  • Turbo wagon plus DOHC - Running!!

    This spring i started my DOHC build finally.

    Plan is to do a mostly stock rebuild and keep the boost a flowing.

    Currently the block is all torn down, mostly cleaned. Pistons are on the way. DOHC 20 thou. over, speed pro hypers. Stock rods.
    Head still needs valves removed. Will receive dual intake cams, new valve seals (maybe a valve job), flatten mating surface, and replace valves that got fucked by bits of piston being removed from the engine. Also clean up combustion chamber and if there is time, port match at least the exhaust runners.

    From looking at the SOHC manifold i think i will have to weld on a new flange, i don't believe there is enough metal to drill 3 new holes (lower two should line up)

    Might send the turbine section out to Jet-hot to get high temp silver.

    Now for pictures.



    ^--Those don't look so good.

    ^--That looks horrible. Note the very DEEP groove the bearing cut into the crank. Add new crankshaft to the list.

    ^--Here's where most of the bits of piston landed... couple valves have some serious dings in them.

    ^Before

    ^Before

    ^lots of scrubbing and the back of the block is pretty clean. Now to the inside and front.

    More to come.

        cool, your going to love it. Not so sure about the dual intake cam with boost though. I've known some to do it in a n/a app and it's nice low and mid range but, falls off fast on top end.

            Will do. Just no dodgeball the day before this time!
            Motor was abused and put away wet...

            I took a "before" picture of the way the wagon sits now, post it up later this week.
            Hope i can get it done before the autox season is over.

                  quick update:
                  Ship date was suppose to be 5/30. that came and went. Date changed to 6/23!!! Fuck. gave them a call and told the guy at Summit to call federal mogul and get a definitive date they would ship. He calls back and tells me "they had changed the model number, we actually have them in stock." WOW, so i just waited 5 weeks for something they have in stock....either way they are in a brown truck currently! Block is cleaned and ready to deliver to the machine shop!!

                  yay. finally some progress coming!

                        You should bitch loudly at someone higher up and make them reimburse you for shipping.

                            im to passive for that i guess. Just glad they are on the way. it was like 50$ cheaper from summit versus rock auto or IPP.

                            They are in NY tonight..should have them tuesday at the very latest!!

                              Lookie Lookie what the brown truck brought.





                              Got em tuesday night, took out and ooooh'd and ahhh'd at em, dropped the block and pucks of at the shop this afternoon, should be about a week. They are also going to throw the mics on my crank so i can check against the specs and order my main and rod bearings and rings. so i can complete "Phase One" which is the short block.

                              Phase two will be the head work. Valve seals, clean the combustion chamber and ports, replace valves that are beat and machine work.

                              Phase three will be the remaining assembly. Timing chain, oil pump, valve cover, oil pan, and accessories.

                              More pictures to come with progress.
