    so this is my build thread... bought a 97 sl2m from the dealership for $200. cracked head, and a few missing parts, good deal though, sunroof, traction control, rear discs, abs, power everything.



    not bad color, wheels are crap, but its winter time so.

    had a few members come out to help with the initial teardown, got cold, we quit.



    got some toys for the springtime turbo build.








    and decided to rent a garage across the street from my house and have a few members come to help me where it was warm, prepped the head, had it decked and hot tanked, and then reinstalled everything and got to work.


    uncleaned head on kitchen table


    joe and mark wrenching


    and again...


    pulling the old head off.


    head off....mmmmmm carbon


    new head installed with SDA tam insert and shot dogbones.

    needless to say, the engine runs good, shakes like hell, and i now officially dislike traction control... will continue to post pics and updates as i go.

        Damn well better run well haha!

        That was a fun swap, glad we had the heated garage. Of course I'm in the engine bay for the stupidest of reasons, damn coolant line would not come off that intake!

                I meant to tell you, try and tighten up the nut under the bottom of the passengers side dogbone, the mount on the frame, should be like a 15mm bolt. Since that was sliding back and forth i'm sure that won't help haha. And yeh, that coolant line was being a real bastard.
