Oh and another paint session last night, went alot better than the last time but the resaults are similar
Managed to keep this heat for maybe 20mins before I left
And how it looked after drying over night
I'll probably put these doors on soon, once I get all the stuff back into them and the hinges painted. Engine should also drop in this week, just waiting for a new throwout bearing since the old one got damaged in the "puddle", lol
Guess the headgaskets might be bad after all, but this would explain why the owner didn't notice any coolant loss nor overheating. Apperantly a shop claimed the heads/gaskets to be bad but she didn't really know why.
The guy who decided to use torx head bolts on the flywheels/flex plates... He's not cool... I didn't need he bolts anyway so off with the heads
Damn thing is actually pretty huge, lol. But no issues still, and I might even be able to use the stock radiator
Ehh, I'm both stubborn and dumb at times (many times) so I won't be replacing these for now. Even if I wanted to replace them now, I couldn make it before my deadline, living on an island and all. But these should do for now, if not I'll order new ones eventually, but I'm trying to keep the cost down a bit...
A small update too, regarding trying to keep the cost down... I found out the MS2 standalone I had and intended to use wouldn't be able to run the ez30 without some internal modifications since it was set up for a 4 cyl boxer engine. And even then, it apperantly doesn't support the 36-2-2-2 crank trigger for the H6, ontop of not being able to run the vvt/vvl (which I knew). So, rather than spending time and money on the MS2, I'm getting a new standalone from my tuner, which is his personal design and can run all of the stuff the ez30 has along with the dbc (which I am not using cause the tb was missing from the engine). So... Money being spent, and I don't have to much time left before I wanted this to be done, so I figured I might as well have the guy merge the engine harness and wire it to the new ecu. I also asked him for a base map/tune if he could upload it to the ecu before I get it back and luckily for me, he already had a good ez30 tune from when he tuned my buddies car last summer. So I'm getting the harness back ready to plug and play with a tune on the ecu already, super convinient
