Lol I'll try and take a few photos for you. Really I should have Geoff looking over my shoulder and snapping them he's slightly keener than I am when it comes to photos and write ups

Is it just me or does this happen to everyone ? You tear the house apart looking for something, only not to find it. Then when you are doing something else it apears right under your nose

Had that degree wheel, you're better off with the full summit racing timing kit. Much easier to mount securely to the crank pulley.

Do you mean this kit ? www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G1056/?rtype=10

I already have a dial indicator. In what way does the disc mount differently ?

Thats the one!

It's solid metal, so you can bolt it real firm - and the crank bolt fits through the middle.

I could lend you mine if you need it or were close by.

I would HIGHLY recommend that you convert to trigger wheel. The standard timing reference is BALLS.

Is there much involved in switching to trigger wheel setup Mark? If I'm starting from scratch I might as well go down the best route for futre proofing.

It's so easy it's almost hilarious.

You need a trigger wheel, and a sensor. Buy the trigger wheel from www.trigger-wheels.com

The sensor - a sensor from a ford transit will do, they also sell them at the above website.

You just then need to mount the sensor and the wheel.

Use SHIELDED cable.

I'd retain the distributor for the single tooth TDC sensor, or you could mount one on a cam pulley.

I was talking on the phone to Kris Osheim who runs KORacing in the US. Kris sold me the gt3082r turbo kit. He recommends that I install my old turbo for running in the engine because there is a slight risk of damage from bits of metal from the rebuild. So I am going to take his advice.

Here's a couple of photos. The first is of the ARP studs and HKS head gasket installed. The second is of the head ready to be torqued. I should point out that there is an issue with installing the ARP nuts. Where the studs are situated there isn't quite enough room on the intake side to simply drop some the nut onto the stud. I coated the socket with some of the ARP lube and used a bit of force to get in there. Some people have used a grinder on their socket to make the wall a bit thinner.

I would love to have an engine to tinker about with. Where did you learn how to do this?

Lots & lots of reading; books, magazines and of coarse the internet

I just wish I could make some money from doing this kind of stuff

I cleaned out 18 years of grime from the engine bay yesterday. So these TRD engine mounts will be going going in soon.

So I finally installed the Moroso sump. With that, the crank scraper and the engine girdle allowing extra oil capacity, this engine should be up for track use without too much worry of oil starvation.

It is very light weight, you could lift it with your little finger, try doing that with the original alternator bracket

Fingers crossed the engine will be back in the MR2 this week.

Re: Forged 2.2 build to begin soon. 6 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 133
I'm not sure if I will have it running this week. I still have a lot of wiring to sort out. I will also have to get it booked in for the NCT after it is run in.

Like I said in a earlier post, I am not going to risk the new turbo while I run in the engine, so the complete upgrade will be done in sections. At least I have the main part finished. So it will go something like:

1. Run in engine.
2. Install 3082r tubo kit, do some testing
3. Install everything else
4. Get the Hydra Nemesis ems installed and tuned.

I have a nice crank trigger wheel and sensor installed for a future upgrade, when I can afford to go to coil on plugs.

I will take some photos later today.

So I'm going through some of my MR2 parts and I thought that I would post these photos of some of the parts that will have to wait to go on the engine.

1st photo has the Delphi 950cc fuel injectors next to the RMR.
2nd photo, Nissan Q45 throttle body. 3rd photo, RMR intake manifold for Q45.
3rd photo, RMR intake manifold.
4th photo, Garrett 3082r KORacing turbo with chromed compressor and heat coated turbine.
5th photo, KORacing down pipe that is also coated. This came with the turbo kit.

Jesus! That is some sweet kit Marty, whatever about performance, it will be something to behold! Even just looking at the engine will have some impact on people. Nice work, really. I can't believe the patience and meticulous levels of detail. Best of luck getting it running and run in. I am sure it will be some day for you, to hear it fire for the first time after all the thousands of hours of work.
