So some of the pin holes are used for PCV?

What pin holes do you speak of?

And I have a feeling that marker burnt off rather quickly... Also the only person who would ever take this motor apart is either me, or someone in a scrap yard when I finally get rid of it... I honestly never re-sell a vehicle to anyone. I drive them till they are dead.

So far so good.... Haven't full boosted on it yet but it appears to be running ok. Just giving it a bit of an easy break in, then I'll pound on it.

Forged pistons are noisy! Sounds like a Jetta Turbo Diesel when its cold! LOL

Looking good Jon.

Are those cam phasers on the top cams - the silver housing vs the black housing on the bottom?

Yeah it has AVCS on the intake cams only. The newer 2010 motors have dual AVCS

Since no one has probably heard this car before here is a quick start up vid... someone was asking how quickly my oil pressure light shuts off during start up so I made this recording... I should get a walk around when it's warm so you guys can actually hear it.

In the diagram it looked like one wrist pin hole had a plug and the other was set up for a tube.

Better Vid.

And Engine bay all done

The wristpin holes three are plugged by big 14mm alan socket lugs... and one other has a plate with o-ring. The one on the rear is set inside the chamber that is used to eliminate most of the oil vapor from the PCV system but thats about it. They were all sealed with RTV when going in.

Jon any thoughts on upgrading to a front mount?

I know Geoff blew his apart in no time.

He doesn't have a factory one. His is an upgraded Perrin unit that has TIG welded end tanks.

Yeah no need, already started to separate the stock plastic tank IC, I got the perrin for 300 and it was brand new so I'll stick with it for now. :)

Ah - guess I should have noticed the either painted or powdercoated black unit wasnt stock.

How many miles were on the car before the engine took a dump?
