Clipsejr K24 Build on a Budget

So I've been lurking around on here for a bit since I first thought about buying an 8th Gen. I ended up buying a TW FG in Dec last year. Santa dropped me off 2 bundles of joy which prompt me to let go of my Eg. The second gift being my 1st baby girl, well first child period so can't be upset about those kind of priorities.

Anywho here are a few pics of my last and new project:
Picking her up from Tucson how I purchased

Decided to spray the full car in pearl blue



Had this in her but decided I'd do a heart transplant

With this K24A1 Which ended up getting a TSX K24A2 Head later

Out

IN

Decided I didn't like the red anymore so did this along with changing the IM(RRC), head(K24A2) and routing of a few things.



Then long story short daughter was born and wifey needed a new car so let go of it.

On to the the Fg and in the garage for the first time





And bye bye Pin Stripe/Pretty much how she looks today

When I sold the Eg I took the k24 out as I figured it would fit nicely with the heavier SI the heart will live on in my Fg, built better and stronger! So the RRC made it's way onto the z3. Along with flash pro, J35 TB, and Aem/custom Cai intake system.
Changing the Tbs: J35 on the left with IMT fitting for vacuum.

J35 Pac-maning the Oem Si one.

Flash Pro: Uploaded the Aem cold air Kal for now

Then, got some toys in the mail. Retro Solutions LLC Digital 55w HID Kit

Also bought Mini H1 projectors and relay harness from TRS

Went to work

Dinners In The Oven!

Painted the reflector with a Hi temp Blk

Projector in

Mounted back on the car and testing



Cut off/Will be cracking open the driver side again to fix that

Finished product



Last part I got in the mail: Supertech 87.5 Bore 12.5:1 Comp Pistons

This post is kinda long and I'm at work not workin so will update with a few more pics tonight

Did the work myself and bought the projectors and a standard HID kit. This link will point you in the right direction though: H1DIY

Decided to install my Rdx injectors and paint my intake tube to blend a bit better.

De-pinning the injector clips

And all installed on the fuel rail

Clips in place and all installed back on the manifold

Then decided since I was wrenching and bumper was off I'd paint my intake tube textured black. Was also re-doing my hids so will post pics of the cut off later tonight

Got a few more parts in to help the build from AutoFair

Got the motivation to start breaking it down Sunday:
Ep3 trans is off finally

Flywheel will be making its way over/Clutch im not so sure about yet

K20A2 cams I was running

Just about ready for the engine stand



Once I break it down fully will be sending it off to the machine shop

Going to stick with the stock trans since it has an lsd and a 6sp. The one that was on the engine is a 5sp. Was thinking about boosting the eg with a rotrex setup so went with the 5sp instead for that build.

Was able to make a bit of progress this weekend taking apart the K:
Got it up on the stand/Removed water pump housing

Crank Bolt was not an issue thankfully

Cover and chain off

Cam Caps and cams removed

Box O Parts: Will be posting the K20A2 Cams up for sale also

And the head is off, arp studs exposed

PPA Pistons that will be exiting the block

Will continue to break the block down and hopefully get it to the machine shop soon. Also made a decision about the cams I'm going to run in this setup then pulled the trigger...... SVM will be my cam of choice, in the 312 variety! Will post pics once they arrive

Is just amazing how people tear up an engine as a hobby like it is made of LEGO blocks.

It is true what they say about boys and their toys. I only wish it was as easy as pulling apart LEGOS. Not sure about you, but I built some pretty cool sky scrapers with those things....

LEGO awesomeness:

Dropped the oil pan.
