Billet oil pump gears from Boundary pump division just arrived. Maybe it's just me but I love seeing spec sheets and QA/QC reports with parts.

Some minor updates. My replacement glass and airbag have been sourced. The machine shop is nearly done with my block so hopefully we'll have that back tomorrow or Monday and be ready to assemble the engine early next week. I decided to do a couple extra bits while I'm in there.

Whiteline front sway bar as I have no plans to drop the subframe again.

Hasport 62A front motor mounts to complete the mount package. Best time to do it seems to me is when the engine is coming right out lol.

As for your tech tip for today, we decided to use OEM headbolts instead of getting the ARP/MAP headstud and spacer kit.

The ARP kit says to torque to 60 ft-lbs.

The service manual says 30 ft-lbs followed by 2 (reused bolts) or 3 (new bolts) of 90⁰ increment tightening.

After talking to a couple engine builders (including Eman), 66 ft-lbs on new head bolts should be more than sufficient for up to 30 pounds of boost. We will also be using an OEM head gasket.

Stay tuned, hopefully we are almost ready to install everything!

I was shocked when Andrew told me what happened, glad he got you sorted quickly!

That LSD looks awesome, can't wait to see it all done and get a ride with you to see how it all feels :)

As soon as I get it back I'll swing by the shop :)

Apparently in all their years of being there I am the first ever to have my car broken into lol. Lucky me!!

Sounds good!

Yeah, I believe that. I've had mine parked there overnight as well several times, and seen other dollar cars too. Nothing has happened with the amount of security cameras and traffic in the area, but someone decided that was their day to do it

My plan is to get the base map to get the logs as soon as it's installed. I hope that's safe enough. I've seen people with the L15BA reach 300hp at the crank safely around here. So let's hope it goes well.

Yes, Id get Drob to e-tune it.
Is the L15BA in the Sport Hatchback and the L15B7 in the Si? Where can I find the stamp on my engine?

I'ts marked in the block itself. I'd say the sport there in the US has the l15ba as well, from what I've read.
