2.34L build

So I have some parts lying around the garage and the wife wants me to "clean it up." So I am considering doing another 2.34L build, just the shortblock for now, and will use this thread as a means of showing the build progress.
I happen to have a used, but in great condition 2.0L crank, 05STi block and a set of STi rods. Other than a bore and hone the block is in great shape and the rods were reconditioned units I got in a trade. So I will need some pistons, rings, bearings and other odds and ends.

Now with that being said the build will be slowed due to me having to work 2 jobs and an up coming surgery that will have me unable to do things for a couple of weeks. I will push forward and make it happen. I will sell this one to someone, who knows maybe one of the guys on here will that keep blowing motor will want it... I'll post some pictures when I get home tonight from work.

Arrange to meet up half way and buy the guy dinner or something... That's what I did when I got my block I'm using in my build... Turned an 8 hour drive into 4.

He lives further than that. He only wants to drive an hr away. I'm trying to get him to do an hr and a half. It'd be killer if he'd do half way.

Paul, I don't need the block. Mine is already ordered. Justin can have it and it sounds like he needs one.

Well you could always just buy the shortblock off of me when it's done... I can hold my breathe from a pretty long time...
