If I can find some dated picture of my cluster I could be sure on miles but since '09 I would guess at least 30k miles.

Update is taking head to shop today to get milled and some turbo valves thrown in and once it comes back start to reassemble. I also took apart my scrap 531 for the good springs that I will swap into another spare 530 I have here. Once it runs I have to get to the dyno and track before it gets hot out along with rumors of local tracks closing down.

After that I have to figure $ out as this year is shaping up to be a tough one.

Can you post some pics of your head, please?

And sorry for my noobism, but what's so special with the 200R4 gearbox? I don't know it...

The head going in is just a bone stock head, nothing special

The 200r4 is an older gm transmission, while being a semi similar 4 SPD auto setup it is a little larger and can hold a heck of a lot more power than an aw71. Cheaper and easier to rebuild and get parts for.

You must of forgotten that this 531 has 9+ cracks in the head and leaks coolant Into #3 overnight through these cracks. Thank you very much Volvo as they are semi common on certain year auto heads. Unless you want to give me your 531 to put on.

Last time I checked Kris had my big valve 531 up for sale for cheap...would be a nice upgrade with the bigger exhaust and was completely rebuilt. New guides and seats.

Head is back, Going to see about cleaning up the block tomorrow and then maybe get the head back in place in the next day or so after. From there I need to take my time and Reshim the cam properly and get all of the little stuff reinstalled. I will take my time and shoot for next week (at the latest) to get it running again as Sat Afternoon I am semi busy along with Sunday is SuperBowl.

Head is on motor ..... Cam is shimmed.... And I forgot the cam seal... So off comes the timing belt doh

I will get a few pics up later today if I find time. Tomorrow is the other big time waster of getting all of the exhaust stuff back on along with intake. Lots of little nuts and bolts and bits.

Got the block cleaned as much as i want to put out effort



Head bolted up and waiting for the fun of shimming the cam, only took like 4 times to finally get it right as my old shims were all way big compared to what was needed.


Clean


Timed and cam bolted in place



No real new update here as I put on the Thermostat housing and just tossed the vc on to see if it looked bad enough that I wanted to repaint or not



Made zero progress today, I did pick up the steel I needed to redo some of my oil return line along with the steel needed to bend new trans cooler lines but I might not get to the later just yet as I semi need to rush getting this car fixed as the BMW is now leaking coolant so I need this running so I can get that one in the garage and fixed.
