  1. The Rear Coolant pipes I've made and welded myself blew a few holes or else would of been alot better looking Heads back together just mocking it up with the stock front facing plenum no welding needed Radiator hose connecting the thermostat housing and head now just need the radiator hoses to the radiator and need to get a 180 degree bent pipe or try mock up another piece to sort the water pump sides of things but at the moment ive just found a 4g63t full package so buying that for the full forged setup later on also couldn't get any cheap engine mounts so making my own one piece solid mounts for it should be done tomorrow
  2. Ok here are the pics of what i have done used steel putty to extend the mounting surface drilled and tapped the hole and bolted on to head so now i just make the radiator hose piece go to the side piping witch will have the thermostat housing welded onto it then it will have the radiator hose going from the thermostat housing to the top radiator hose will upload pics of when its complete
  3. update time got my new 4g63t head gasket 30 bucks nice discount at repco just mocked up the engine to get pics as head is all together now all ready to go on just sussed a evo 5 intake plenum $91 delivered so its front facing so i will be modding that to suit my engine i have put the engine in the galant to see how space is between the firewall and thermostat housing and there was absolutely none but there was a space between the cam angle sensor so all i need to do is make the thermostat housing less protrusive than the cam angle sensor i thought and thought n thought again then tried a few ideas none worked that wouldn't involve a lot of welding so i slept on the thought the next day i came up with a brilliant plan and i will tell u all next time when its all done with pics to explain update soon
  4. Bottom end is now all reconditioned looks very nice indeed Now up to the head reassembly have just finished doing the valve lapping as replaced 2 valves as they had minor pitting and had some better spares so used them the only parts i need for the head is the head gasket and the valve stem seals
  5. picking up oil pump gasket in morning from Mitsubishi dealer so that will be the bottom end done n need to find the original oil filter housing lol then just need to get the exhaust valves all cleaned up and new valve stem seals n that the head done then just save for cambelt and cosmetic head gasket to handle the turbo and lower the compression a little....maybe or might keen it standard compression then engine mount rubbers put engine in do the interior wiring part of the loom in get flywheel and clutch kit modify my drive-shaft and we are away then it will be time to do the interior and exterior (keeping the same color will keep the thread updated in each part with all the details that i do so keep tuned
  6. took all the bearings back out and gave the block a full cleanup dont like old oil in my new engine looks very nice the wet patches in the pic is just the oil for installing bearings Tightened up main caps for the last time new big end bearings are all in with pistons etc spun the balance shaft bearings 180 degrees to remove shafts blocked up main balance shaft hole with cold weld metal putty stuff my cousin used it with his and said works very well no leaks ever inner of the oil pump showing the cold weld very nice and clean outside with cold weld looks all good but does the job
  7. and sorry Spencer for flooding your inbox didn't realize i was still in the message bit to focused on getting it all perfect lol embarrassing
  8. GOT MY STOCK TURBO EXHAUST GOING TO MAKE A NON TURBO EXHAUST FROM IT AS WELL SO IF I WANT TO SWITCH BETWEEN TURBO AND NON TURBO I CAN JUST NEED A FLANGE
  9. HEAD DISMANTLED NEED NEW EXHAUST VALVES UNLESS THESE A WAY TO MAKE THE OLD ONES LOOK LIKE NEW A LITTLE (HUGE) FRIEND VISITED BIG END BEARING CONDITION PISTON HEAD CONDITION NOTICE THE PITTING UNKNOWN WHERE THAT CAME FROM BUT TOOK TO RECON PLACE TO SEE IF THEY WERE ALL GOOD AND HE SAID TO JUST FILE THE HIGH POINTS OFF AND THEY WILL BE SWEET SO I HAVE DONE THAT IN THE PIC CRANK CONDITION BEFORE IT WAS CLEANED SO HAS LITTLE DUST BITS IN THE OIL IT CAME UP VERY CLEAN AFTER
  10. are these the same the new bearings are acl no slot bits on the oil holes but the new ones are tapered unlike the old ones which are straight threw holes
