A little update I installed a new knock sensor and my boost issues went away. I now have 176 miles on the build and I couldn't be happier. I have a huge smile everytime I make a pull. I put the 14b turbo back on and it feels great.

Thank you very much. Everyone's kind words mean alot to me. Without the motivation I never would have finished it. If anyone ever wants to do the job here's proof on how much work it really is. I'm no professional either I do not do body work or weld for a living. I just love to learn new things and challenge myself.

I am deciding not to do alot of body work this summer just so I can enjoy the car. Once winter hits that's when the magic will begin. I'll just do upgrades and stay on maintenance. I'm at 270 miles and zero problems so far.

She's holding up great with 450 miles and zero problems. May I add 450 hard miles.

So where do I begin on this one. I'm definitely not perfect and I've made plenty of mistakes. Last night I was reading up on eliminating the balance shafts since that's what I've already done. I've never heard or seen different stub shafts for the kits. Well of course mine was the ebay one without the oiling groove go figure. Luckily I had a brand new oil pump laying around, and I'm hoping since I put assembly lube on that thing it didn't hurt the engine to bad. I saw zero metal shavings in the pan so let's just pray its good to go. I spent all last night tearing it apart and fixing it. The little stub didn't look to bad, if the engine chunks I know why.
I just drove it another 100 miles and everything is fine so far, that's not to say the bearings aren't trashed yet.

I’d say you probably caught it quick enough, great job continuing research even after completion. I’m impressed!
Thanks man, if it wasn't for me researching constantly, alot of things would be broke. I hope I caught it in time. I'm going to start building another engine and use all the knowledge I've gained from the forums to do so.

2.4 block would be ideal due to the torque

I've been real busy tonight. I got my neo dialed in and she pulls real nice. I'm at 15 pounds on the 14b and it feels absolutely insane. I couldn't be happier.

Officially 1500 miles on the build. Just a little update letting everyone know. I haven't done much body work or anything to the car, just have been enjoying it.

I would just run the car the way it is for the summer. Then I’m the winter so the body and paint. Looks good and those afc where the best budget in the past. Great set up
