My 2 month down time during the recent engine build led to some great stickers made by a local forum member and friend of mine.

Teardown after a #4 ringland failure

My new paper weight

Heads freshly decked and 3 angle valve job. Shimmed to perfection.

Completed EJ257 ready to drop in

I come to derail your thread here too. Lol. Eric labored long and hard setting those perfect valve clearances. I was pissed I never had chance to hear that motor run.

Looks clean homie.

Cincy05LGT 02-03-2013 10:16 PM

Thanks man! I still can't hear any valves. Not even on a dead cold start. Eric is one hell of a mechanic, and a good friend. Cool dude.

Some more pics:

Welcome. Looks like you are starting out right.

Cincy05LGT 02-04-2013 07:07 AM

Thanks for the bump!

Today the new Innovate MTX-L wideband and DW65c fuel pump should be on the way.

PeterJMC 02-04-2013 08:01 AM

Nice looking snail :)

Cincy05LGT 02-04-2013 06:07 PM

Thanks, I'm dying to feel it on a full wastegate map. The 8cm turbine housing should help the power carry through to the top end.

Small update.

Dw65c installed, along with welded tgv deletes. The downpipe with wb02 bung fit perfectly and got re wrapped with DEI titanium. All that remains is buttoning up the intake manifold and hoses. Anxious to get tuning. Sorry for crap cell phone pics.

Hurry up and get that Kinugawa 18g billet coolness. ;)

It's funny that I stumble back upon your thread, because now that I have caught up in mods. I can now say, "hurry up and install your injectors, so you can get off that spring pressure map!"

And I do not think our tuner friend would take kindly to the "stg2 Poo tuned" ;)

Cincy05LGT 07-04-2013 06:56 PM

I'm long overdue for a stage 3 awesomeness update!
