    '98 WS6 M6 - SWAPTIME!

    Bottom end is done! Everything is measured, mic-ed ... my instructor was extremely impressed by my block - for 113k +/- ... my crank has virtually no wear on it whatsoever, still at factor specs




    polished crank


    new big ol' cam



    ... today staying after work to assemble my heads and install my pistons ... maybe degree my cam?

    that's why I believe in degreeing the cam, and checking PTV with test springs every time

    shady - i originally was putting it in like you said but i had quite a few burrs on my new cam bearings so i had to flip it down to get them off. it fits like a glove

    mark - yours is gonna be badass. good luck with sealing that garage

    bluehawk - me too! i hope to have a dyno sheet and video friday morning i say tear into yours, it's a great investment esp if you can do the work yourself!

    that's what i'm thinking. unless i go to GM, not a big deal cuz my dad knows the parts manager real well and he hooks it up but it's a 30 mile drive and no time = no good.

    i don't know where i lost it! the springs/locks/retainers/valves were all in a small box together on my futon in the garage and then i put them in the truck two nights ago and now poof, gone. hmm. oh well, i'll find some
