      As I found out today - if the cams were any bigger - they wouldn't fit in the head without work, plus the retainers that hold down the camshafts would have had to be machined as there's barely clearance as the pictures show.

      Belt is a 158 Tooth Conti Curvelinear II profile, still working on finalising the tensioner setup.

      The valve cover I have is polished, plus I bought the aluminim cover plates to allow me to fit the 16v wires from 034EFI already so I'll be sticking with this valve cover - thanks though. Yes I did order and purchase the Autotech IM shaft gear.

      Progress update - timed the crank/cam/distributor today. Then cranked over the motor by hand 2 times. Turned over freely - but peeking down the intake ports; it's scary the clearances in there when the piston comes up. Should have the ITB flange done by Fri evening (I hope) will update when that is done. Radiator is mounted, most of the coolant hoses are hooked up / fabbed.

      So the delay has been related to the intake - finally got it fabbed today. Then commenced the 3 hours of grinding and porting to make everything as nice as possible. Car will be started Monday due to weekend social engagements (wedding of best friend). Stay tuned - in the meantime here are some pics.

      External Mocal oil cooler mounted.

      MK4 2.0L lower hose to go across to radiator spout

      Lower end of downpipe

      Race-Shop Joe porting the welded intake.

      Horns

      More horns

      Even more horns

      Parting shot

      Hey, that's me.

      Good luck getting it running next week. I'll be thinking about you as I sit in my lounge chair on a Dominican beach sipping my Coco Loco.

      what is the plan for a crankcase vent? since there is a block off plate on the block and IIRC the head doesn't have a vent?

      So the motor was started up yesterday. It runs - no bent valves or odd noises. However it seems with the compression I am running, I will need to vent both the block and the head (separately), because once the motor builds up pressure under load it is seeping oil from the oil seals. Will report back after the block is vented.

      Hell yeah!!!

      Venting the block shouldn't be an issue, it will get all sorted out.

      I was smiling, but also a little worried that because of the clearances. Now that we have the fan wiring and the motor isn't tearing itself apart I am a little happier. Tuning this thing is going to be harder than sorting out the 8v, I can see it. I'll keep updating. PS - A1Crazy has video, if he makes an mpeg i'll link to it.

      Well, you have one foot in the door as Joe knows Nate fwell enough, could get you in the right direction as your build up is very similar to his first generation 20/20 engine. Maybe we can cash in a favor for helping yank and tear down the tranny to make the next round at Atco a few years ago.

      Update - drove the car home - appears the breather in the blockoff plate solved the oil seal seepage. Now the tuning begins.
