      I have my doubt on 1000. But gabe, yours was impressive and will look forward too see how far you push it! I'd love to see 1000.

      We were not using a G60 bolt. We were using a bolt off of a Ford 6 Cyl that is the proper length to fully thread into the crank.

      Again, it is not a G60 ARP flywheel bolt. The G60 flywheel bolt, which is pictured here is shorter than the Ford flywheel bolts which I was using which is pictured here.

      Alright, so a couple pictures of the boxes and boxes of **** that's showed up:

      mushimoto


      -10an line, mp4303 pump, return-line fuel cooler. Walbro inline-for size reference


      Tial MVS for size reference. HY35 and PTE8285




      On to tear down. Oil pan off


      Windage tray off. You can see a bolt I missed that I'll have to weld back in to the tray. It was under a mound of sludge and even after double-checking holes, I still missed it. The tray popped right off around the bolt. No real effort was used to pull it off. Weird.


      Crank out



      02m quattro tranny modded to fit the 2.5 timing case. I was told you have to grind a **** ton off. It took about 20 seconds with a grinding wheel and 5 to clean it up with a tiger paw.




      Tranny on the crank case. It's a super tight fit




      Block, as it sits ready to go to the machine shop


      Next time I come home, I'm going to make an engine stand bracket that lets me bolt to the exhaust side of the block. I would have made one last night, but all I have is 1/2" steel square tube and 3/16 sheet steel. Not strong enough for me.

      Yeah, we have a problem here.....

      Made a stand for the 2.5 so that I can do the timing chains and not have to rest the block on the floor. It only took me about 10 beers to get this done.

      Summer is drawing closer, so lets bring this back up.

      Off topic:

      I found out TT's have a kanooter valve:


      I acquired some parts for a mk4 jetta awd swap:


      I broke something really expensive:


      and on topic, I picked up something that supra owners love that is really, really cool:


      stay tuned
