On the e-dyno I made that when I did the swap but on this dynojet I made 245 / 189 when I initially did the swap.

the edyno is calculated as it is, I basically picked up 40 whp right after the swap which was consistent between my edynos and my dyno pulls at go pwr.

That is what I was more concerned with.

Yeah, car is still sitting in the shop waiting for a new build. Head gasket leak turned into bent rods and piston to valve contact so it will be getting done right this time.

It is being built now by K20z3allmotor. Getting tranny work done(type R final drive), going back to k20, RRC pistons, and some work to the block and head to make it flow better.

I see you're going back to a K20 w/ OEM pistons, guess you didnt like DD'ing the K24 motor with the wiseco pistons?

I actually loved the k24 but wasn't built well in my opinion after hearing what my mechanic had to say. I had a head gasket leak and then my mechanic took it apart to find that the valves were bent, had some piston to valve contact, deck height problem, and some other stuff. $700 fix turned into a 4k fix, fun stuff but you gotta pay to play I guess.

We were gonna go back k24 and do it right but the person we bought the block from was unreliable and didn't deliver the goods so finally we opted to go this route which I wish I would have done to begin with. Can't beat OEM reliability.

Don't let a ****ty built block ruin your view of aftermarket parts :bunny: Did you have piston slap with the wiseco's?

In for the new build though :vtec:

Well...I might just be back in the game! K20z3allmotor (Emmanuel) got the car back up and running. It's solid with an all new motor (and Vit tune). Probably needs a paint job...but whatever lol

Parts list updated. Pics...not so much.
