Wasnt planning on getting this deep into it but since i pulled the motor i miht as well do it now.

Long story short. Had 200psi on all cylinders except cyl 1 was 160 psi and jumped to 190psi with a wet compression test so with some advice from others i figure ii wouldjust pull the motor and get new rings...

And here are the pistons and rods after i took them out... Rings look fine but why is that rod crooked?


Goes from possible fried piston rings to a bent rod.


While i had the motor out i took it to the machine shop andhad it honed and checked to make sure the cylinders were in tolerance. Also had him double check the rest of the rods to make sure they werent slightl bent at all.

While I was waiting on the machine shop and all the parts to come in i decidedto start mking the motor look PRETTY!











Also figured I would tuck the fuse box under the driver dash relocate the battery and delete the ABS.
This is where i located the fuse box so it would still be accessable.





I will update with pics of the ABS delete once the paint dries...

Sanded and painted everything that was a different color to make everything blend.




And Some of the parts that i got in.
Stg 4 clutch for the boost build coming soon :noes:

New rod and timing chain...



Now im just waiting til monday to balance the rods and for the rest of my parts to come in and i will start wiring the fuse box and making the charge harness for the battery relocation and start putting the motor back together. Will update with pics as soon as i can.

:bow: you'll love boost... it's an addiction :bow:
I know i cant wait. Seriously i cant wait...Now im going to have to save for a couple more weeks til i can finish buying everything. Damn build is putting me back a little. but its worth it.

Also funny how the dealer says my motor and compression is fine with a bent rod... Damn dealers but then again i wouldnt have tucked or deleted anything lol So im pretty happy with it so far.

I cant wait to see the finished product!:shady:
