a restrictor, whatever you can find/make that doesnt give the full 3/8 line of oil to the head. in the stock block the restrictor is .140" so use that as a max

Most including myself use the neon gasket since it's a nice multi layer steel gasket instead of the composite TD style gasket.

I have a few pics from mock-up but not the end result.
As for the knock sensor in pic #4, don't put it there. mine just melted.
Currently looking for a new location for my new sensor.

ok thanks!! what size fitting are those?
and i cant see your fuel rail, but what are you using for that?
how did you plug the stock oil drains in the block? and do you have to block any water ports off or anything like that? i know how to tig so the head is easy, but i cant figure out the block..

The drain fittings are -8an, I consider it to be the minimum. -10 wouldn't hurt.

The fuel rail is off a Stratus, so is the intake and valve cover.

For the block modifications just drill and tap. I used square head pipe plugs (3/8" I think) to block the 3 oil drains. I also plugged the oil supply port (1/8" I think) and drilled the crankcase pressure equalization passage so it would line up properly with the head.
Do this before you get your block deck machined.

I don't use the cmp sensor either, it's actually not there anymore. It leaked oil anyway.:mad:

I ran a stock T1 smec until I got the turbo on now I socketed my smec and use a D-cal calibration. 89_T1_MTX_3-Bar_SwBst_CE_+40 is the one I use, haven't needed to modify it yet.
If you can get a 16v hybrid running the you can also socket your own ecm!:thumb:

And just to compare distributor clearance, the Stratus intake looks roomier underneath.



Sorry for the big post!:eek:

hey another question...ok on the head did you guy plug it from the bottom or top? becuse i was looking at it today and it looks like you can plug it from the top...or will it keep the head cool if i plug from bottom?

and i DONT have to mess with the coolant passages at all?

I plugged mine from the bottom, it's just easier to do I though. Make sure it's well sealed though cause I think mines leaking a bit.

You don't need to touch the cooling passages but I did port to match the neon head gasket.
