My overall goal with this is to rebuild the engine, and get it ready to accept the hydrogen fuel cell thing that I built, clean up all the grease and oil, powdercoat some stuff, redo the wiring, and tub the drivers side. I will also be doing some gasket matching, porting, and polishing.

Here is what I am working with:






Replacing the timing chain and gears:






Something is wrong here lol:





Its nasty under here:





The reason for my engine being torn down. #2 is off a little, in turn its causing a misfire on all cylinders.










Gasket pieces:

Re: Project: Clean, cut, rebuild, and save some damn cash.

those rims/tires look huge, what size are they. Engine looks nice. Just a rebuilt with a little head work or more. Either way looks good
Thanks! Their 20's (235/40/zr20). I completely rebuilt the engine and rewired the aftermarket stuff in the dash and did some head work. I powdercoated/ painted/ polished everything under the hood.

nice work you did on the engine..

your blowerbox looks good!
Thanks! The blowerbox is almost done and it will be powdercoated black. I am using a Chrysler a/c system lol.

It should be less than 2 weeks!





I did a little more today. Every power wire has been stepped up to a minimum of 4 ga. All main grounds are 4 ga. The engine to frame is 1/0, the main batteries are 1/0ga, and the alternator charge wires are 1/0 ga. I did some more work to the speaker box and its gonna be sick!
