The worlds slowest engine rebuild is still in progress. Here is a little Thanksgiving update. I have a fresh short block on the engine stand and my head has been freshened up with a bunch of new valves and guides. I have a new front case on the way since I found a crack on my old one. Here are some pics of what has been sitting around my garage.

And the back of my car is pretty much just a misc parts storage area.

I spent a little bit of time working on the engine last night. I got out my JB Weld and put the balance shaft delete plug in my new front case and then put it on the engine and I put the head on last night. Also my cams came in last week so I will be installing them and setting timing soon. Also I need to really clean out my oil pan and then mount it up so I can prime the engine with a power drill prior to putting the timing belt on.

It has been a while since I updated in here. My car is officially together and running. Unfortunatly I had to head back to Guam before I got to break it in or tune it. At least I have it all together in one piece so if my wife has to pack up our house while I am gone she will be able to do something with it.

Here are some recent pictures of it.
Freshly built HX-35 center section to replace the one that was on the car when the last engine died.

Here is the engine bay all back together with the exception of the JMF heatshield over the exhaust manifold.

And here is the car back in the garage after it's first wash in about two years.

I still need to adjust the hood so that it lines up with the fenders better, do a boost leak test, put some mile on the engine, adjust the tune for the lower displacement and new cams, and eventually install an IAT sensor so that I can go speed density and loose the MAF.

It does suck that I got it running and was only able to put about three miles on it before hopping on a plane back to Guam. At least it is ready for some good times when I get back to California.
