well i never had a build thread so i figure i make one since i am going to update my car over the winteri might as well document it from the begining to now :) So here is the story
So here we have the Block
it was nasty! needed to be cleaned and honed and the block needed to be decked
Here are the NASTY pistons and rods
The intake before it was washed and all those good things
O what fun that was. So after about 500 in parts and labor I started working on the motor
So here we have the block nice and cleaned out. Bored 30 over because two cylinders had some bad marks on it
and here is the other side
Here are the new pistons and rods
So now that i have all this cleaned up and new stuff i started to put it all together
so the crank was polished and checked no major damage done to it and all together and all clearance checked i was happy :D
the heads are stock and i had the intake cleaned and painted new cam bearings and the stock cam met the specs so i was able to put it all together
New pushrods and all the goodies
and here it is all together
now not pictured is my fully built T56 from Six Speed Inc. It was built with CF syncs gears to match my 4.10 rear end gears bronze pads, and all the great stuff in it!
Well i don't have many pictures of putting the motor in but i have a few pictures!
Lets start with the mouting bracket for the motor!
As you can see i beefed up the sway bar and tried my best to clean it up.
Whats not pictured was the rattle can spray job i did to the whole engine bay
Shifter in place looks like its Stock :)
So after a few hours and a lot of getting pissed off i i got the motor in!
Sorry for the blurry pics
new valve covers
Here is the video of the day I finally got it together and running!
YouTube - V8 FC
well the shifter was really tall so i got a short shifter and a hurst shift knob
So after all the work i finally got the chance to play it took me almost a full year to get everything together including losing the tranny and having to getting everything rebuilt cost me $1500 after the core so here is some
Here are the pics from the FC getting its new t56 it was so scary driving it home I had it at my Dads house and he helped me put it in!
I thought it was going to be a mess but we worked out pretty good and got it done fast!
So after all that i didn't to much to it but then i bought a house and she needed a new home :)
But when I got her home i got her some new shoes too, yes the shoes are right off a 2002 Mustang GT
So here is a video that my wife made famous, but I installed new shocks, springs and the new wheels and tires
YouTube - RX7 wih new wheels and setup
When i got it home I had a custom box made for my trunk and then I found some tail lights to make it look a little better
So I finally got the chance to play around with her on the track. So here is my first time Auto Crossing
YouTube - My first time Auto X
YouTube - First time at AUTO cross part 2
And then once I really got the hang of it this was my best time yet!
YouTube - my best first auto cross runs
So I can tell you I was a little scared and this was my first time racing! please the girls recording didn't know we can hear them :D
So I got use to it and I made a second run
look at that roll
What a blur..lol
