Well the 4-6 week top engine build turned into a 4 month full refresh of my 155k mi 1988 3.2 Carrera.

Bottom end opened up (why not were this far) so off we went. Polished and balanced crank, rebuilt oil pump, new bearings, gears and chains, reseal, new P&Cs, supertec head studs, rod bolts, etc... etc... Heads reworked, the list goes on.

Valve guide leaks and failed smog caused the rebuild. Car ran great, just wouldnt pass CA SMOG. So down the supply slope I went. While you're in there parts list add to the fun. New rear shocks, rebuilt axles, filters, hoses, caps and rotors.... Of course powder coated tins, covers, pulleys.... so much fun....

Heading over to Sleepers this morning to hear the first start of my engine.

Video to follow.


Engine in but fuel injectors not. Waiting....
