why the hell would you paint it all in one piece than seperately if you STILL have to take it apart to put the gaskets in?? That is such a ghetto build. I'll put 5 bucks on that paint will flake off within 15mins of the engine running. IF it can even make it that far without blowing up.

PS you painted you engine the wrong colours.

PPS Your sideskirts are STILL on backwards smartguy

I think he meant that he put the pieces together for the pic, but did not actually assemble it in terms of bolting it up.

Rod, this guy is quite an idiot. Read his previous posts on here and on e30tech. Don't defend him. :)

Jamie you are right. This guy totally doesn't make sense.

I have a very similar engine setup, with a few minor differences, and its turbocharged. I put down 330whp and 325wtq.

BTW. you could have painted the parts first and take pictures after it was assembled...:idea:

If you are planning on going turbo, you should get the coolant channels welded. wouldn't cost much now but it will save you a lot of hassle later.*th-up*

i will inquire about balanceing, but assumed it was way more than 150$ so i didnt even look into it.. there brand new 325E pistons and rings from mahley

i paid 500 for a machin shop to do my block they machined it 1 mill,balencing all pistons,and lighting the crank and flywheel,im also in the automotive industry so it might cost u a little bit more i dunno

thanks guys, i stopped by the machine shop on my way home, the main guy wasnt there(owner i delt with before with the flywheel, and the price giver), a worker said the v8 crank they had setup with flywheel was costing 240.00 and we kept talking and i told him how ours have 1 rod per journal and he said it would be much cheaper since its less labor intensive since they dont have to add counter weights on it etc.

so i assume around 175ish, the guy will be back monday, so i came home ripped it all apart, got the crank, seperated the rods from the pistons, and harmonic and gear, and i got it back there, awaiting for a call now monday but 99.9% sure i will get it done..
