Got a little work done this weekend! Drove the spyder over to my friend's house where he has this insane garage
He has an in ground lift but his roomate's rx7 is on it currently getting some work done. So we got his quick jacks out! These things are so nice and convenient I ordered some for my house haha
As you can see the purpose of this trip was getting my semi built head swapped in and fixing a few leaks I've been having, Luckily the leaks were simply coming from the valve cover gasket so it was an easy fix. We also ported my OFH while everything was torn apart. My buddy has a mill and did it really nice and smooth worked like a charm but unfortunately didn't take any pictures
This was a progress picture before pulling the head off, I just realized how few pictures I actually did take, Oh well.
We had a busy effing weekend, we have the new head on, torqued down all the intake and exhaust manifolds installed and torqued. Coolant system and fuel system plugged in and installed. All that's left is to install the timing belt, time everything and put the pulleys and accessory belts back on and see how she fires up My other buddy is going to come help me tune it once it's running so we can get a decent base map after the changes and new cams.
Might be a stupid suggestion, but happened to me and caused months of head scratching. Had a tear in my FPR diaphragm that made the car very hard to start and when it did it ran very rich. Worth checking the vac line to the FPR to make sure there isnt fuel in there getting sucked into the engine.
