Was gonna do a rebuild on my Engine.... 2nd gen st185.
It seems like a repeating pattern that whoever rebuilds their engine has issues with lower end bearings and scoring cylinder walls.. I have 3 Rotating assemblies... and the only one that looks like its in fair condition is the one with stock bore and pistons... never unbolted. Anyone else have any input on this?
I have so many parts but i'm considering buying a used JDM motor rather than just rebuilding mine. The way I look at it is that the factory uses machines to bolt everything down evenly all at once rather than one bolt at a time by hand. All i would have to do is buy a Gasket set and re assemble mine.... but i have a bad feeling it wont last too long, considering everything i have read on this forum and that before i bought the car the motor had been already JDM swapped, rebuilt and blown up. :(
On a lighter note i'm ahead on my bills, working overtime and saving for the parts I need.
Cannot decide weather to get a 2nd or 3rd Gen 3sgte... Ive got lots of 2nd gen parts but the 205 motor is tempting me (mostly for the ct20 and trans) . That's what I originally wanted to do, before I got jacked for 2k on the 205 clip i bought. Tough getting over that hump, considering all the parts for our cars are pretty expensive. Oh well... if you fall off a horse you don't just lay there - you get back up and ride that F*ckin thing am I right?! 8)

Seems 3rd gen parts are a little harder to come by. I think the decision is more based on whats parts are avail to ya. If you can manage to get the complete 3rd gen , ecu , harness , map sensor , etc etc ... then someone have to do the harness conversion ... So lots to think about ...

I don't know if ill be up and running this fall in time for a meet, struggling with this wiring conversion. I'm not going to splice anything till I figure out EXACTLY what I need to do . On the lighter side i've got the clutch all re built with an ACT unit, to my surprise I found a light weight chromoly flywheel when I was in there underneath a TRD disk and plate. Speed sensor replaced with the mechanical one, 185 mounts are bolted on Also replaced most of the VAC lines . Wiring wiring wiring... then I can slap the engine in and start it up!

Use the 185 harness.
There's VERY little wiring that way. The chassis stays the same, and the engine is very very close.
