Step II Complete, Engine to Machine Shop

Well today signals the end of the disassemble, this afternoon I sent the block and heads (and internals) to the local machine shop to be reborn. I expect the Cams and the headers to arrive in the mail tomorrow and I'll be out shopping for another tech manual on rebuilding this thing. It's never hard to take apart, just all the little things when you put it back together... I did however take close to 100 pictures during the tear down.

Still need an intake manifold, a stock PI post 1999 will do.

All those pictures will come in handy most definitely.

The biggest thing to keep in mind while building a mod motor is accuracy in measuring tolerances. These engines will not last long with big clearances in bearings. Make sure you have a quality set of measuring tools such as calipers, bore gage, feeler gages, micrometer, etc. Take your time and make damn sure each friction bearing surface has plenty of assembly lube on it when assembled.
