Looks like a good project

I see the 20g isin't on the car in the last pic. Are you waiting for the motor to break in before you install it?

yeah im gonna break it in with the 14b because im doing a motoman break in, and dont feel like boosting high with the 20g and beingg in the danger zone:icon16:

lol plus i have to take off the turbo and easy out an exhaust stud that snapped:crying:

Nice project, you had to open the bottom side to get at the pistons right? LOL

6th pick with pistons on the chair looks like you had the block in tact and magically pulled the pistons up thru the top.

yeah lol mine are detachable from the top:naughty:

nah yeah the pan, axle, and transfer case needed to come off so i can get them to pop up. when i was under the car and pushing number one up, a piece of the broken piston ring hit me in the face and i was like wtf?:eek7:

Awesome dude... Welcome back. I still remember ya. :thumbsup:

Everything looks good...

So what's next on the mod list? I'm assuming you just did a rebuild with all stock internals aside from the ARP studs and ACL bearings?

yeah thats all really i could afford, but when i get the extra cash im buying forged pistons, and a nice set of rods, and just gonna give it a hone and slide those puppies in:iceslolan

for now i think the 20g will keep me happy enough and it should all hold up.
