So I need to see if I can save the crank. Need to have the head decked, possibly rebuilt? Not sure what kind of head work I need to do. Turbo needs to be evaluated for rebuild as well. All new bearings and new heavyweight rods.

This is looking good! I wish I had the resources to do this with the turbo Laser sitting in my back yard. It's an '86 XE, same color as that daytona with black leather interior... :(

Your build is amazing sir!!!!! You could eat out of that engine compartment :love: I could potentially be in the market for just about anything you got engine wise :D

Love the 1st gen laser styling, These cars are amazingly easy to work on, don't need a lot of special equipment. I need to hurry up and take the crank to work to measure it up... kinda lollygagging waiting for the finances to shore back up again. Babies are expensive!! Hoping to get that done this weekend, as well as drop the front crossmember.

Are you still rebuilding the engine?

Something to consider: The 2.0/2.4(neon) head, including the 2.4 head and mitsubishi 420 head, can be swapped onto the 2.2/2.5 block. Makes for a pretty awesome engine, and opens up an entirely different array of performance parts to you.

yep, something I might do down the road, but not planned for the initial rebuild. I don't want to hadd another set of variables onto a completely rebuilt engine. :dead:


Progress has been stalled for the most part, just had to break the piggy bank for the daytona to buy new tires for the Pacifica. :baller: Still, I have lots of other things to do, like finish cleaning out the engine bay, dropping the cross member,plenty of interior work to do. Just haven't had time. :glum:

And now for something completely different.


Rather than spending the money refinishing and upgrading the weak and damaged components in the first motor, I decided to go a different direction. Picked up this little Gem:





drained the oil and flipped her over:

Moment of truth (pans been bounced off the ground a few times, sheesh!)



Tada!




Pretty clean.

preliminary look is good. No metal in the oil, no obvious bad bearings, everything is tight. I will take off all the caps and plastigauge the thing, but it looks very likely that I won't need to tear this down right away!!!

Look at the cross hatch!!!!!


2.5 POWAH!


Turbo head. The one on my basket case motor is not.


Happy Birthday!



SO for less than the cost of getting the crank and rods redone on the old motor I have a turbo common block and heavyweight rods. This whole engine is in far batter shape than the other.

Balance shafts will come out (sucks up 15 HP) and I'll put the old 2.2 pan and pick up on. I'll more than likely still take the head off and have the valves done and the head tanked, so I will still swap in the TBI cam.
