That looks great! I love how you're doing all the stuff I've been planning to do in my mind, it's a great reference :P!
I did get the later block with the 12 cops, the lower hp was emissions related, it shoul dhave the same potential as the earlier engine.

This is seriously the craziest build I've seen in years.

Keep it up!

Great to hear the measurement of 85cm is from the trans mounting face to the pulley.
I've seen it mentioned on forums before, but no one mentions from where to where the measurement is.
The m120 has a big part of the bellhousing attached to it so it's a bit different from most other engines.

Where in the netherlands are you located? I'm in Venlo myself.
Where in Japan did you buy the engine? And what was approx the price? I am looking kleinanzeigen a lot, but there aren't many engines for sale; and when they are, high mileage or big prices. Thx in advance! Kris (belgium)

Everything I could find even slightly local (I'm in the netherlands and was looking as far as switzerland at one point :P) were all very high mileage early engines.
Now I've got one with well under 100k kms and from a late model year for a bit under €2,5k.

Still adding a gate to the oil pan your capacity is going down and I didn't see one as I skipped from beginning to end and then went back read through and you said you were adding one, still planning to do so?

If so I was curious what it looks like.

Cool project, keep up the work!

Thanks! Yes, still planning to add one. I'm a bit busy with other things at the moment, but should have time to continue again in a week or 2. I plan on adding something very similair to what is in a stock B230 oil pan, I just had to finish the pick up tube first because it'll be a bit in the way

Thanks, it's been going pretty slow due to work and other things that needed to be done. Been working mostly on cleaning parts etc so I can put the engine back together. 48 valves are great, until you have to clean them all and replace 48 valve stem seals. I'm getting pretty close now to slapping the engine back together and putting it back in the car so I can start on the exhaust manifolds.

I forgot to take some before pics, just imagine everything black and covered in several mm of carbon deposits.

So many cylinders... even working on 24 valve engines is annoying! Keep on it!
