Engine Rebuild Update

The engine is almost complete. The head and oil pan are on. Next up the flywheel and clutch then it goes back in the rally car.
We used a MC turbo block this time so we now have oil squirters. Installed a new oil pump, lightened and shot-peened rods and did a light port to the head and intake and exhaust manifold.
Check out the picture of how far the piston comes up in the head, might be higher than 12.3 to 1 compression, Race fuel only.
Hope to start it soon, Show-Me rally will be here soon.
Enjoy the pictures.

Flywheel, Clutch and Pressure Plate are on.
We will be bolting it to the transmission soon.
We are getting there.










Engine and Transmission are in. Now we just have to get everything else attached and see if it runs.

First Start of the New Engine

The engine is in and break-in has begun.
Here are some pictures and video of the 3rd start.
The car fired up on the first try with the computer on (after we cranked it to get oil pressure with the computer off)
It would even idle which was amazing.
We will get as many miles as we can on the engine before Show-Me.





We are also now Historic

Show-Me 2019 Update:

Car ran great. Engine seems to be making more power and the addition of the oil cooler helped with oil temps on stage.
Stage conditions were very unpredictable with lots of loose gravel on the stages and dust everywhere.
We had a few moments early in the rally with the loose gravel and driving through dust from other competitors but we kept it together.
Finished 3rd in class and 5th overall, our first podium at the Show-Me rally.

Enjoy the pictures and videos I will post the in car videos later today.
