    Default #49's new powerplant has arrived, let the build begin

    EDIT:

    Alright this is my attempt to summarize to date what has gone on and build a Table of Contents so to speak out of a 'Build Spec' list. I will come back to this point periodically to update this section so that everyone can have one place to go to answer their questions hopefully.

    So as some of you know I recently bought one of NPG's turbo kits and I have now decided to install a 3L as well at the same time. This thread will serve as my build thread with pictures of the entire process from the tear down of the car and the teardown/build/install of the 3L and turbo kit. Here is the build plan and the starting pictures.

    2005 Ford Escape 3.0L Duratec, 43k miles, compression test of 207psi
    -parts to be ordered/installed (as of right now, investigating options with Scat, Wiseco, and ROSS)
    K1 rods
    Diamond Racing Pistons
    4.6L valves
    -parts on order
    waiting for my ST220 UIM to arrive from the UK and then it's being sent out for EH




    Also for those interested all of my original parts will be for sale (since there is nothing wrong with my current 2.5L) at some point in the classifieds. I will also post in here as parts become available.

    Well the first thing I did when I bought this car was upgrade the tranny. I had a how-to a long time ago in the archives. Although I may have to revisit it. I have the updated shift forks, Focus shift tower, Torsen T2 diff running Torco MTF. For the clutch (clearly you missed my GB) I am running a ClutchNet red pressure plate and 6 button disc, which is their stage 3 package. I also have a Fidanza flywheel, but I am unsure as to whether I will be running it or not. Bottom-line I think a call into TH is in order to see what he thinks.

    All parts that I do not use or old performance parts that I will not be able to use will be sold. Right now I know off the top of my head that my stainless steel Trubendz test pipe with the SS O2 bung, WeaponR y-pipe, and Taylor Thundervolt 8.2mm wires will be for sale at some point. Along with possibly chrome powder coated SVT UIM/TB and my T-red powder coated valve covers.

    Yea well, gotta have my toys. I weighed my options of buying the 911 turbo and the Viper and this will still be cheaper then buying either by a long shot. I think I'll have way more fun with this too personally. I plan to finish my Camaro after this as well, but I chose the Contour first because it's newer and not rusted.

    So updates:

    I want to get the best bang for my buck so I've been poking around to find what suppliers can offer. So far I have had limited success with emails. Only K1 Technlogies has replied. So I've begun calling everyone. However here is what I have received so far...

    Rods
    K1 Technologies - billet 4340 H-beam rods, $617.28 + ~$15 shipping
    Scat - Does not show anything in there system, but after prying with the guy on the phone about AER buying rods for the Nobles from them he found a mystery rod for a V6 that they purchase. The guy that deals with them is out until next week. He had no idea what he could sell them to me for either.
    Pauter Machine - Still makes the rods the old part number (FOR-210-530-1380F) is still valid and even more amazing is the fact that they stock them. However even with the special they are running till the end of the month the rods are still $1188.00

    Pistons
    Diamond Pistons - No replies yet, they were closed when I got out of work. NPG sells them in a kit for $899.95
    Wiseco - Custom pistons guy is out of the office
    Ross Pistons - Custom piston forged and dished will run me $660 for the pistons. Upgrading the wrist pins adds another $150
