You should paint that engine bay while you've got it all apart. At least paint it black if nothing else. If you use that Rhinoliner stuff, it'll look pretty good and it can be brushed on. Guaranteed to look 10x better than white. Just a suggestion while it's apart.

when you bought that engine from them, what was not included that you found you needed? Around how much is this running you if you dont mind saying. Only reason I ask is once my 170k mile motor goes I want to do the same thing. Especially since i see nippon has that motor listed for $700

the motor i got from nippon is in real good condition...it has 82,808 KM written ontop of the timing cover...witch im guessing indicates the mileage witch is 52k miles....i already took the motor apart and everything looks real good...the turbo has a BIT of shaft play, but it spins nicely and has no ships or anything on the turbine...the motor came with pretty much everything...I think nippon motors is pretty good if you as me, but who knows I might be the lucky one
