Alright guys as some of you know the cambelt went on my MR2 a few weeks back just as I was about to move her on (for shame
) but it did give me the push I needed to actually do a few things with my car.
I should be getting the money from Mr. Banker in a few days and have a budget of €5k max to build back the engine. I'll probably be doing the work myself as I have the shed to do it, I have a runabout and I have rebuilt an engine before. I've also mapped a car and strung it up to get the geometry correct. Mapping and wheel alignment aren't something I'll be doing myself. Well, maybe alignment but the mapping might be above my station just yet!
I've been searching the States for parts as they're miles cheaper over there even taking postage into account. So far the list of parts I've put together cover just the bottom end. I'm contemplating what I should do head wise as it's expensive!
Wiseco Forged Pistons €430
ARP Rod Bolts €60
ARP Main and Head Bolts €210 from MartyJ hopefully!
ARP Flywheel Bolts €75
ACL Rod, Main and Thrust Bearings €150
Fidanza Flywheel €275
RPS Clutch €330 from TBDev
HKS Cambelt €150
Power FC €530
MAT Sensor kit €60
Oil Pump €90 from MartyJ again!
1.4mm Cosmetic Head Gasket €110
All of the above include shipping.
I know that I'll need fluids, etc and there's going to be other costs on top. I'm still not decided on a turbo kit apart from the fact it will be one of Tim's. They're €1800 though.
So far the cost is just over €4600. I'll be needing an engine lift and stand on top of that so that'll be €300 or so. Other tools that I might not have I'll budget €100 for.
I'll probably have a little more than the €5k budgeted but if anyone can think of anything that I've missed or anything that I can cut back on please feel free to add to the thread!
