New 4g63 Coming to Life

In my last post I talked about my oil pump owning me. Now we’re past that and installing the new motor.

In assembly – painted all flat black of course!

New bottom end includes Wiseco’s and 1g rods with ARP hardware. I feel dirty having to switch to Wiseco’s. I was loving the fact I was on 2g pistons! Old motor will be taken back to the machine stop for a rebuild and set on the shelf for “next time”.

Set in

Goal is to have it up and running by this weekend. We’re taking it to Ben Hanks Racing next week for them to install the roll cage. I found them through Vince and his ’02 Z06 (that recently ran 9’s, shameless plug for GM Gearbox Magazine).
