Hey guys, I finally got my block and head back from the machineshop. Took them 5 months but they seem to have done good work and I'm stoked to start getting it all back together, I just have a few questions first.
My valves contacted my pistons, bending all intakes, which warranted this rebuild. A few of you guys on this beautiful forum here recommended that I reuse my old pistons and rods, which I'm fine with, but besides smoothing all the hard edges, is there anything I have to do before installing them? Excluding clearances, rings, and bearings of course.
Also, as for my wiring question, is there a way to connect my WB O2 sensor to both the ECU (i have dsmlink v3) and the gauge that came with it? I can live without the gauge but I paid for it so using it would be nice lol. Also - I'm planning on cutting all tape and loom off of both of the harnesses (engine and accessory) and retaping / repairing all the way down. How horrible is this job going to be? Should I skip it and just clean up / repair the best I can? I'm trying to do this car the correct way and advice would be appreciated.
as always, thanks guys!
