Yes, rebuild, with new pan, pump, and cooler. From an eBay seller out of New York. High ratings, seemed like he knew what he was doing.Well, where on the list are you starting?
You have the oil pan, oil pump and oil cooler attached, but nothing else? Is this a new block, or rebuilt?
No...this guyCurious - Is that brokenboxerrepair out of Bath NY?
Everything I suppose. The new shortblock doesn't come with that kind of stuff.Pieces and parts?
How much are you bringing over from your existing engine? Intake and the like? Hoses?
Okay, just wanted to make sure.Everything I suppose. The new shortblock doesn't come with that kind of stuff.
Yes it was a new OEM one. Previous owners weren't car people in the least bit. I'm guessing they had a dealership do it.The best bang-for-the-buck is to grab a FelPro head gasket kit. This will give you all the gaskets from the heads up. You shouldn't need to use all of them, but it's nice to have.
New plugs, fluids... nothing out of the ordinary.
Is the replacement turbo a good, IHI unit? I'd be leery of an eBay special...
If you're going to do it right, then I'd suggest brand new OCVs. It's a chunk of change, but you know they're good.What about things like oil control valves and TGV things. I've gotten a TGV code twice on cold starts lately.
