I think Melvin meant a s13 silvia front on a hatch is butt ugly not a s15 front on a hatch, and I do have some updates, I've just been busy with work lately, but hopefully I can get an update this weekend though. :wink:

And how light is that flywheel, it looks half gone. :lol:

I had to revise this section due to webshots shutting down and losing most of my photos.

So i started too dissassemble the engine once again, but except this time I'm going to rebuild it :wink:. I really don't need to go into detail about how to tear it down externally since I previously mentioned it earlier in my thread, but here is the whole reason why I've decided to rebuild the engine.

Well right now I plan to rebuild the engine as i'm learning in my engine repair class. After that I plan to hand the car over to a buddie of mine so he can start putting on the aero and what not. This will be my final and last car project. I'm taking baby steps to make it my all time master piece.

I lost all the photos to this section, so bare with me I had to revise it.

Cylinder head removed

I got the engine block torn down and dissembled according to the FSM, and I got the block to be steam cleaned and minty fresh
Image
Image
Image

We also managed to clean up the valves while me and my partner where at it.
Image
Image

Also my camshafts looks too be scored I gotta measure it and what not, but I'll most likely have to replace them that's fine cause my buddy Dereck says he has some clean OEM ones.

Why not just get some aggressive cams? :D

Love the sound of a big cammed turbo engine.

Ya I just might do that although I know if I upgrade one thing most likely ill have too upgrade another part, so I really have too do my research and double check too make sure it wont interfere with other components

Image
I removed the oil filter sandwhich plate just too eliminate, which i forgot too do before hand.

Image
I made sure i got the camshafts TDC

Image
As well as the crankshaft, and I loosen the crankshaft bolt before hand before mating it at TDC

Image
Marked the camshaft gears and timing chain with a flat head screw driver too make it more visable

Image
Camshaft removed with the proper fsm cam shaft bracket removal procedure. If you noticed I removed the camshaft and cam gear as one assembly with a little bit of tug you can break it loose without harming anything just don't go barbaric

Image
The camshafts looks too be scored I gotta measure it and what not, but i'll most likely have to replace either with aftermarket or oem.

Head bolts are all that our left too remove the head from the block...


machine shop can probably clean the cams up

Honesty, i would just brake clean/parts wash the cams. The they look just fine. I would not worry one bit running those cams in that head..

If you did want to replace them, a cheaper alternative, you could grab some na sr cams from several different cars.
Supposedly a tiny bit more lift than turbo sr cams.

Late update super busy with school and work. I know excuses excuses. Welp my laptop crashed and well all the photos I had saved for my rebuild on my SR is now gone, so this will be a giant leap of currently where my engine stands.

Image
Installed pistons and rods, I gotta say torco assembly lube is amazing it reduces friction so much my rotating torque on the crankshaft (With all the pistons installed) was about 9 ft lbs, which is not that much at all.

Image
Image
Timing Guides and Chain Installed. No: 1 piston at TDC. Also you can notice that I hot tanked the block, and installed new freeze plugs.

Image
I installed the oil pump/timing cover, and also the harmonic balancer. I didnt bother too torque the crankshaft pulley until after I get the head and timing set.

Image
Flipped the engine over and installed the baffle plate, and started to install the oil pick up tube. Before installing the oil pans, I made sure I squirted oil at areas I might have missed.

Image
Greddy oil pan installed as well as the other baffle plate. This is the current "state" of my engine. *Note there is no excessive RTV haha i'm learning!

Ahh so clean 5 angle valve job, new exhaust valve guides, and seals. All thats left for me to do is to install the CAS, timing bracket, timing tensioner, freeze plugs, and the valve cover.

Image
Installed the Apexi Headgasket
