    • Well tomorrow some engine teardown could begin. I'm going to harbor freight today to pickup a full set of wheel dollies so I can move the car around easily without having to start it up and drive it. Looking to remove the intake, radiator, and harnesses tomorrow if I can.

        • Alright been a while since I've really made an update, but here goes...

          Finally heard back from the shop after dealing with Wiseco, CP and Diamond Racing we decided to go with Diamond Racing. I'll be dropping off one of my 3L pistons off at the shop tomorrow afternoon for them to send in to Diamond to make the pistons for me. I'm also getting upgraded wrist pins and rings. Hell the rings are going to be $213 Getting the pistons and wrist pins for like $680.

          As for the paint job I talked to the guy today and apparently I didn't send the details to the right email address. I forwarded him the old email and he thinks he'll be able to get back to me by Monday with a quote.

            • Nice, I also have semi-custom Diamonds in my 7L.
              Also have the Hellfire rings and tool steel pins.
              Very good idea for a turbo motor, I'm assuming these are what you'll be getting when you said upgraded rings/pins.

                Not complaining about the pistons and pins... I could have gotten ROSS pistson for $660. It's the rings that I was shocked about.

                • Mike, I'm really enjoying this thread. Keep it up!

                  I probably won't get to see it for the "debut" at SZ because unfortunately it has fallen on the same weekend as my 30th B-Day. So maybe a MN meet of some kind or I'll have to wait until Carcraft.
                  2000 Contour SVT #180 is sold.

                    Bummer on SZ... but yea it's your b-day so I'd probably do the same.

                    I'm sure I'll pull together some sort of car meet in MN before CarCraft. We usually have at least one meet where we meet up at the top level of the east parking ramp at MOA and head in for some grub.

                        I went with the K1 Technologies billet H-beam 4340 steel rods that cost me $617.28 plus shipping.

                        I have not dropped off my piston with Wagamon Brothers yet so I don't have the details on the rings. However they are made for high boost applications and I believe what he told me was that they are nitrided rings made of a ductile steel, which is why they are so expensive.

                        • Probably 'Hellfire' rings if you went with the Diamond pics, google them, very good stuff. I run them.

                              I just had Wagamon Brothers clean it and hone it, nothing else.
