Default Engine Rebuild Part#2

Ok, phase 1 was getting the head ready, now on to phase 2, turbo replacement. Got all new gaskets and re-assembled manifold/turbo set up. Next step is piston rings, will hopefully be posting that sooner rather than later.

Well, the porting requires money that i do not have, i really need a running car. Nail, not sure i understand what specific parts your looking for, but here is what i got. New Garrett T3 turbo, Full set of Hastings piston rings, ARP head studs, Chipped P28 running CROME.

Skunk2 intake manifold. The intake side is new, the reducer on the charge pipe side is from the old one.

Whewww, got all pistons out finally. Luckily the ring lands were not damaged, so i got lucky there. Just ordered new hastings rings for it, and will be cleaning up the pistons over next couple days. Cleaned up the block to, turned out nice.
