BTW, got my head, IM gasket, and IM attached, IC piping back on and hoses/clips attached all tonight. Torqued per manufacture specs on the head, set the head and bottom end to TDC. Sorry for the crappy pic, took on my blackberry...


Tomorrow I should be picking up the Crank pulley holder tool from AutoZone (had to order) and get back to work tomorrow or Wed. to disassemble the timing belt cover and make sure everything is at top dead center and re-attach the belt. Also check valve clearances, install turbo, fill it up with coolant and bleed, and fill oil and turn it over finally.... Also hope to sweet lord that there are no exhaust/oil/coolant leaks... ugh.

Thanks! Me too... had to take a break from working today, but I did pick up the crank pulley tool today. Will be able to fix timing, adjust valves, and re-assemble the rest of the motor/turbo parts.

If I have time, i'll clean out the egr (since I had to buy both the plenum and the manifold gasket as a kit), vtec screen, and IACV while i'm at it....

Re: Going for a re-tune....

Well took a impact wrench to the crank pulley nut, and could not get it off after trying for a good hour. I have too small of a compressor. Can't provide enough torque for long enough to get it off. So I bought a hand impact driver by craftsman and going to try that tomorrow...

In simple terms. No and no. No gains, no way of tuning the fuel map, or no fuel system/injectors to support the extra fuel needed to compensate for the required a/f ratio.

I tried that. I tried even standing on it and using all 200 pounds of me to break it loose. (yes, the car was on jackstands). I tried that for about an hour. And I also tried 175psi of a 20gal air compressor for an hour. This was all with the crank pulley holder tool too..... WTF?

SO i'll try a impact driver and see if that instant blow of torque can get it loose. If not i guess i could try heating it just a bit....

Re: Going for a re-tune....

thats why i always go to a local shop and have them hit it with a 1/2" impact to loosen it, then i limp home


1000000000000000 times easier
