A few things changed since my original post. The 3.0 long block was unusable and was replaced with a '79 3.3 long block. The 3.0 heads & cam towers are at Turbokraft for a valve job, porting, and match porting the aluminum blocks and 3.0 manifold. Will also be opened up for the 3.3 p&c's.
The cams were reground to SC specs by Elgin. RarlyL8 rebuild the euro fuel head & wur. I also picked up a used set of BB headers w/heat. Will probably stay with the stock turbo until I can up grade to a Garrett 35R.
I received the p&c's back and at least 2 of the pistons look dubious. I posted a description & photos on the engine rebuilding board and am waiting for some feed back. I will pack them up tomorrow and send them off to Ollies for further inspection.
After the engine assembly starts I'll send the trans out to get the 7:31 replaced with a 8:31 and add the Wevo bearing retainer & side plate.
