    Let the build begin!

    The DECH is finally coming apart for the motor build over the winter.
    Motor has been pulled !

    A bunch of parts have been ordered over the past few weeks... will update as pieces come in!
    TFS heads are still a few weeks out.
    When I have some spare time, going to pull my motor down to just the block and send it over to Beatty to have it checked. Once it gets checked out, the bottom end will be ordered!
    My goal is to have the motor fully ready to go for the time the car comes out of storage. Then throw it back together.
    I'm going full OCD under the hood in terms of clean up.
    Going to clean and paint as much as possible. Got acouple more cool items that are coming for it aswell.

    Getting excited now!

    All the cooling

    The DECH is getting a diff cooler for next season!
    ZR came across a used diff cooler close to us here and scooped this up for me.
    This an identical kit that we put on Big Blue this past season.
    We saw amazing results with it.
    We are hoping this will add some longevity to the DECH in the rear end department. Have a couple more pieces to obtain before install... but all the major stuff is there
    So sexy!

    Update on the motor!

    It is finally fully stripped down to the bare block.
    Upon inspection... the bottom end and heads looked 100%. Looks like a brand new motor on the bearings etc. Super pleased with that
    The chains were still G string tight aswell.

    The block is now at Beatty and Woods to have checked out and measured. Once they report back, the bottom end will be ordered!
    I have since gathered a mountain of other parts.
    All gaskets and seals
    upgraded to 8bolt flywheel along with a 11inch clutch
    New bigger fuel pump
    Head bolts
    ARP studs for the bottom end
    Bunch of other ARP bolts (flywheel, side block bolts etc)
    Front timing set
    etc etc etc

    It's getting real exciting now!

    Side note
    The old crank/rods& Pistons oil pan and timing set & Pi heads will be up for sale once the motor is completed... if anyone is interested in making a deal on it all, please PM me.
    Thanks

    Update time..........

    Bottom end is finally on order. Block turned out to be 100%... no damage etc etc.

    Custom Wiseco pistons will take 10weeks to come... hopefully the timeline will stay somewhat consistent and I will have this back together for track day... lol.
    *fingers crossed*
