Default The "never-getting-done" 16VT 242

So I believe I made mention of this in my past build thread for the "Back burner 242" which is now actually the junkyard shell 242 (I.e. it's crushed... bye ).

The old:(https://forums.tbforums.com/showthread.php?t=203720)

The new: (but also, very old) Got this on October 9th, 2011 and didn't do anything with it. Oops.

Building the motor:

This process only took like 5 years. LOL


Got some Wiseco pistons, and Rods from RSI before they went away. >_<

Had to get the old junky B21 out:

So dirty and sad looking.

As you can see there are some "bids" written on the windshield. The car sat for so long that people (friends) started making bids on the car and how much I would let it go for.

Now onto cleaning the engine bay up, and getting it welded:(This happened almost 3 years ago now. Then my Subaru blew up and that consumed all of my money/time/motivation/effort)

Mounts made and tacked:



Aluminum es mi favorito

Cool project. Why'd you decide to mount it vertically?

Mostly because it's a little different. Adds a little flair. In hindsight though, I would have had this car running (maybe lol) a little bit sooner had I just used OEM mounts. A big hold up I struggled with for a while was driveline angle and motor angle.

With the help of some friends providing some much needed motivation, we kinda just decided to do it and see what happens.

Unfortunately my next hurdle will be keeping motivation, and after that praying the guy who did the work on the block bores wasn't on crack when he did it :-)

Engine bay painted:



The Infamous Nathan double injector manifold held up:


Also, going to be adding a steering quickener, kind of always wanted one so we'll see how it works out. 1:1.5



Pulled the windshield out:






Very annoyed with the T4 collector I got from Vibrant:



Also, cut a hole in the floor to get rid of a rusty spot in the floor:

I did the same thing on my car, and ended up making my engine mounts a little off center somehow. Pretty annoying to have to figure out those driveline angle problems.

Your build looks great.

Looks like you're using ARP main studs. What did you do to get the oil pump transfer tube to clear?

That's a good question, it's been put together so long I don't even remember anymore. I feel like we shimmed the pump up (technically down). But it was really close, and it didn't seem to be a big issue at the time.

Are you having this issue now??

No, but I replaced the one stud with an arp bolt to get the clearance I needed.
