New engine I got ended up having bad rings! low compression(90psi) on one cylinder and 95psi on the rest.

I had major oil leaking because of all the positive crank case pressure from bad rings.

This is at idle...



that would be abou 55psi!!

Called the guy up, he completely backs up his work fortunately. and he is replacing it with a new one tomorrow for free! woo!

Glad I at least bought an engine from a guy who isn't a scam

wellll, looks like the the guy I got it from is pretty stupid. I got the new engine back(he put different heads and rings on), and I got it running and it would not stop popping from cylinder 1! adjusted the valves, set the timing, looked it over... did NOT know what was wrong.

took off the valve cover again cuz I figured the exhaust or intake valve was sticking.

The guy did not put the pushrod into the little hole on the rocker arm!!!! so the valves weren't even opening. all fixed now. car runs great!

Haven't got the motor back in yet but here are the pics you requested.

Reinforced Tie Rods



Roll Cage







Rhino Liner On top and bottom of the pan



Before the IRS conversion was sagging a bit lol




Still sagging after conversion




Took the front suspension apart for a cut and turn. Ended up having to buy a new beam since mine was bent beyond belief so I bought an already cut and turned one and swapped all my parts from the old beam into it.








Finally Reindexed rear with IRS and Ball joint front end cut and turned




Fuel Cell mounted behind seats not completely finished yet




yeah, it happened jon6.0 haha
