  1. A little more progression photos: had to order 28 shims from SuperTech to get to this point. But finally both intake and exhaust completely done. Waiting on the head gasket now. (It’s enroute). It’s a tight fit!
  2. The head came back and now it’s time to set up the valve train
  3. Not sure if I’ll be able to get the head Into the shop before Christmas but the cams are fitted and ready for the rest of the beadwork!
  4. Block didn’t take long to get built and shipped. It landed this past Friday at the shop. It was a smooth and easy business transaction with the shop in Canada. Also the Unigroup camshafts came in. Got them fitted up and ready to send the head off to get cleaned and the New valves (guides and seals) installed. More to come.... IMG_3442.mov
  5. Make a bushing the size of the head stud hole with clearance for the stud in the hole, than install with sealant, stops any possible transfer of coolant. Bushed holes should have sealant on the head stud instead of arp lube
  6. So I’ve contacted Unigroup Engineers about their cams and I liked what I was told. So I’ll be going with the 260 IN/EX with 10.9mm lift. The CP Pistons states: “CP pistons are compatible with oversized valves and higher lift cams” Due to this change I’m going to switch to a dual spring set up from SuperTech (SPRK-M1007D/RB) - 92lbs @ 40.70mm In / 82lbs @40.70mm Ex —232lbs @ 11.00mm In / 222lbs @ 11.00mm Ex Max Lift: 15.3. About to start ordering the parts to get this in my garage by Christmas!
  7. I want results. Who's gonna see "Tomei" or "Kelford"? Brands aren't priority on camshafts for me... Exhaust system different story lol
  8. So I have got the ball rolling on the next step for this build.... I slept on it for a few days and decided that the best option for this would be to start it all from scratch. After sourcing different options and not wanting to "trust" someone's word on the mileage, who built it, what parts were used, etc... I decided to go through a reputable shop in Canada. Saint John Engine Rebuilders. They have done tons of motors and supplies a decent amount of RB builds to the USA. Bottom End As Follows: Rb26 Block w/ bushed decks (for the common head bolt hole crack) New Crank CP Pistons 86.5 9.0:1 Manley H-Beams N1 Oil Pump w/ Spline Drive ACL Main Bearings ARP2000 Main Studs. As far as the head goes. I am still looking at higher lift cams for more torque while keeping the duration in a nice range for the 2530s. (open to input). But the list of what I plan to do now: Metal Headgasket 1.1-1.3mm Tomei metal Gasket set Supertech/Brian Crower Single spring & TI retainers Supertech Valve guides intake/exhaust Supertech valve seal exhaust/intake Intake/Exhaust valves +1mm
  9. You have any suggestions?? I wanted to keep the duration in the 260-264 range for my HKS 2530 set up on E85. Also an update on the motor pull apart. Head off and ready to be cleaned up.
  10. So it looks like I will be dealing with a shop up north in Canada. I have reached out to a couple of them and have got the ball rolling on what I want. Will be receiving quotes hopefully all before Tuesday so we can get the engine to me by Thanksgiving (So about a month from now). Had three people send me their options they had for sale that stood out also. Option #1 Original N1 Block (Not Heritage edition) w/ rb26 fully assembled, N1 block, lots of new parts, assembled at boost factory. But only things that aren’t stock are the arp studs, bearings, and cometic head gasket. Waiting to see if he's willing to do the block and crank separate. Option #2 05u 86.5mm torque plate machined Cp pistons ceramic and moly coated Eagle rods R34 crank Reimax big oil pump gear Ported head Tomei Poncams Supertech valve springs wi ti retainers Tomei heagasket Arp headstuds Hks timing belt and gears Acl race bearings Tomei oil restrictor External cylinder head oil drain Custom in block cam trigger Option #3 built short block, crank with nitto extended collar, wiseco 86.5 pistons, Manley H-Beam rods
  11. Egg Zach Lee.... I spoke with him today and we both agreed on that. No point in wasting time/$$$, so I am adding a block to my list. Going to do some research for a couple days and see whats out there and all of my options.
