motor was totally fine... just started to work on it cause i knew i would blow my d16 with the NOS. good thing i kept it i was going to throw it away and than i foiund out it was a JAP motor... motor was solid just tranny before was gone so i just swapped both ... changing the piston rings Just incase.. milling head .004 and putting in a 2 layer head gasket... this will being me to 10.8:1 the cam is already almost the same spec as the Zex cam so i will keep it...

head mill
new rings
2.3lbs crank pulley
alt pulley
ps pulley
atc stage I clutch & pressure plate & release bearing
aem 5way cam gear..

thinking about pistons but they are next to impossible to get for this motor.. and trust me i've talked with tons of people from d-series.org

Cool, a top floor shop! Nice pics and props for taking matters in to your own hands. Threads like this are inspiring.

What's the piston showing in that photo?

Have you thought about using P29 piston or that's them in that photo already?

Great job.

Nice work!

I think you saved a lot of bundle with your dad doing the machining.
