Final total not including GAS and misc parts and tools required for the swap and other mods i have aqquired - around $9000 or MORE

Daym i spent a lot of money lol..


Well this is my plan..

Since I live in cali i will be building the engine with Honda OEM parts and putting in forged pistons and rods at 9:1 compression and hopefully from research and suggestions i should be able to pass the sniffer test at the referee station.

After that i plan on boosting the car and getting the ecu tuned either with uberdata or other chip.. or go standalone. Well here are the pics of most of the stuff i have bought..


I drove down to afterburners house in Vegas on Sat Night at 9:00pm and got there after traffic around 1:00am and started to go through all the stuff and loaded my car with all the parts :)


This is Afterburners NSX :)



and this is my Scion TC i drove down to load all the stuff with.. i had to put tape and the car bra on because of all the rocks and debree, i didn't want my cf hood to get chipped.


This is the drop for a Scion TC with a h22a and turbo kit in the back and no people inside :)








daymit because of the drive my rear lip kit got melted :(






and this is everything in the car.. i also had 2 people in the car..






this is the drop after i removed all the stuff lol




and here is all the stuff i got -
























and here is the beautiful block :)






















this is how the block used to be



Turbo and manifold










this is how it used to be on afterburners lude






intake and head








PRI axles



Well thats it for now.. right now i'm trying to figure out how to figure out which main bearings to order as well as rod bearings.. in the helms manual it states to read the codes on the block and crank.. but i'm still pretty confused how to read it.. if anybody knows how to figure it out pls let me kno.

-------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 6-9-06 -

Well i finally got my Pistons and Rods :)

They are 9:1 CP Pistons at 87mm Bore = $375 :) and Eagle H Rods =$290







The problem is that the pistons i got were originally owned by someone else but were never used, the problem is that the guy doesn't have the the paper work on the proper installation of the rings and also he already put them on and appeared to have placed on wrong.





Some were upside down and i don't really kno the proper order since for some reason there is one extra ring and one extra groove on the piston for the extra ring..

From my searches on honda-tech most of the information on the installation of the rings didn't describe an extra ring.





which order do the rings go in.. and do i need to gap all rings


also this ring is different from the rest..


also i've been trying to find a place locally to buy a ring gapper/filer/grinder... and no luck.. is online the only place i can get them at?

does anybody kno the calculations for the h22a proper gapping? like the proper formula for it?

PLEASE HELP! :)
