Hot tank was 50 and yes just the block at this stage the head i am going to use is still on the car.
But I will get it acid dipped as well when its time to do the head. The head is a few weeks away yet, im waiting on the valves for that to turn up.

Im trying to work out the best place for my turbo to sit and still have equal length headers.
Dont tell the wife about her vacum hose thats gone missing.

Scootag, even though you blanked out the naughty word it was still rather obvious. Some members find it a little crude, hence the reason I changed your post (just in case you were wondering) :).

Waxhead, your wife is going to go mental, but its for a worthy cause. Funny question, but who did you get to take the picture, an accomplice? :)

HA!

Hopefully your wife is as understanding as mine.
I have had a gearbox in our hallway, pulled it apart in the laundry, used my bath tub as a parts washer etc, etc.

Looking good Mate, handy having a tech workshop at your disposal ;D

What are the plans for the block, I assume the bores are in good nic or are you going oversize, stroker crank or standard...........

Im not going to big bore it as i dont see the need when you can just give it another pound of boost
Im looking for some forged pistons and rods
Rods are only 700 so thats not bad pistons go a bit higher. I would like to be able to rev this thing hard if i feel the need and not so sure about the cast pistonbs at that higher rpm (8000 is the figure i have in mind)

Im working hard at the moment and have just made the two merge collectors for the exhaust today.
I have decided to put the turbo in the middle of the engine instead of up the front , will be better supported and will also look better in my op
