Subject: 2.0 Turbo Engine rebuild?

Salutations: Looking information and experiences on a non-DI '89 9000 Turbo engine rebuild. I have pulled the engine, intake plumbing, wiring, modules and auto tranny from my bent 9000 CD and want to refresh the engine turbo before I attempt to drop it into my NG900 or alternatively donor 5 speed 9000 shell. Auto tranny was done about 12k ago and is for sale in case anyone is interested. Anyway, I am thinking about having the crank/pistons/rods balanced and having the head ported in addition to new seals and pumps all round. I am not looking to build a high performance engine, but rather a smoother and therefore longer lived basically stock engine. Happy with the stock non-DI ignition - will need to replace distributor head. Anything I should consider as 'upgradeable' in the cam or timing chain area or stick with factory parts? Anyone know if the crank stub needs to be modified to mate with a five speed? -- J Dexter - webmaster - all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Tim Tamashiro - Be My Lifes Companion
