    1G Oil pump scoring

    So I messed up, basically have a brand new oem case and was turning the gears slow with a drill when I felt a small bind. Pulled it back apart and noticed I didn’t have the stub shaft tight so the gear had play in it . Causing it to score the housing. Should I be worried about this? I assume I...

    1G CONSTANT RATTLE WONT GO AWAY

    So I have this very strange noise that refuses to go away. It has been doing this since I rebuilt the motor 300 miles ago. It follows rpm and gets louder from rpm. It sounds like a very very fast rattle. Compression came back 1. 120 2. 120 3. 120 4. 120It’s so bad it’s causing terrible false...

    1G Loud tapping , 5 miles on motor:(

    did a leak down and comp test . If I had bent valves it would leak down / have a significant comp difference in one cylinder. Even checked it out with a bore scope. Even did a couple pulls. I think I’ve been touched by a angel. Crank jumped by like 2 teeth. I know I wasn’t supposed to rip on it...

    1G Loud tapping , 5 miles on motor:(

    Update. Compression came back 120psi on all cylinders and did not leak down very fast at all if any. I did the wrist pin knock check by undoing a plug wire while the car is running. Nothing changed. My next guess is a collapsed lifter or 16😂

    1G Loud tapping , 5 miles on motor:(

    Hi all. Started my new long block and it has been having a problem idling . It honestly runs like shit. So come to find out it skipped one or two teeth. But it ran decent enough so I didn’t think much of it I thought it was just in the tune. Drove it to get gas and everything . Come home and see...

    Manley platinum series pistons

    Hi all. So I’ve been told time and time again that I should have went with a different piston and my manley platinum series pistons are too weak for my goals of 700ish. They’re 9:0.1 with the .210 wrist pin. Just posting this to see if anyone has made good power on these pistons? I called manley...

    Yeah not sure what the problem with NPR was, but they refunded me so we’re good. No clue how they sent the wrong ones but hey I got it figured out so that’s all that matters

    Re using piston rings

    UPDATE: For anyone wondering the car is done. I believe this car is haunted as the last owner is deceased and there is some stuff that should not be happening here as in the rod bearings being DESTROYED but the crank being spotless, or the head trying to fight and getting stuck on its head...

    Re using piston rings

    Yes sir , on the bad cylinder I am going to just use my oem piston and rod from my last 6 bolt. If it held up to 27 psi on a 60 trim I’m hoping it’ll work on a stock rebuild haha! And good advice on the squirter. Thanks (:

    Re using piston rings

    Agreed ^ My only concern now is with the bad wrist pin comes piston slap. And I plan on just taking a hone to the cylinder and hopefully it stays within PTW clearances and all that jaz. I did rip on it a couple times the other night thinking it was lifters before I found out it was a pin...

    Re using piston rings

    Update #2 So I was in such a rush because I had limited time to do it . It just so happens that a little bit of time cleared up . Enough for me to order rings and bearings . With that being said I am going to do it right and do new rings and hone the cylinders, and top it off with some king rod...

    Re using piston rings

    UPDATE: I finally decided it would be the least I could do to atleast de glaze the cylinder as stated above by @1990TSIAWDTALON . I couldn’t get my hands on a ball hone in time so I’m just going to give the cylinder a quick run with a stone hone, a couple ups and downs just to get some nice...

    Re using piston rings

    Good info, thanks! And honestly the motor in my awd car had bad blow by I had to make a spring so the dipstick wouldn’t fly out and they tested like 92psi across all four . But the car lived on 27 psi for a long time and only broke because I think I stretched a rod bolt . My point is, this car...

    Re using piston rings

    I’m hoping the motor will run and be decently healthy as long as it wants to be . For being such a old motor that things breathes man it seems like it’s really healthy just from seeing how much air comes from the spark plug hole when you hand crank the motor it seems like it actually is in okay...

    Re using piston rings

    I completely understand where you’re coming from, I would love to glaze the cyl I’m just scared to do it in the car with all the microscopic material falling down into the crank area, it just doesn’t sit right with me. I would love to rebuild the motor at a later time when I’m in the position to...

    Re using piston rings

    my biggest fear is actually getting the piston out without breaking the rings because as you and I both know the ridge can be kind of brutal, especially on a motor with that mileage . I wouldn’t mine using the exact rings that came out of that cylinder because that’s it’s home . That would be...

    Re using piston rings

    Please read the whole post before you get too crazy.So, I picked up a talon for $1,000. It was thought to have needed a head but I threw new plugs in it and it started right up. Sounded like a dead lifter. Put all new lifters in it and still makes the noise, have came to the positive...

    1G Aftermarket oil pan

    from my understanding they are stock pickup. Also have to run a 2g pickup since I can’t get my hands on a 6 bolt one . But the 7 bolt pickup will clear the stock pan all day so I’m not too worried about it as long as Moroso follows the stock pan decently close . Only reason I’m so hesitant to...

    Hell all(; I have read the many post made in the past about the Moroso oil pan. I like the quality of Moroso stuff as my dad is a v8 guy and has a handful of Moroso objects on his car. My main concern is I have heard more bad things about this pan than good. With that being said I also...

    ARP 2000 RPM

    yes sir, I have the .210 same as you . I even just called Manley again to double check since I mentioned that the 21mm pins don’t have many options. He said it’s good for over 1000 on the .210. I think the setup might do alright . If not I’ll live off of what the tuner suggest! Like I say I’ll...

    ARP 2000 RPM

    Gotta love Colorado , down in Florida there’s a 6266 car making 750. I hate the air up here lol ! I figured the turbo wouldn’t wake up until 55-6100 up here on a .83 t4. If that’s the case I might look into a s372 . I couldn’t find any bigger wrist pin as the turbo tuff wrist pins aren’t made...

    DSMLink v3 vs AEM EMS (Merged)

    Hi all! So I have looked at the already existing forums on this topic but quite a few of them are out dated, out dated enough to where v3 didn’t have a speed density option yet. From what I read anyway.. so I just wanted to know when ecm link v3 starts to “hold you back” . And if a full Aem...

    1G Battery relocation question

    Engine break in

    Oh alright, makes sense I was just reading a lifter thread and it said the oem 2g lifters rev real high so I just assumed that was the way to go. As long as 3g will hold the revs I’ll run them!
