  1. Hi all since I have the engine out and on a stand to fit head studs, valve springs, and oil pump though it would be an idea to also change the water pump to save any hassle later on, there is quite a difference in price in genuine pump is it worth it or not and if not any suggestions on what pump to use thanks in advance
  2. Thanks for the info jet all the timing marks on the chain line up where they should make sense now that the timing assembly may swat to the right or left slightly
  3. Just wondering if the bottom end is close enough to TDC it can go slightly to the left but it I do that then the cam sprockets will be out and the chain won’t go on
  4. Thanks a lot for the helpful advise JETURBO
  5. Hi all just a quick question on refitting the camshaft, when I position them at TDC I’m finding it difficult to then put the caps on as the cam won’t sit flush because of the lobes but will when it’s not at TDC, am I missing something, do I just line the caps up and allow them to push the cam down when I tighten, any advice would be great
  6. Hi all im about to install head studs, valve springs and install an atomic oil pump I’ve taken the timing chain cover off and I’m at top dead centre why don’t the yellow links line up at the top of the cams but when reinstalling they must just curious
  7. Hi all few questions regarding Assembling please I’ve tried to gather this information but can’t seem to see it any where whats the best Silicon to use to seal FG sump? What torque do I need to tension the pan and side bolts to Head studs torque setting for nuts? is it normal to see slight wear to side on oil pump gears (atomic) what torque setting for timing chain guides and timing cover bolts?
  8. Hi all im thinking of doing a shot motor build nothing to wild but to hold around 500-550kw, I’ve been looking at the atomic streetorquer kit it’s around 5k mark is any one here running there kit ? any feed back on it would be great, do I have better options for around that price? Cheers
  9. Hi all Just wondering if I’m able to use a FG na long motor with low KMs and put the FG turbo head on I’m aware they run different compression and I’ll have to use the turbo sump for the oil return if this is possible is there anything else required, and will it cope with 500rwk thanks
