I just noticed your tips in that picture above look like an Audi symbol. Maybe it's because I recently picked up a S4 though. lol
Good luck on the build.

Tear down from last night...
more to come 10 pic limit
That wraps it up for last night... I'll be posting pics from today in a moment
K1 rods are now ordered. Pistons will be purchased through CP Pistons-Carrillo through Wagamon Bros. Will finalize those details sometime early next week. Most likely will be honing out the bore by 0.5mm to clean things up for the new pistons.
This morning I took the rest of the engine apart.
Oh yea and to keep my bolts in order for the oil pan and block I made this...
UPS driver number 1 dropped this off...
That UIM is fuggen clean ...oh it looks dead sexy
Do the ports look bigger? have you taken measurements before and after?
that clutch doesnt have the larger rivets or completely closed windows. what have i been telling you guys about the clutchnet discs for the last year or longer? the outer disc can be disconnected from the hub just as easy as a spec with those..... less likely to fail than a spec, but still likely.
mike your block looks pretty good i hope it turns out well. has anyone else noticed that his crank has WAY less machining done to it? the 2.5L crank i have from my SVT motor is completely machined on every side of the counterweights (porkchops, if you prefer the simple terms) i assume this would be considered "knife edging" which the 3L crank is not. are all 3L cranks this way?
R.I.P. CSVT "clockwork" totaled 10/29/10 n/a 3L 220whp 212 trq
