Still no employment as of now, but am doing well. Haven't enrolled into any schools yet either. Thankfully did a little bit of savings, so I can still play a little.
the great news: MOTOR BUILD HAS STARTED!!!!!!
I finally went ahead and decided on 82mm pistons, for a Corrado correct 2.9l displacement.
Made a call to James @ Four Season an chatted about options and after a brief talk decided to go with the Wiseco forged 82MM,10:5 to 1 comp for a final comp ratio of 11.0 to 1 with a MK4 metal H/G. (Using a 8.5 to 1 H/G spacer later should I decide to run boost at a final comp ratio of 9.0 to 1 when I am ready)
Full ARP kit, Main and Head Studs, as well as Rod bolts,
All new bearings, Mains, Rods, and Intermediate shaft. Shot Peened stock rods, so it will be safe to say bulletproof bottom end?!?!?
I tore down a cylinder head and will be sending it to the machine shop for love. Once the parts get here, they will also be balancing the crank, and having the machine shop install the new intermediate bearings and crank, and then taking it home for the rest of the assembly process by me.
I am shooting to have the car back on the road for Winter Jam in February, and just might pull it off!!!
Wish me luck!!!
