I picked up my short block and heads today...it certainly drained my wallet, so tonight it will be assembly time. I'm hoping to have it all back together and running by Sunday. If all goes well, I also had them install the girdle stud kit it was only 140$, if nothing else I think it will help. engine was bored 20 over, crank was turned 10 and 10 and the block decked 10 thou. My F heads were cleaned up (valve& seat grind). and I installed a frost plug in the intake to block the EGR. I had my oil cooler lines rebuilt here in Edmonton (Bosch Hydralics) they do reuse the alumninum pieces, but install stainless steel hoses in the middle section, I went this route as I don't have time to order from off this site (I've been watching that thread). My buddy who works in the local dealership claims they send all their hoses to this shop, because they do not leak, imagine that the local dealer wont even install their own parts. I suspect over time the lines will leak as the aluminun does not offer the strength of steel.Right now CR's old truck is in pieces scattered all over my garage floor. the tranny and TC are laying on the floor as well. If my old 98 does not sell soon, I can see its going to turn into a parts truck, to steal all the improved parts (ie, air box, thermo housing etc), damn for what the 98 owes me I should have dropped in the engine, and sold what was left for scrap..I've also installed the Pyro/tranny/boost pod in the 95, I just have to drill tap the intake and exhaust manifoldsFor all that care I'll keep ya updated of my progress.
