Although this is the fourth turbo combination I've run, it's my first engine rebuild. Thanks to coconuteater and Charlie S for donating several parts, and also to the others who'd offered to help. Today this build got started with dropping the parts off at the machine shop. One BH code block:

Matt, I would Highly recommend the Oiling system mods Doc Proposes in this document.

Happy building and boosting. - with the Power and tunability ( ability to make more power) that you will infuse onto the slant you will want those parts to be skookum as frig!


Happy Building and Boosting!

Greg

No progress this week as I'm working from home and the car's at the shop at work. But last week I got a few pictures of doing Doc's water pump block mod. I know, should have done that before taking it to the machine shop, but better late than never!

This block had a big ridge in the water pump cavity.

Let's make some sparks.

The final result.

I tried to use some grease to keep debris out of the oil galley while doing Doc's oil galley porting mod.

It did not work quite as I had hoped.

Ouch. I always take some time and do all my grinding and dirty prep before I take the engine to the shop to get cleaned up and machined. You can do grinding afterwards before assembly, but it's a pain to clean everything...

Blast that clean with brake cleaner and pipe brushes before assembly!
