LOL, this wouldn't happen to be the 1.5" that lowes gave you like 100 pages back, which was the wrong stuff was it?

Aside from the little EG hatches and EP3s, EM2s are probably my favorite Honda chassis.

LOL - same stuff! Wasn't the wrong thing, just didn't need 10' of it for the dump tube I made.

Re: Page 200 = New Video! - Page 200 - The Speedfoos' Turbo Thread!!

Piston rings and my hood strut brackets arrived today! Woot!

But I have to paint a valve cover before I can mess with the rings.....grrr.
I'm painting a base coat on the cover for my mother-in-law to work from. She's going to do a little airbrushing on it, I can't wait. And it's done!







Bottom end is together now so it's just a matter of time before I shoehorn the motor back in. This will be the last stock bore rebuild on this block though. My rings barely needed to be gapped. Next rebuild will have to bored .020 over.

But anyway, pictures pictures.

Installed the pistons....




Torqued down the girdle and the rods, installed the oil pickup and dipstick guide...




And capped her off with the oil pan. Job done!

Thanks Scott! How are things at merry old Molesworth? Any plans to PCS back to the states? Galloway is still pimpin' the "V". He goes back and forth on a near daily basis about selling it, GSR swapping it (he already has the head and block) turboing it, or SCing it. It's almost comical.

England is ok, the dollar to pound exchange rate went down, so that helps with travel. However, I'm sick of my job. Being in an office for most of the day drives me crazy, but I am enjoying the slow ops tempo. Nikki and I are planning to PSC back to the states in January. We prefer something in the lower east coast, but we also wouldn't mind going to somewhere in the mid-west. As long as we get a place that has a good mission, location and a place for Nikki to work, I'll be happy.

What's holding back Galloway from committing on the engine swap?

How's North Carolina treating you?

This might be a noob question or maybe I just missed something in another post but, what are the extended studs for?

Honestly, not a whole lot. NHRA rules state that cars running a set time or below (can't remember) have to run extended, open bolt studs that the officials can quickly ensure that the studs aren't broken. I don't think my car will ever run that fast, but they were free so I put them on.

very nice clint. your a beast. i would never gather up enough motivation to work on my car for like a week straight. i HATE repairing/diagnosing cars, but i love modding them.

Great stuff dude. Always inspirational. So lets see.... you've probably rebuilt your engine more this past year then some people do in their lifetime! Well, I wouldn't be surprised if it was true.

I love that lighting airbrush. Different.

Keep up the good work, can't wait to see it when it's done. Cinematic sequences, aka videoz ftw.

A lot of the little stuff is gone, some big stuff, but I'm sure I'll have to look elsewhere to move the turbo, possibly the block and IM too.

She's getting completely parted out, everything being sold and then I'm going to cut up the carcass with a sawzall and sell it for scrap.
