You've gotta work with what you've got, and top feed conversions all require hood modifications, not an option for me.

Outside of cost, there is nothing wrong with side-feed injectors.

Go to junkyard where you pick you parts and fool around, i've pick my part and messed around figuring out some basics.

Noob question, why the coats on the pistons?

It's supposed to insulate the piston from the heat of the combustion chamber, which is a life extender (especially in boosted applications).

I'm not sure to what extent it helps, but the coating was done by a local shop that deserves a little support.

It's been believed that coating the piston reduces the probability of hot spots on the piston that cause preignition

Preignition is what causes your engine to turn into a grenade.

To get the other turbo on, we had to do some creative modifications.

First, cut down the motor mount:


Then, grind the oil filter tree down a bit:


Finally, the fat fuck of a turbo fit!


Today, we're going to tackle timing components, but it's finally looking like an engine again:


Downpipes

Didn't take my camera down with me yesterday, but did have my cellphone.

After much trial and error, the timing is finished - all the little lines lined up with all the dimples and notches. After reading the howto, I was prepared for the worst, but the biggest bitch of the whole thing was getting the old idler studs out (they must have used hulk-strength threadlocker). It wasn't strictly necessary to replace them, but much like the backing plate on the crank pulley, I bought replacements, and fucked if I wasn't going to put them in.



After this, I can put the timing covers back on, put the bypass hoses on, the inlet and outlet for the radiator, and that'll be it for the front of the engine before it goes back in the car.

Can you take some pictures of the oil drain and the oil feed?

I noticed a bung in the manifold on the left bank, looks pretty big for a EGT probe, is that the factory EGR?

I'll take pictures the next time I'm down there.

Yeah, it's for the EGR. The valve's been toast for about 15,000 miles, so I figured it was a good time to just get rid of it. Hell, when I pulled it off, it was all full of engine oil anyhow.
