Stripping down the donor engine

Donor engine is a glorious piece of history, a sti version2ra -vlimited long motor, took a very direct hit straight to the front of the vehicle and made a mess of the remainder of the driveline.

Anyhow, with the manifold stripped, i set about removing and discovering the rest of the damage...

So far discovered the plastic, timing covers, crank pulley, crank timing belt drive, oil pump, oil filter mount and the exhaust manifold all need to be replaced.

Not...

Its two months to motorvation, between now and then I have to diagnose an engine fault in the RA, remove it, strip it and refit!

Never personally rebuilt an engine before, interesting times ahead.

Build threads, your daily happenings and Perth-WRX

Posted 24-10-2009 at 07:52 AM by tuna

Quite often I've read build project threads on the forum and wished there was a way to read about the progress of each car without being to distracted by other posts between updates.

We've all seen them and probably use them daily already for other topics. Blogs; this style of update is huge in Japan- and I beleive will suit this forum well.

So, finally for Perth-WRX I have optioned in the blogging module.

Looking forward to seeing people embrace this...
