Yesterday we took apart the block... a bit messy hehe but everything looks ok.

Left the block at the machine shop for a clean up and a little skim on the bores nothing major.

Just needs a new water pump and a set of piston rings.

The car is painted but is still all apart, is been sitting there for more than a month.

The head is missing parts so I may have to buy one from the UK, it sucks really.

The front windshield was cracked and cant find it anywhere locally.... another headache.

My goal was to have it on the road by this time of the year but could not make it, disappointed.

It just dawned on me that the crank will make that hard to do if you have the 16v crank.

If you have the 16v crank you would basically have to start with a complete Optra/Forenza motor.

After what? 2 years?

The block is finally together :D ... just missing a water pump (ordered).

The bottom has ARP rod bolts and studs.

Last time I used SR20 piston rings and went ok, they look/measure the same as C20XE so went with them again.

Why you ask? well bloody shipping kills me everytime I order something from the UK.

Still missing some head internal parts (lifters, springs, etc) but made a quick mock up to make a inventory of all the parts that were sitting around.

For those that dont know, thats a Honda ignition im running a OBD1 Honda management for easy programing.
