    Well...here it is.

    All rod bearings replaced. It wasn’t too bad.
    Spec is 0.0011-0.002

    Rod 2

    As you can see...shit was on the money. Couldn’t ask for better clearances.


    Got it buttoned up.

    Cold start: 100psi
    Dropping quickly to 60psi
    By 140f: 40psi
    By 180f(not even operating temp): 10-14psi
    By 195f: 8-12psi


    She’s done. Something somewhere is fucked. Something is bleeding off pressure. Not sure what it could be. Maybe mains. Maybe cam journals. No idea.

    rod journals were all mint. 0 contact made of any sort. They were clean clean.

    Motor will get pulled and sent to a machine shop to be reworked remeasured and blueprinted. Let’s find out where the pressure went. Maybe my second oil pump here went bad again. Who knows. This is wild.

    Gonna daily / track this while the Mazda is down. It’s slow. Makes like 1 torques but fuck it is absolutely a drivers car. Pedal placement is awesome for them good heel toes.
    Taking the car home on Sunday to begin upgrading it for the track. Brakes and brake fluid for now. Then off to the track. I’ll be racing it as is. It classes VERY low but if I can hoon it like I do my Mazda it will be very quick.

    car has intake, cat back, upgraded injectors and flashpro. Makes 214whp and 158wtq. Revs to infinity(8800rpm)
