Engine Rebuild. Work In Progress: Part 2

Hi guys.

The overhauling project is almost done. Below are some of the pictures that i managed to capture and share with you readers!

When i went to the garage, the engine is already inside the engine bay... as you can see above.

bring me back to life!!! :P 

And yeah. Upgrade my fuel pump to aftermarket fuel pump from Walbro. Why? because it is time to change my stock fuel pump with a better one. Other than that, the Walbro fuel pump has a higher flow rate than my current pump. It is capable of providing additional fuel to the injectors when necessary, preventing fuel under-run.

Walbro 255 lph in-tank fuel pump.....

Since my valve cover looks soooo bad (as you can see from the first two pictures above).. i asked my mechanic to help me to respray back the rocker cover. I really love the wrinkle effect which can be seen in most of Honda Vtec valve cover, so i search on the internet and i managed to get the spray can that i was looking for. 

Gox7 Winkle Blue color + Gox7 Primer/Undercoat. 

Stay tuned for more!!!

Engine Rebuild. Work In Progress : Part 1

Hi Guys!

Just wanna share with you guys some update on my engine rebuilding :)

All necessary parts for the engine block:

ACL Race Engine Bearing this time for main & rod, ACL Thrust Washer and  RIK piston rings. 

As mentioned in the previous post, i want to change my engine setup from using P30 VTEC piston to 82mm oversized MIVEC piston.

bye bye p30 piston......

high compression TOTO piston ( 82mm in size (stock piston size is 81mm). No budget for WISECO/CP piston ( T T )

Dont want to expose my timing belt this time. Lesson Learnt. HAHA. 

HKS transparent timing belt cover.

Since i was working during the internal parts installation, i did not managed to snap pictures of the process. 

Below are some picture of the installation process:

4g93 connecting rods (last time using P30 VTEC connecting rods) , crankshaft and pistons are all inside the rebored engine block.......

look at the piston dome...yeah....high compression setup. yummyyyy :P 

bottom part. almost done. 


engine block. 

AGAIN.. i was working during cylinder head rebuilding process.... SO these are the only pictures that i can share (T T)

change all the necessary parts for the cylinder head (new timing belt, seals, grind valve etc)

so fresh so clean....

The work is still in progress. Stay tuned for more readers!!!

Timing Belt..... SNAPPED!

Hi Guys! 

Never thought this thing could happened :( 

Painful moment..... 

Towed my car to my panel workshop for inspection. There are several damages. Need to rebuild the engine back.

Dismantling the cylinder head....

Do you know what does it mean? yes... it is time for new engine setup. For this new setup, after discussing with my mechanic, i made up my mind to go for oversize MIVEC piston (82 mm) and using back 4g93 connecting rods. No more VTEC piston and connecting rods this time :P

I am very sure that this setup will increase my horsepower since using oversize high compression piston. We will see how it goes.
