Body Damage is Cool
I got my block off to the machine shop, thats a start. I know I'm going back stock for now but when I get started putting it together should I start a thread from start to finish engine assembly? I can send pics, specs and such. It could save some of you some money on how easy it is to build your own engine as apposed to having a shop build it for you. It will probably be about a month or so before I have all the parts ready, let me know.

I think that would be great. Maybe start a new thread. Pictures would be great. How much are you overboring?
Could you breakdown your costs?
Thanks,

good idea dennis, and if we can what we should do is keep it a straight forward build thread and keep the comments out. possibly have a seperate comment thread just to keep it cleaner with all pertinent information easy to find.

i guess once one of us actually gets our stroker conversion going, we could do the same for it. keep this one going as the discussion thread and have the seperate stroker build thread with no comments, just info.

When I get started I will post it then, like I said it could be a month or so before I get started so be patient.
I am planing on a stock bore but if I find out it need to be bored a I have to buy pistons I might as well stroke it. I just want it on the road again.

i believe you can edit your own posts, and add links and anything else you want to. so it would be as simple as hitting the edit button next to the reply button on your post.

Here is something to think about and check into before you stroke your engine. My boy has had 2 attempts and on both spun the #1 rod bearing before 5000 miles and before installing his turbo. It seems several others of spun rod bearings also. So before you stroke one talk to someone that has not spun a bearing or has found a fix. My boy is thinking of going back to a 2.0 for his Probe. He ran 13.7s on a tired Sportage engine with a big turbo and low boost. He thinks he can do alot better with a fresh engine, lower compresion pistons and big boost.
