Dropped the engine off at the machine shop at 9am, got off worked and picked it up at 6pm. The engine is bored out to 3.8", honed, and cleaned.



too bad i wasted time painting it, just so the paint could be cleanned off.



Oh well, not a big deal.

Also have some nice clean parts for the build:







Tomorrow it goes together... I hope.

So its Sunday night and I feel like a total moron for not getting the most important thing... Rod bearings. So the engine got some new paint, the pistons and rods and thats about it.

Damn, I knew i was forgetting something else. Sorry.

The rods are forged 158mm H-beams from RSI. (6 MM longer then stock)

The pistons are forged Wiseco 96.5mm set up for use with a 16 valve head, also ordered from RSI, and the crank shaft is from a 89 AQ171C, meaning that its forged and 2.5 liter.

After its all built it will be a 2.51 liter engine

w00w00! What's the measured and planned for compression ratio? I saw a stock headgasket in there, did you get the block machined for the pistons to stick out a certain amount or do you have a Cometic hiding somewhere for tight squish?

Kyles lying his real ride is sitting behind the engine block in his pic with the pistons in lol I'm glad to see this thing finally making progress. RSI took way too long to get those pistons and rods to you but in the end it will pay off and we'll have some white 244 on white 744 action going on.

Worked on the engine tuesday night and tonight rocking out to some dubstep. Got the crank and all the bearings in. The bottom end is now assembled and spins nice. Rick and I stole the intermediate shaft from the original engine from my 240 last weekend. Tonight I cleaned it, lubed it up, and shoved it in... and I also installed the intermediate shaft...

Worked has snapped to a stop because I thought it would be ok to use 20 + year old bolts on my engine and I ended up snaping one off in the front seal/flex plate. Tomorrow I will head to fastenal and get some new bolts and a extracter for my drill.

Dont have any clue what the CR will be because I am doing things ass backwards. I ran out of money and will be slapping on a stock rebuilt 8 valve head with a stock head gasket to get it running. However I promise that I will get the 16 valve in with a cometic gasket once I get a larger credit line .

Also as far as squish...





And this picture just gives me dirty thoughts

Awesome, thanks a lot!

This is the car that got me into cars and I have learned so much abusing this poor thing.

Well the abuse is far from over. I hope to race it at 1/4 mile track, road tracks, and rally races.

The first stage will be a 2.5 liter 8 valve with a 15g turbo and a mustang T5 world class transmission.

The second stage involves removing the 8 valve head and installing the 16 valve head with the Penta PZ cams. It will also need its suspension replaced, but thats a tax refund away

also did some cleaning today.

Received the 3/4 " tap and AN fittings to do the oil return line today. Had to remove some material from the block before tapping it.



Getting closer, just need more time.

This is a picture my mom took back in 1992 of my brother Jason (RIP) taking the 91 244 to prom.

These old pictures make me want to stay up all night and work on the car.

Appreciate the compassion, I have a lot of memorys in this car and it makes me happy to see it finally going in the right direction. Still have a long check list of things to get and assemble.

-T5 adapter plate from RSI
-clutch
-switch over to a hydrolic clutch setup

-install ipd panhard bar
-install IPD torque arms
-finish installing super pro poly bushings (started 8 years ago!)
-wire up gauges, lights, horn.
-hook up IAC
-button up the exhaust
-maybe find 2 more eiker E1s ?????????

really it all comes down to time and money.
