Installed FIC 1120s from spare stock, hard pipe SMIC kit and a cheapo 16g to test as an upgrade from the 13b. FP mani since the stocker was cracked and a Kinagawa adjustable WG. My 20 year old son did the correct adjustments for practice as I oversaw it all. Currently tuning. Possible Holset from spare stock after I get the tune nice. Follow along.
Carbon Fiber Wrapped the hood. Need to reapply that but better than primer and metal.
Decided to update the car along with the Paul Volk @99gst_racer tube front end.
Boy is that a thing of beauty!
More to come!!!!
Thanks Paul. I had to show off the tube work, it makes getting to everything so much easier than the big bulky flat iron that USED to be there!
I kinda painted myself into a corner on the fiber wrap hood job, but it was my first try. I have plenty of wrap left to try again, .
Well after I burned a valve in the 92 Talon, I pulled the motor and started the refresh process. I decided to TEACH 4G63 rebuilds to my youngest son, who is 20 and graduated Auto Tech a year ago but never had a chance to do any rebuilds. He helped me on my Saturn SC2 DOHC motor and it has 10k on it now. He has a 90 GSX, that I am donating used parts to for his build.
We are BOTH excited and happy with progress and he is a very good learner, following my instructions to a T!
Here is what we accomplished this weekend. Enjoy.
Specs on the cardboard were missing the leading zero, all Mains came out to .0018-.002
Really like that color and you don't see too many. How hard was it to wrap the hood and what was the cost of the CF wrap? The hump must be a PITA. I was thinking about painting my hood myself but if the wrap doesn't cost too much, I'd try that first.
Wrap is 7D gloss carbon fiber wrap from Feabay and I think it was $30. It works good but boy that hump is a REAL PITA. We didn't get it perfect but I have enough left over wrap to try it again if I want. I think we started in the wrong place and got caught up in the front corner of the drivers side of the hood, but she looks better than pealing paint so I am good for now. Besides, she will be so fast, you won't see a wrinkle anyway!!!
So burned a valve and melted a small portion of #4 piston so it was time to do a freshen up along with my son doing his 6 bolt along with me for directions. Things are coming out very well spec wise!
My son is following along and building his stock 6 bolt at the same time!
Finally got the motor bolted together! Almost time for some fun!
The youngest son is right there with me on his build, waiting on valve springs for him.
I love teaching how to do builds!
