projects ive been wanting to do.
Mounted my battery. Odessy pc680 with the odessy bracket.





Ive never been fond of our brake fluid reservoir. It will mount in the stock location, just less of an eye sore.
I came up with this using a weapon-r can i had laying around.

I got the can back from the welder and was able to finish up this set-up. I am thoroughly pleased.

I do have one small fitment issue. The front motor mount needs to come down 1/8". Has anybody ran into an issue like this before? Would it cause the engine to sit to far out of wack if i weld and redrill the holes in the bracket? Thanks in advance.

A 1g BOV seems pretty small for that size of a turbo?

It sticks out like a sore thumb that is probably why. Just was wondering that is all.

Today I started prepping the bay for a shave and paint.
On an unrelated note i now have a passionate hate for the color white.

Just thought I'd drop a few more photos here. I put my "special" upper radiator support on and started cleaning up all the worthless holes in engine bay.

Por-15ed the engine bay today. Still have to drop the front subframe and clean that up. Then I can drop the engine in.
