Its going to be a while before I finish it. The plan wasnt to start buying parts until Feb but with 50% off at autotech combined with the deals on the Quaife and TarOxs I had to snatch up these good deals.
February and March is going to be the big spending months.
So it was an icy Saturday so Tim (05JettaGLXVR6) Joe (Spitfire481) and I went up to the shop to work on my motor.
Tim did most of the work because in all honesty, he has a 800hp+ @~40psi VRT so figured hes a good resource to learn from.
Got the CAMs, HD lifters and springs, new /water pump, ARP Studs, head spacer and timing chains done today so for all intensive purposes the motor is built. Tim also has the trans and LSD and is working on making them one in his spare time.
Good thing we did the chains because the top guide had broken and there was a piece of plastic just bouncing around in there. It already had a metal water pump in it, unknown to anyone, but I had already bought one so I put it in and Tim was happy to take the used one.
Took a few pictars
out with the old...
Not bad for seeing the motor sight unseen and never seeing/hearing it running...
Making a spring compressor tool.
Spring compressor in action!
New cams in... if u notice the error, it was fixed.
I cant wait for it to be done but I am taking my time and learning how to do it right the first time and not just slap together something just to have it done. Hopefully it will be done and in for SoWo but if its not Ill just ride down with Joe. Next update will prob be mid/end of Feb when we pull the 2.0 and start doing a mild engine shave.
Alex u missed it though. Went to Advanced to get RTV in Carroll Island... I walked in "Hey I need some RTV" dude just stands there puzzled and starts to motion that he was going to his computer to look up what i was asking for.
Me: "you know like thread locker"
Him: "oh ok red or blue"
Me : "Red"
Him: "Ok follow me"
So we get to the aisle and he hands me super glue... like just regular super glue, I looked at him like he had 3 heads and just said thanks and found what i needed myself.

lololol that is like when I went to advanced auto parts to get a fitting to fix my coolant hose.
I told them I needed a dual sided fitting that was male on both ends. he kept pulling hose clamps off of the shelf. so, I walked away and went to home deepthroat.
