Assembly

Two pictures of my engine being put together. Pixs courtesy of Toby.

Entire bottom end rotating assembly (crank, rods, pistons, flywheel, clutch, etc) have been fully balanced. The cast iron block has been given a fresh coat of paint. Toby is totally against lightweight crank pulleys hence I bought a stock new one. The ARP main and head studs fit just fine with no clearance issues. Good R&D eh? :) The torque specs are as follows:
  • 8740 main studs - 60ft/lb
  • ARP2000 head studs - 70ft/lb in 2 even steps
Will run with a stock head and cams first. Should be ready for install on the Slowtra post CNY.

This is a daily driver Bro. Can't run on the ragged edge. 300hp will do fine for me :)

Getting a bit greedy. 300hp ATW :)
