11-12-12 motor teardown prep for rebuild
tore it down to find out what we expected, broken ringlands on the tight cylinders and some bent rods, wich is common for gen3 guts at 650+rwhp, looks like everything looks good! im throwing in some gen4 used pistons and rods hopefully getting them tomorrow and hand gapping them loose for Boost!





5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont on the Dyno.....
Here is the Fairmont on the Dyno yesterday. Numbers were all wonky, but the torque was a corrected 692 RWTQ. With this car, torque and HP generally mimic each other. Smoke show is a new development that popped up after I changed the oil. I was thinking it was due to the very loose ring gap and the 5w-30 I changed it with. So, I went to a conventional 10w-40 after this pull. Still smokes as a result of "gravity," as in when in reverse, coming to a stop, turns or when it is on an incline. I think I have an oil return line issue. Going to pull it off and see if there is a clog or obstruction.





button up and fire ported head swap
finish up everything and start and prepare for Dyno results place your bets!!
