So after three engines, i've decided to wise up & go forged. My parts are all just about here for my Turbo build, & so i thought i'd create a thread for it. I'll be going with Wiseco Pistons & K1 rods. Now i've swap'd numerous 3Ls, but this will be the first time i'l be delving past the heads into the rods & pistons. I've done enough research to be confident enough to tackle this myself. But in case i run into any issues, i'd love you all's help. Couple of questions tho;
The present 3L in the car that bit the dust has 18k miles. The car was in boost when the rods shot through the block spilling oil everywhere. I thereafter drove it another mile or so to get her off the road. The one i recently purchased from a junkyard that was prepped by a machine shop has about 150k. My question is; Is it adviseable to grab the oil pump off the 18k mile engine despite the failure, or ride the 150k one? Will any pieces of the destroyed rods find its way to the oil pump compromising it's function?
Also, no reason i can't reuse the 18k mile heads right? Thanks all.
