Got SRT waterpump in the mail today, also took the good tires that were on the bronze R/T rims and put them on the 2 silver ones I had so they all match now lol. Also getting a set of ARP head studs from a guy on the .org this week.

w00t, just got Megatune downloaded and installed on this laptop, time to start hooking up wires (already run to the dash for the main sensors needed) and I can start viewing crap. Once my wideband arrives, it's time to hook up fuel and then spark :)

Head studs on their way here. All I really need now is crankscraper, pistons (just gonna use SRT pistons cuz I can get 4 for under 100 bux, should be able to get 10.5:1 out of them), wideband needs to be put together, and other minor things.

Also picked up the 3.94 trans I needed with the Phantom Grip.

Also have a buddy with a 3.94 that has an OBX installed that I'm gonna get in exchange for some cam gears.

Parts list is almost complete and we start engines class Wednesday I think.

So it looks like I may be picking up a white 97 ACR coupe rolling shell to put this project in. And also looks like I'll be trading my 3.94 w/Phantom Grip for a complete direct port nitrous kit. :)

Well brought engine to school this week. It's a shame, I only have one class left this semester, it sucks balls. ~4 hours a day, 5 days a week. We spend our whole time in the shop working on our engines. I mean, he makes me work on my 2.4. How shitty is that? :lol:

Tore it most of the way down today, bottom end is still semi-assembled. Bedplate, crank, and rods/pistons are still in. Need to measure crank thrust and how much play the #1 rod has in it, looks to be around 1/16" up and down in the cylinder with the crank not moving. That's prolly the one with the spun bearing :lol:

Will find out tomorrow. Once I get the bores measured and crank as well, I'll figure out what bearings and pistons I need. Hopefully it doesn't need an over bore, cuz then I'll use stock SRT pistons and deck the block a bit to bring the domes up in the cylinders ala PT cruiser style.

Next month or so will be spent dis-assembling, cleaning, and measuring EVERYTHING and ordering the rest of the minor parts I need, then assembly in December. Still not sure if I'm gonna end up putting it in the black car, or if I'm getting the white ACR coupe from sgt craig and putting it in there. Oh well, I don't care what car it goes in, it'll be fast :)

Oh I also replaced the crash bar that was pushed down a bit with the good one from the parts car. Bumper fits MUCH better now. Just need to adjust fender/door so they don't hit and figure out WTF is going on with the driver's window since it looks like something broke or came detached.

Head is torn apart and cleaned. We gotta measure everything even though I know it's getting new valves (1mm OS SS), seats, and seals.

Talked to Ed Peters today for about an hour on the phone, got a hookup on bearings and stuff, and looks like I've found a set of front SRT seats for cheap, not what I planned to get but that's how it goes....

Lol, come get them. $400 takes them lol. I like them but it wasn't exactly budgeted. I'll use the cash to buy a crankscraper and the parts from Ed. :lol:

Otherwise I have 2 sets of red R/T squiggle seats if you'd want a set of them. :lol:

your "hotter" cam is only worth 4-5 hp..... you can gain a hell of alot more by going to a crane 14 combine that with a ported and polished head and a long tube youll have a decent beast for sure.

We canceled the trade on the SRT seats, he has emissions so MS won't work for him. Good, I didn't feel like soldering another one up.

I do however have 2 sets of red R/T squiggles. $150 picked up takes them. Or trade for a good 2.4 crank/bottom end lol.
