One connecting rod because he broke a piston. so he got a new piston pressed on. While he was at the machine shop he got his crank regrind. Unfortunately He has the wrong main bearings so the exp has to wait again :(

I guess I missed the story...why only one connecting rod?
Well, what I am doing here is combining two blown up engines. I had one that I spun a bearing on, also ruining the rod, and one that broke a piston. So, I had the bad piston pressed off of a bad rod, and a good piston pressed off of a bad rod to make one good piston and one good rod. The other 3 from the spun bearing engine were all in fine shape.

1st snag....the main bearings seem to be wrong.

Were the mains ground undersize to compensate for damage from the spun bearing? Shouldn't be a problem for strength, but what does the plastigage say is the oil gap between the journals and bearing material? I know you can get .010" and .020" undersize bearings easily.

sucks about the turbo, but the exhaust sounds pretty nice. Check out the new vid on my myspace page... just put up a new video of the blue car.

My next turbo will be a T3/T4. I re-gapped my plugs yesterday, which helped out my car a lot. It was running pretty rough under boost. I still have a bit of a boost leak I think. I did get to blow the doors off of an S2000 and a new Civic Si last night, even with the car not running 100%...or really even close to it. 2k oil pressure is about 30ish if I remember right, with the max hitting about 60. This is running 10/30 dino oil.

Dave: The only two videos I see on there were posted in 2006 and 2007?
