I haven't posted in forever and a bunch has been going on.... MOSTLY life sucking and turbo blowing up...

to try and keep from blowing up turbo's got an inline oil filter...






here are some pics of it all back together....







here is where i think most of it came from, i talked to a tech at FP who knew a ton and he asked if i had my valve cover powder coated i said hes and he said to check the baffle under it for crap.... well mine had crap









finally all cleaned up...


the brakes were awefull so to fix it...

4 - remanufactured calipers
4 - SS brake lines
4 - ceramic brake pads
resurfaced my calipers



the fittings and lines on the back brakes were trash so i cut em off, re-flared the lines and put new fitings on with the ss lines.





checked my oil filter again.... still gettin junk but its gettin less and less...


lastly... put in a new aluminum radiator with slim fan and had a hell'of'a time wiring it all up for some reason my car wasn't happy using the wiring from the old fan and i had to re-wire all of it and move the temp sensor to the thermostat housing...



put in a new clutch and lightweight flywheel (dont have any pics of that one)

So quick recap:
-kept blowing up turbos (even with the inline oil filter)
-got sick of it and decided to go big with a diff motor

yanked the stock motor and trans out...


yikes what a mess hun? dont worry it will get tucked/shaved/sprayed and look awesome


new motor getting some advice from my old one...


tore the new 2.4 block apart to check it all out... (only things i will be using is the block and crank)




then tore into the old motor to get the parts off im going to be using and see what condition it was in...




burnt valves anyone...


looking down these intake runners i cant wait to start porting and polishing...


now there's just parts everywhere...


just need all my new stuff to come in so i can get this beast back on the road...

got some more done today....

threw my head on the ol' bridgeport mill for some port work




here is a fun befor picture (not the super clean part where the E85 was sprayed through my injectors




exhaust port






then got some parts in... FINALLY...

some sweet oliver I-beams


gasket set


acl race main and rod bearings


ferrea dual valve springs wit retainers


compared to the stock springs

I'm curious. All that crap in the valve cover, is it powder coating, or is it from sandblasting, or both? Did the powder coater or sandblaster not take proper precautions to keep the crud out of the inside?

Also, I was wondering if you plan to put the inner panel back in (or fab a new one), or if it would be unnecessary to do so. Just curious and trying to learn something new. Thanks!

Looking good so far either way. I can't wait to get mine back up and running, though I'm a long ways out.

yeah combo of old burned caked in oil and sand from the sand blasters. maybe some powder coat in there too.... im not putting mine back in and no one "needs one" but if you do take it out you need to have a proper catch can because it will increase blow by out of the valve cover breathers.

Question about that intercooler. I never understood the side to side flow IC's with the hot side and the cold side sharing an endtank. Is it divided internally? I hope so otherwise the air could bypass the core altogether. Before anyone says "Of course it would have to be!" I have actually seen some Ebay stuff like that.

the oil feed is coming off the oil filter housing.

if you figure out how the inline filter isn't catching everything and i still blew up the turbo i will pay you 500 dollars

The inlet and outlet end tanks are siamesed together on one side but they are internally divided. The air ends up making two passes through the core. That's the way it is supposed to work at least. I hope even with the often shoddy craftsmanship of ebay stuff they wouldn't overlook something like that.

started cleaning up the engine bay
HUGE UPDATE: got a ton done but haven't been keeping this thread updated....



drained and yanked the ol' fuel tank out. its freakin nassssty


heres the new one to replace it. 16 gallon.


then all my fuel fittings and line came in.


got a little more done....

FIRST OFF...

im super pissed the paint i got is wayyy of in color. its called "WINTER WHITE" come on now. its gotta be white. nope how about sky blue.





HOW LAME. im working with the people i bought the paint from to try and get a refund.

also got the motor back from the machine shop.









got more done....

dont hate... i went for function way over form.... -12 oil drain... no more blowing turbo's for me.



v-band for the WIN....



got my down pipe fabbed



then said... why not recirculate the wastegate.





started gettin ready to slap the trans on it...





then remember i wanna weld my center diff and paint the trans before i put it on... so that ended it for the night.

so... didn't go to work and got a ton done today....

started by acid washing and power washing my trans...




then quick coat of paint...



then decided i to weld up my center diff.





not pretty but it will do the trick




threw it all back together... and put the trans back on the motor



stabbed it back into the car



finished up my down pipe for now...



wired in the new plugs for the big ol' injectors (twisted, soldered, then heat shrunk)



got my fittings all sorted for my fuel pumps... not pretty but it works (had ordered cooler fittings but they were outta stock and refunded and cancelled my order)



got my fuel feed lines and fuel pumps and inline filter all hooked up (still gotta run my return)



had midwest hose make me some new lines for my new oil cooler, got it put on...





then at the end of the night my car gave me a nice thanks for the hard work and broke the v-band when i was putting the down pipe on.

precision 6262 - billet non ball bearing.

got some more done...

did a boost leak test but first had to make a 4 inch boost leak tester.








then simply clamps to the turbo



then to clean up my vacuum system i was gonna buy a distribution block and then saw they were 50 bucks and said nope.... so i made one.







made a catch can the other day after work... its gonna be a real one to...





the baffle inside is where the vacuum port is to keep oil from gettin to it.






obviously none of the welds are cleaned up in this pics and it still doesn't have the vacuum port on but you get the idea.

cleaned up a bit and with my vacuum port added onto it.



got some more E-85... hehe..

NO officer... this isn't a race car, its totally street legal.





pulled my diff to weld it up...



19 years and 175,000 miles and it looks brand new...



finished the diff and got it all back together.

Wow. All that work to weld up a 3bolt rear once you brake a axle you fu-ked. You will never get the chunk of axle out. You would have been better off just putting in a 4bolt now.
