Sounds good, will let you know when I get that far.
Are you going to asseamble the short block or are you going to let a machiene shop do that part?
Are you worried that you bought pistons before knowing what the blocks bore will be machiened to?
What do you plan on for fueling? Just a pump uograde then tee ut off from the HPFP or are you going full on return setup with a fpr?
I will be assembling it all , I have watched a ton of videos on it and as long as stuff is in spec it doesn't really look to hard. This is part of the adventure.
I am not worried, the block I bought was a stock motor that spun a rod bearing and the walls all look great. If worse for worse I could sell them and come out even. I plan to have the block bored out to 88 and decked
I have not fully decided on fueling yet. I would either like to go with Aeromotive 325 Stealth in tank and T it to the PI rail. My other option would be to put a 2.5 gallon cell where the battery is and just fill it with straight corn. This would require me to move the battery but that is not a big deal. I would not have to do mixing if I did that which is nice but also a lot more custom work. Either way I will be using PTFE lines as they seem like the best bet for e85 and secure nicely. If I do the in tank pump I will be also doing a flex fuel sensor so I can see what my mix is.
Updates: Took the starter off and found the rod peaking its head out. It took a little chunk out of the starter too.
Dat rod be like
Thread title is misleading; OP has not yet had to sell his children to fund this project.
It's a shout out to KJ on the facebooks any bolt on turbo is poverty turbo according to him lol. Maybe I will change the name a couple more times.
KJ loves having multiple in and around his mouth at all possible times.
Is this build finished yet?
Yep just made 900 whp.
OP is slacking for sure!
