  1. Well it's going to take horsepower either way. Just looking over some of their tech notes and they recomend a alternator that has 75 amps at idle around 180 amps full output and this is not peak power this is continuos output, this will be a big alternator around 250 or so amp and will take multible belts to drive it providing you can mount it in the first place.
  2. 2l will do it, with the trans level fill it until the fluid just starts to seep from the fill hole. Use non hypoid oil only.
  3. Imho you could sell a few to folks that really want a corect restoration of a early car, but my guess would no more than 10 or so, but that's just a wild ass guess.
  4. I'm not a prolific engine builder but here's a few things I found on assembly, first measure everything several times and write down what you measured, I don't care if J.C. Himself is your machinist, measure. Second hot tank, smot tank, clean everything, every hole passage, bore and surface with hot water and dawn soap untill you can dry it with a white paper towel and have no black spots of any size at all, I clean the bores with atf and paper towels until spotless, brush out all oil passages, and dry everything with compressed air followed by wd40. Get a old pillow case to cover the block when your not working on it. Then follow good assembly practices. The only place I use sealer is the 2 1/8th" holes where both front covers meet the head/block.
  5. Don't forget to port match your manifolds what ever induction system you go with.
  6. Also weak or broken engine mounts can cause the distributer cap to hit the firewall pushing the cap into the rotor. I don't think I have ever seen a worn distributor drive gear on either end the cam or the distributor at least to any degree.
  7. I don't think anybody is down on s-14's in 2002 it make a great car even greater. I think starting with a 35k buck engine before it's even installed is a different kettel of fish altogether.
  8. Your overthinking your fuel return presure should be near zero because you have no restriction in the return to the tank, it's no different then your sink water has presure comming out of the tap but no presure at the drain, same thing on the fuel return.
  9. Just remember R Crumbs mind is normal and the standard we are all judged by!
  10. The car looks great, and the best thing is when you drive it or work on it your dad will always be with you.
  11. I wonder if the example Toby posted overheated, what with the fan on backwards and all?
  12. Wow and no apparent matinance or rebuild records, oh well they are cheap to rebuild, right? I hope it works out for them.
  13. The 40 is the lock up if it's a for sure 2002 diff, 25% afaik started with the e21 diffs. I might be wrong there just not many 02 lsds around but if memory serves me they were offered as 40% 0r 75% option.
  14. My thought is they didn't use a split washer because the pully itself is made out of such soft matirial it would just tear it up and never get a good lock, that is also a low viberation location and that nut doesn't seem to want to loosen up.
  15. Alot here on improving the power train, all good, two important things to add are lightness, already a light car and not a hell of a lot you can remove but keep a eye on it, and the other thing is track school regaurdless of how good a driver you are it's always worth it in the car your going to be driving.
