Here it is. I have to work overtime tomorrow so I'll get to this probably Sunday. I'll crack it open then wait for a custom LSD to be made. In the meantime I'll be swapping out 6th gear and refreshing all the little bits. If anyone is wondering I am going to clean up everything to look like new.

Pulled the head off and didn't feel any grooves or scoring. Just carbon deposits. I'm going to leave the engine alone for now and start disassembling the tranny.

Here's the teardown of the gearbox. Looks like it's been left out for a long time. Hopefully that custom lsd comes through.

Got around to getting more work and inspecting. Going to soak and clean all the parts with pine sol undiluted in a big container. Now I just need about 6 big jugs.

Man, between the bearings and the carbon buildup that motor looks like it had a rough life! Glad you're taking it all the way down

my 1zz was way worse. this motor doesn't look that bad to me. then again, i'm not a mechanic or an engine builder. There's no grooves but I'm probably just replacing them for peace of mind.

I've got some pitting in one of the cylinders. Taking it to the machine shop for honing. If they have to bore it, I'll probably go with 94.25mm overbore and do 12:0:1 compression pistons. I know people will want to boost it but I've had a sunny gti-r swapped sentra and a blacktop swapped 97 240sx. I'm not a fan of turbos. Lag, more issues to chase, more maintenance, more money etc.

I’m a fan of NA myself and don’t chase the all out power either. I doubt you’ll be disappointed

So main cap bolts are out of stock nationwide so most likely will have ARP do custom set. Little things are starting to add up.
