- New oil pump
Head:

back up, and head deck)
- Cam bearing surfaces cleaned.

Now all the goodies:

Thanks everyone,

Cannonbear:
Target is high 400rwhp, the setup is capable of way more but reliability is my main concern. So you may see a mid 500rwhp run on here from me, but I am will drive it at mid to low 400rwhp daily.

catch2nd:
Naw I am running the lex-AFM mod, I will edit that right now.

A couple of questions for all you experts. What would you recommend the best assembly lube is and also how to get the entire oil system primed to eliminate dry spots?

Thanks,
Seth

before you put the timing belt, stick a drill on the oil pump pully and spin the pump till oil comes out the turbo feed.

When you go to start the car pull the EFI fuse and jump the clutch switch. Then crank for about 15 sec. stick the fuse back in and fire it up

Damn Seth!

I could tell you were gonna make that thing a monster when you came to tacoma to the KK meet! Well that was a while ago, and you were talking about making your intake at that time. But wow! Congrats man, Thing looks badass!

I don't know if it is the best or not, but the shop that did my machine work gave me a bottle of Clevite engine assembly lube. It is this red S that comes in a blue and white squeeze bottle. They build some nasty race motors and use it exclusively.

im so jealous of you mk3 supra guys! you can boost such high amounts reliably on the stock computer with just a freakin FPR!! us mk1 mr2 guys have to go standalone for anything even nearly reliable...

but nice setup none the less! how bout some pics of the noble steed this block will be goin in?

MR2ninja: Thanks, as for the noble steed this is going, it is not so noble at this time and has not been for a long time. It is paint job less. But I will slap some pics up later.
