Re: The beast is back
Bringing 'docs' MR2 back to life.
It has been a hell of a journey so far and there's so much still to do. i was hoping for a head gasket leak and wham bam thank you mam wack in a new gasket and machine the head but ooooh no. detonation of the pistons and foreign object in cylinder 1. HKS stroker crank was cracked. Cracked header. So lucky i didn't destroy it and total the block and head!
Main components of the rebuild include:
late model st205 block and head
head fully worked stock valves. repaired and ceramic coated
HKS 272 cams and cam gears
Wiseco custom HD ATS stroker pistons. ceramic coated
ATS machined 5sgte stroker crank
ARP 625+ headstuds
HKS GT 3040 turbo
ceramic coated HKS headers
Ceramic coated HKS dump pipe
custom electronic water pump
HKS 1000 cc injectors
HKS fuel rail
twin bosch fuel pumps
something ignition. cant remember
and lots of other things.
I'll have more details when i start the rebuild and put some effort into organising my photos and the whole story.
internals getting balanced this week.
