The beast is back

Well. I'm sure I had a thread once upon a time but it appears I am so inactive it's been deleted so here goes. I'm back from the dead! Well almost. Rebuild is in progress and it's been a long delayed and distracted process bit it's near coming together. Many photos videos and other to follow.

    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
    Argo Rods
    ATS machined 5sgte stroker crank
    ARP 625+ headstuds
    HKS GT 3040 turbo
    m800 motec
    water injection
    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.

    so take a look at damage on that piston eh? im pretty surprised the cylinder survived. Head has been restored and you can see the new ceramic coated ATS HD pistons that will go in. week or 2 away from building the short block. busy at work. hope u like the pics.

    Sounds like an epic build with some great parts. Looking forward to having more cars on the road.

    Couple updates. Exhaust housing coated and looking sweet. New rubber for the rears and waiting on a couple parts from the US 🇺🇸 to progress the build.

    Ok so I've assembled the engine. Wish I'd paid closer attention to what seals and stuff I needed - delayed the build over and over with just tiny orings and missing dowels and random stuff like that.
