pics of the tear down.

Image

head wasnt warped but plenty gunked up.

Image

Image


HG failed at # 2 & 3

Image


#4 was on its way out

Image


ARP head studs and Cometic goods

Image


had a shop clean the head up for me and pressure tested and replace valve seals as well..

Image


I have a KO Racing DP on its way as well as a Bored fuel rail..
im sure i wont notice the bored fuel rail but i guess its a good add
with boost being set a 1bar.
should i pair it w a adj FPR?

I definitely want to get it tuned esp w the avcr and might as well see some dyno results in the future. But ill take it easy till then.

man the last couple of days is has been nothing but issues!!!

got the car back together and started right up!
peaking around for leaks & the oil pan gasket is leaking... :x

first the cam seals in the kit wouldn't fit they were a bit to big!

then this! everything was torqued! so off with the x-members
re-sealed it with high temp copper rtv which has never failed me!

then as i was tensioning the alternator and the bolt head freaking snapped!
and that was the last thing i has to do!! before putting her on the ground!

freaking A man!!!1 :bangshead:

I feel your pain brother! I bought a timing component kit which had parts that caused me many headaches! With that being said I highly recommend that no one purchase the DNJ branded kit! But anyways, one of the issues I finally resolved was my oil leak which seemed/s a lot like yours. . mine was leaking from both cam seals that I conveniently replaced while I had the engine out but the seals weren't OEM and leaked so I had to re-replace them with the engine now installed (major PITA)!

If you have another leak after reinstalling everything I would double check your cam seals, it's hard to see them through the small gap from the metal plate for the upper timing cover but could at least get a hand in there and feel through the spokes of the cam gears to find oil.

Good luck!

Yea I learned how difficult it was to do! The cam seals.
But in a stroke of genius I made a seal press just for me and it worked perfectly and went in even!

I have spare metal around n tubing
I took basically fencing poles cut to length after measuring what I needed. Make sure it cleared the cam n sits on the seal centered
Smooth it out, grabbed a big flat washer n bolt and wrenched it in..
Worked out really good!

****need help!!


So after the rtv cured I added oil and started the car.
I noticed that the valve train sounds a bit louder than it did before
I maybe just from everything getting settled back in..

I pop the oil fill cap to see if I could hear it better.
And I felt pressured air with every stroke and to fallow rough idle and it wanting to die..

Wtf..!?!?

I know compression is good as I checked it before tear down
All within spec.

Is this normal?
Im aware that these motors are known PCP, but that much

Read up on other forums and some refer to pcv or rings. N some say normal..

*note that my car was on jack stands so it was at an angle if that matters...

And a jdm motor.

Thanks dude!! Literally I had the car on the ground ready for its glorious return. When I noticed it. Praying nothing else was damaged!..

I went ahead and got a 98+ camry /solar oil pump. And I'll use my 3s gear t-belt according to some other threads it'll be a high volume pump.

And at half price. Yoda wanted $226 n I got an oem for $116 shipped. So we will see.

I have an oil pressure gauge wired up now as well. I thought I installed it wrong but I guess it was working if it read 0!!
lol
So hopefully I'll see some better numbers?
Bgb says 4.3psi at idle and 36-71psi @3k.

So I won't know for a couple of weeks as I planned to do it this weekend and that just got filled w other stuff.

Alright.. time to revive this.. alot has changed since the last update..I've decided to go the caldina route. I found that no 3 was was low in comp as I was getting ready to go with an aem standalone, so I tossed it.

Finally sold off most of the parts and raised funds to get my swap done. Well now that I have most of my parts in or on the way I'd do an update.

So pics to come.. can't wait to get back on the road after missing az beautiful boost season..
