  1. little engine porn. wish i had my intake here to get a snap shot of it on top. gonna look killer i think. didnt get to the dodge dealer in time to get my oil pump and tensioner bolts today due to work. but tomorrow i will and button the engine up completely. rear main seal shows up tomorrow as well. not gonna be racing this year but it better fire at least.
  2. Well i thought i started a build but apparently it was still my newby thread. So to catch ya up to date. Here is the link to it and ill be posting everything afterwards in this thread. http://modernmoparforum.com/topic/7346-newby-from-the-bulletoh-hell/page-3#entry410452
  3. bet she hasnt seen the handful of blowers in the goss trailer some working some broken i heard.
  4. shorter or longer life span dont remember which it is. what blower?
  5. since im finally about to close up my build. i should be tune and ready to rock the unlimited all out heads up class...which ever one that is. so is there gonna be another one next year in the spring?
  6. so whats the fastest heads up class at cf10?? cuz im taking the W in it unless i gotta add 600lbs to meet min weight. then nah...i wont be there unless i get to add 2 passengers for the ride.
  7. last winter i said i was gonna try to make it. what i ghought was a reasonable time to get my shit done. apparently isnt what anyone elses was reguarding my cars speedy completion. being the ever so impatient person that i am. if my shit isnt ready for 10. im truly going to roll my shit off a cliff on fire. perhaps with a few bodies in the trunk for good measure.hahaha
  8. been taking a loonngg time for sure.
  9. im hoping to make hits in 2 weeks
  10. i gots the engine in my possession now. ordering pushrods and a few odds and ends like rear seal, cam bolt,
  11. yea plumbing and wiring. im so excited about all that.
  12. and.....its assembled. stuffs about to get very real rel quick. hope all this years bad luck is now on to the good luck side of the coin.
  13. fabrication required with turbos. blowers simple hand tools. if that isnt an issue turbo hands down. makes more power lb per lb and with the right tune and converter or stick. just as quickly spooled as a blower. dont let any idiot whos never done a properly sized turbo setup tell you different.
  14. what he is saying is the procharger is whiney as fuck at idle and gets annoying in short order. im a turbo guy...so i dont typically suggest anything else. in saying that, a turbo kit will still make your hair grey or a forsale sign grow like grass in the yard after a rain storm. not for the faint of heart or weak willed car guy. if done it makes the most power psi to psi and more reliable. blowers are easy to install vs turbos.
  15. with android phone go to your settings. select apps. find tapatalk app. select notifications for sound amd adjust as you see fit. you can turn all the crap off including what it has access to. such as but not limited to, storage, contacts, photos, gps etc..
  16. interesting. do i need it if im not running a serp belt setup? 6.4 block 6.4 cover molnar crank?
  17. strange. if you have an aftermarket crank. they need the spacer to replace the machined crank snout end that the older pre vvt engine didnt have. it is to bring the gear further forward due to this universal crank machining. which allows the newer 09+ to use the older 08> crank design. this is the cause of the different depth dampners. that is the way i see it in the instructions anyways.
  18. if yall wondered why i have not been making passes.... my 2nd set of new pistons shipped friday.lol im ready to go fishing at this point. i guess texas might see me this winter down at northstar if my luck changes from suck to not suck so much. or ill put it up forsale and buy some guns
  19. 5.7 6.1 still use plastic i believe. the 6.4 set is just the top vvt stuff that makes the room an issue. i assume you still had to run the crank spacer on yours before adding the lower timing gear? if so 6.4 timing gear is an option for sure. mines aluminum not plastic i looked after my last post.
  20. why in the bell would one recommend a stock dampner on a non stock crank setup is beyond me. get an ati and be done with that madness. i actually wonder if you switched front covers you could go with the 6.4 timing setup? would suck to swap it all over but also get different tensioners that are metal not plastic. just tbinking out loud is all.
  21. yea i was wondering. they had some buge issues with those. kinda why i was asking. the vvt stuff they habent had issues with such as the older prevvt stuff. i was in panic mode earlier today. as my e gine is going together right now over the next couple days finally. i want to stop and order anything to stop from me going through this as you are. i dont think i could manage all that you have had to deal with. i sure hope its a light and easy rebuild for ya.
  22. this a 6.1 block?? what year? wondering what timing set you had on it? as i am seeing timing set failures on these again. kinda want to avoid this myself.
  23. did ya take it apart for inspection yet?
  24. fyi plasti dip those god aweful protectors black. yellow is horrible.
  25. bow about a helper to look for....wtf ever she is looking for...just let her look that is all.
