Holy old thread Batman!
Yeah the client scrapped the project since he wanted an e30. Traded the car before we got the turbo installed.
The new engine is at the machine shop for align boring, bore/hone piston bores, decking and rotating assy balance to 9k. Started with an m50 block, s50 rods/crank.
8.5:1 forged pistons, ARP everything, Cometic gasket, 48gm lifters, heavy valve springs, Fidenza 13lb FW, ACT PP/disk, t70 turbo, Emusa I/C, 42mm gate yadda yadda....
Probably should make a new thread about it?
