No thanks brother, I love the car but I'd rather do all the work myself and learn in the process then buy a already modded car. Wait...why the hell would you sell it anyway if you put all that time, effort and money into it?? Also, that video is BAS ASS brother!!

This is my new list and Plann. I am going to part my project together.
I don't want to rush this and regret it later!.
SO here goes my LIST.


- CP Pistons w/ rings & wrist pins.....500.00
- Rods w/ Arp studs.................329.00
- Kelford Camshafts........................1025.00
- Valve train.......................329.00
- 1mm over valves...................265.00
- ARP head studs....................100.00-175.00
- Gaskest...........................250.00-300.00
- Water injection...................279.00
- 860cc injectors...................125.00
- 255 Fuel pump......................85.00
- Lightened crank pully.............117.00
- Lighting Flywheel.................100.00-250.00
- AFPR..................................100.00


- Bearings...........................??.??
- Port & polish.....................???.??
- Balanceing to 9k rpms.............???.??


Then there will be the Install of the pistons and rods and the Camshafts AND valvetrain.
I am also gonna have the machine shop bolt the heads onto the block for me along with the camshafts.

Then the shop is chargeing me 1145 to, well, PULL the motor out and swap parts and install the new motor.

Then I get the Car towed to PDX for a FREE base map, to break in the motor and Then GO back for a FULL tune on a BIG 16g. ( TILL I can afford a BIGGGG turbo)

SOOOOOOO please comment on this set up !!!!
am I missing anything OR forgetting something??

I want to till I get a SOILD plann.

after my recent development (cracked Bore) I discovered that the 2.5 blocks are becoming more and more increasingly prone to cracking.. My engine builder said he had a few sitting in his shop waiting sleeves just like mine is soon to be.. Get some quality sleeve installed by a tried and trusted builder.. The with what you have listed you will have a totally buttoned up bottom end..

Also I have been researching Injection as of late and and I found that injecting water into the engine is destroying rod bearings.. Careful with this idea..

sounds like you're getting on the right track. Personally, I'd never want to do the internal work though. I'd just buy one of those nice PDX motors...
