Thanks

Hoping for somewhere in the region of 800hp/900lbft - and then when I break the block I'll replace it with a Dart one!

I'm not sure that will be enough power...

Well the turbos are capable of breaking the 4 figure barrier - but I like to be sensible about these things!

Finally finished that pulley and fitted it! Tomorrow finishing the alternator and PS pump mounts and measuring up for the belts.

Then I'll have a look at sorting out the wiring for the water pump, alternator and fuel pumps.

I managed to get the steering pump trial fitted and get it lined up with the crank pulley. Had to modify the fluid feed tube, but it's only pushed into the body of the pump and came out surprisingly easily. I need to add a bend on the end of it toward the inner fender in order to keep the pipework neat and tidy. The pump came off a 5th gen Camaro, but I think it's the same as fitted to many late model GM cars, but I wanted one specifically with the multi-rib pulley. I just need to make some proper spacers (1/4" thick) and paint the bracket to finish the installation.



I didn't get as far as sorting the alternator alignment before it got dark. Really must move the car into the workshop....

Please ignore the rusty engine block.... I'll be fixing that when I swap engines out later in the year. Only I'll be painting the next one with 2k...!

And here is the reason all that turbo and small block stuff is for sale.



Its an LQ4/9 (not sure which pistons it has in it). But doesn't have a crank, rods, cam or anything else. Though I do have a sump and some other spares for it that aren't pictured. Got a spare head to replace the badly damaged one. I did get it cheap, and I need to strip it down to check it over, I know there is a small crack near the oil gallery plug at the bottom of the block where one of the sump bolts goes in right at the back (arrowed below - borrowed pic...). Some muppet has broken the boss for the bolt. I might need to do a bit of surgery to fix it, but at least it's not in a critical area. Once I have it in bits I'll check the rest of it over and see if there is any other damage.



So, on the USA trip this year I'll be looking for the other parts I need to build it up into a complete engine and get it installed.

So, this has turned out to be an LQ9... flat top pistons hiding in there. Everything looks like it's new as well, heads are completely clean as is the block inside. The liquid in the bores is oil.

Got the equipment to crack test the block at the weekend. Hoping that the small crack in the thin section at the back of the block can be brazed up.
