Build time!

Been running with a digital boost controller, centerforce pressure plate, three inch mandrel exhaust, ported intake and exhaust, and large throttle body.

Now the engine has no oil pressure so I grounded it, literally!





Going to blueprint the heck out of this thing!

Probably going to add some sort of a cal, 3bar, wideband, and +40's.

Thoughts? Advice?

:)

Re: Build time!

what engine is it, a 2.2 or 2.5? is it pre 89? if so i would bemove the bs, go .20 or .30 over. ok i noticed your sig says 89 2.5. i would not make it a 2.2. i would see if you could work on that block being its a common block.

It's an 88 2.2 turbo 2 engine and an A 523

I removed some B.S. from it earlier. Turned out to be axle grease...

This car has been a project already for many years. This is just the next level!

Definitely wanting to go .030 like my last motor build.

Re: Build time!

Had some more time to tear down today:









#3 rod has too much play. Going to see what the crank looks like tomorrow.

130000 mile engine never split till now. Oil was weeping slowly from old gaskets on the valve cover and oil pan.

I discovered the distributor drive has some free play in it between the timing belt intermediate shaft and the distributor rotor.

Re: Build time!

The crank is safe! I quit driving it as soon as oil pressure problems showed up so the rod bearing took the only wear, as it should.






Going to check the rod for clearance and see if it needs resized or if new bearings will do the trick.

Then I may have it honed. Not sure on boring it out. Dont want to be hunting for pistons.

Re: Build time!

The clevite bearings are too soft, always showing the copper even at low milage, I use bimetal like fedaral mogul or sealed power, every time ive used clevite bearings on a td this is what they look like and i for one dont like metal particles floating around in my engine, not to mention the added clearance that reduces oil pressure, stick with what was factory installed and proven on cars that have gone 200k plus miles.

And as far as boring .020 or .030 your only talking a half a cubic inch difference so just bore the minumum amount needed to get a nice bore and that way the block can be machined again later on down the road.

That crank journal looks rough to me but maybe its just the pic.
Also looks like some antifreeze burning in cyl 2 and 3

Thats what I was thinking. Going to just power hone it.

This car typically floods pig rich from a map gremlin.
