S52 Engine Build/Swap- All practices disclosed
I'm writing this thread because there doesn't seem to be enough concrete information about both engine building and the S52 in general.
In this thread I will cover measuring, part orientation, how to check clearance, torque specs for each part, parts lists, etc. I will also explain the reasoning behind certain things, tools required(specialty) and pricing so everyone can gauge their own build cost based on their needs and expectations.
