b230ft in place of b230f so the 9.8:1 doesn't kill everything

90* fittings are 2.5" intercooler is 3".

I don't have the capibilty to weld aluminum anyways.

I did order more of those cast elbows though - they're so much better than the 90*s that come in the kits.

The other side of the garage is cleared of the girlfriend's car. I bought two engine stands saturday. I'll be cleaning both motors and gasketing the new one in preparation for insertion

Edit; easy question without searching:
M14x1.5 for the oil feed from the block on b230ft?

You don't have money to pay for welding? too bad. should have got 3" elbows, weld them on, then use the 3-to-2.5 reducer on the end of the elbow. No reason to get those thick cast elbows otherwise, could just use plain 'ol aluminum tubing there, costs less.

Probably. I'm pretty sure that's what the B230FT I don't have would have if I had one.

Yeah 3" elbows would've been a good idea.

Too late now - more are on the way

Something broke on it. It cranked funny and spits the dipstick tube out.

All happed after it pinged at like 28 psi.

It ran fine, it was just slower and you could hear *missing* compression while craking. Never did a compression test because I'm a fat lazy ****.


Real motor - knox is almost done my intake and nathan will have my exhaust done in a week. RSI cams are down at Knox and are all shimmed up I'm told.

Now I need to go down there and assemble it. Hopefully a spring install.

If it's cheaper to do it once the right way, it's much cheaper to do it not the right way 5 times.

He's trying to install as many engines and transmissions as the car has had owners.

A blessing from Brett can only sustain so much before the redblock parts.

OK, I think I'm done for now.
