Ahhhh... now there's some inspiration!!! A lot of it is all blah blah blah to me... but it all looks perti!!

You've got heaps of great ideas there mate. I think I'll stay away from all things that spin and cut when my car gets done and leave it to someone who has a clue. I somehow don't think I would have the s*** you are producing. Well done and I hope she's coming good for you.

Well I've been a bit busy the last month so sorry for no updates..

First thing I had to do was build a workshop off the back of my garage, basically just a 4M * 4M box to put the machinery and that's taken the last 4wks to knock up.
Here's a couple of pics,
ImageImage
Now I can tool about outside and not give a s**t how hot, cold, windy Melb is...

In the meantime I dropped the block and bits to Orger Engines and the first hurdle that we ran into was that the block I supplied was cracked.
As you can see here virtually all the webbing around the bolt holes had stress fractures.
Image

So options were, $250 for stock block, around $700 for a mexican or $3k+ for a Dart.... Hmmmmmmmm...
Seeing as I had just spent around $2k for the wood, crete, insul and other crap for the shed the Dart was out as I wasn't prepared to hock the CC this close to Chrissy..
I just went with another stock block, here she is all sized up. :)

Image

The other little problem I ran into was that on an initial check the comp ratio was going to be up around 10.1 a tad too high for supercharging I think..
So only real option was to dish out the pistons, not wanting to possibly f**k 'em up doing them myself :roll: I let the guys at Orgers do that bit.
Image
With those done the comp ratio is now 9.4:1, I would of liked it under 9:1 but I should be able to drop it a little more with a fat head gasket.

For anyone out there looking at getting some machining done on their 8, here's a run down on the list of things done.. :shock:

Hot tank block . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $86
Crack test block . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $86
Bore & hone with strainer plate . . . . .$363
Line hone 5 mains . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $217
Balance full engine . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$330
Block deck surface . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$110
Supply & fit 5 cam bearings . . . . . . . .$132
Dummy assembly, check bearing
clearances, comp ratio,
piston to deck height . . . . . . . . . . . . $220 (After doing this the next process needed doing)
Conrod resize . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $150
Machine bowls in pistons . . . . . . . . . . $99
H/perf conrod bearings . . . . . . . . . . . $79
H/perf main bearings . . . . . . . . . . . . .$88
Thread oil galleries . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $66
Cam re-grind . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$220
And lastly Supply s/h block . . . . . . . .$275

Grand total . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $2521

So now the fun begins assembling a big jigsaw puzzle.. :lol:

I also grabbed a few more bits from Summit for the ignition,
Image
I like the warning on the coil pack "LETHAL VOLTAGE"..

I also picked up a little powdercoating gun.
Image

This thing works great, you just need an old oven (which a mate of mine was throwing out after a kitchen reno) and bake away..
I tried it out on a few smaller bits and pieces to get the coverage and baking time right then went and hit the sump with a jet black.

Image

There's a few different colours, the standard blue, black, red, yellow, etc and then there are a few transparent colours, red, blue and clear..
Now I was going to just polish up the S/C but now I'm thinking trans blue over the polished Al.. :)

So over the Chrissy break I'll hopefully get most of the donk bolted together so I can start to work out where all the pulleys are going to go.
Another thing I've been contemplating (having the electric water pump) is to run the aircon and power steer off an electic motor :twisted:
At the moment the air con in my car is fine when cruising but drop the revs to idle and things start to warm up, after nearly 12yrs the comps on the way out. I've got a brank spanker for the rebuild but I'm sure that the constant rev changes aren't all that good for the thing so if I spin 'em at the same pace they'd be doing when cruising around 1500-2k then they'd both be operating at peak efficiency when you need them most (at idle) and also free up a few RWKw.
So before I pull the lane totally off the road I might try fitting up something to see if it works, I'm looking at using a 300W scooter motor maybe 2. :idea:

Now that I'm done with the major building works and all the dirt and dust it makes, the updates should come a little more regularly.. :oops:
