Now we have assembled the crankshaft, rods and pistons. All tightened with the right nM and all.
BUT, is the crankshaft suppose to be "hard" to turn around? Or should I be able to do it with to fingers?
There should actually be a torque spec for it, as in 'not more than xx ft.-lbs' ... But as others have said, you should be able to turn it with a fairly short ratchet with no troubles. Make sure it is smooth all the way around (constant drag).

Jeah about that.. With all the pistons in place...When they meet at the center (the pistons) its harder to turn around. But only when they are at the same place.......bad?

Okay Im kinda lazy with the updates...The block and top is installed.. Doing the fuelrail and shit..dont understand shit of this aftermarket stuff from wolfkat..Just ordered a turbo from precision, handles up to 540bhp.
Decided to remake the whole electrical system..Make it sweeet to look at. We are both electricians so shouldnt be that hard.

NEXT I need to decide on witch clutch to buy.
And after that..Paint the engine bay->shuve the engine back in place
