    Car blew up a few months ago with 155k on her and 370ish to wheels with a CS Turbo and e30. It vented the block and I am in the process of rebuilding. This will be a slow adventure as I have a daily driver so I am not in a hurry. I will update as I can. This is where she sits now. I have never built a motor before so this will be an adventure for sure.

    The plan for this build will be to max out the CS with JMF PI. I am also thinking of going with an s5 and selling the CS but I kinda want the spool of the CS. We will see , I can always upgrade later. I would like to get the CS exhaust mani if it ever actually comes out as well.

    Maybe his car currently looks like a Do Not Enter sign.

    So far I have gotten the fluids drained, headlights and bumper removed. I also pulled the intake and battery.

    I also recently installed some new LED lights above that stall which are awesome and very easy to install. I only have 6 of the 8 going in that pic.

    I also got some goodies in the mail.

    I also found a block in WI that I will be picking up this weekend it comes with a head and a machined crank for 600$ so not too shabby. I thought about using the crank but was told it's not worth messing with over sized bearings and it seems everyone and there mom has a crank lying around plus mine might be ok. I also picked up an engine stand and borrowed a lift / leveler from a buddy. I have not found where the hole is in my block but I have found pieces of metal that look like block. None of the fluids looked like they had mixed so not sure what that means. It looks to be behind the intake somewhere.

    I am heavily awaiting that manifold. The teaser they posted a week or so ago has me really eager for it. Looks like a quality piece and they say pricing will be competitive... So here I sit.

    RiP the JD Meat-Machine for now.

    Why JMF PI setup and not a Damond ST PI setup? I know they're a similar price all in but if you're going for a "small" turbo the ST mani might be more well suited for that.

    Yes, I am on the fence about using it as it is ghetto jbwelded but I did test it at 40 psi for 1 hour and it held up no issues. So..... I felt more comfortable sending it on the stock motor as I was expecting it to blow but I never got a chance to use it. So......

    Well I got the spare head torn down to the buckets, this is all new to me so bear with me. I will keep posting pics that don't really matter as in the assembly they may matter lol. Here she is all gross. Was really easy to take apart not in the car and with air tools. It did have spare injectors #winning
