Going to call out warzone already i'm essentially doing this build because of him.
So heres the car when i first bought it.



At this part i was just trying to catch up with the maintenance.
Did the 120k cam seals, front crank seal, Timing belt, idler pullies etc etc..

First mod was a cai and trying to clean up the engine bay a bit



Clutch went out so picked up an exedy stage 1 clutch, Competition clutch 14lbs chromoly flywheel, Did the clutch damper delete, Ran a braided clutch line,
Then half way through putting it back together decided screw it and did the vr4 front end conversion,install coilovers,drilled rotors, ceramic pads, braided brake lines from 3sx, motul brake fluid. And replaced the control bushings with poly. Honestly just because cost a ton and a took a long time to source the parts. No idea why i went with red on the trans but steam cleaned it sanded ti down and painted it because it was getting corroded and thought why not? Im in AZ with no garage so doing anything sucks balls in 120 weather




After all this installed the new wheels i bought before the clutch went out and i made a mid build decision to do a conversion so of course i needed spacers to make the wheels fit with the Stealth TT calipers.




Then went and had a 2.5in single exit exhaust made


Currently doing headers, IMR intake plenum, q45 TB, and 3.5in Cai to adjust for the new TB.

Update on the Headers,wideband,chrome ecu, IMR intake plenum and 90mm Q45 tb

Would be done with it already if my intake manifold would get here soon. Should be this week. Then will be headed for a tune for now. Then ill sit down and learn Chrome. Have the software and tactrix cable w.adapter for the tune. Wideband is wired into the ecu. Just need the manifold to finish

oh yea got more pics. Im not familiar with the intake manifold either. IMR is having to fabricate a 1-off intake manifold due to a website issue and the one they were selling wasn't the one i bought so they took down my specs like q45 flange in oem location, Short runners, Circular surge tank, Its supposed to be very similar to the dynamic racing one.

Took her to the IFO in chandler. Didnt expect to win anything i enter the competition just to be involved.

Figured id drop an update and a pic.Installed the intake manifold and the 90mm TB a while back and It was totally worth the wait. Only slight problem is i have traction issues all over the place now. With the solid engine mounts and the abrupt response it does beat you up a bit on take off. Its a riot. Now on to the next mod. Im able to grab either some BC cams and get the head build done (Cams,Gears,uodated lifters,3sx Hi-rev springs and retainers,P&P,+1mm oversized valves) or grab a Quaife lsd. Nothings been bought yet. Suggestions on whether to go for cams or the lsd? Both will ultimately be done just a matter of which one to do first.

Also Forgot to add all these parts in for the build as well lmao. A full set of Ferrea competition plus +1mm intake and exhaust valves. And supertech viton valve stem seals. So yea its a full top to bottom engine build along with a full head port and polish. Pistons are .040 oversized. And going to port and polish the entirety of the intake manifold. And if i can manage it i'm Reworking the intake manifold to something along the lines of this for more power up top.

So pulled the engine to begin the build. Go it torn down atm. Going to Need a bit of machine work for the pistons and i'm porting&polishing the heads/intake manifolds in the meantime.
Heading to Orlando for a vacation haven't had 1 in like 8 years. Once i'm back sending the block and heads to get the machine work done. Mostly boring for .040 for the pistons, Valve job for the Ferrea valves, Balancing the crank, Trueing the head&block. Then on to reassembly.

So got an update. Got the heads and crank back from the machinist. Crank got turned .25mm or .010in and rebalance with the new bottom end. Heads were resurfaced and had the new +1mm valves, bronze valve guides, BC hi-rev springs ,titanium retainers, and supertech stem seals installed so full valve job and resurface. Cost for the machine work was $1000 .$720 for the heads and $300 for the crank.

Ok quite a lot more updates to post. Engine has been completely assembled and dropped in. Now installing it in the car.




Swapped out the oem Timing pully with the non-adjustable one after this photo was taken. Came off a 2001-2004 kia optima v6. And new idler puller.




Still need to Put the trans in, Then drop the rear motor mount to get the longtubes back on the studs..Yea should caught that while dropping it in but I didnt. Got a set of deatschewerks 550cc injectors in and a warlboro 255 lph fuel pump installed. Need to get the flex fuel sensor installed, But atm finishing up getting the engine primed then buttoned up. And yea did the Piston-valve clearance using some clay. Kind of a pain having to reassemble the engine twice, but oh well.
