Great quality pics, How much was the total cost of restoring the engine?

Still working on it, but I'll tally it all up when I'm done. What's left is some rusty brackets here and there in the engine bay that I'd like to paint before I drop it back in. My brother took my alternator apart so he can shine up the housing lol. He's got seals to replace on the transmission and I've got all the hose clamps that I want to try blackening with an Eastwood kit I bought. Shouldn't be more than two weeks tops to finish. Only finally got a decent weather day up here yesterday to hose down the engine compartment. I'd like to throw a bit of wax on the painted surfaces in there as well.

Damn that is really impressive, practically looks like a brand new motor. That must feel so good to know your motor has been thoroughly cleaned inside and out, and that you’ve protected it for the future. That is one regret I have with my swap, but didn't have the time to clean/paint everything while the motor/trans was out.

Your pics were incredible to look through, that thing’s gonna look pretty sitting in there. Problem is now you have to deep clean the bay to match the engine lol.

That is an amazing and detailed rebuild process. Did you notice any power differences since the rebuild? And if you don't mind me asking, how much did it all cost you?

Aiming at dropping the engine in the sunday after next. Then I'll tally up receipts. I should probably have some anti-nausea meds on hand for that lol. Given how absolutely sludged intake manifold, idle air valve, throttle body, VTEC solenoid were, I'd be surprised if power and gas mileage aren't improved.
