The DOHC engine is now IN!! THIRTY ONE PICTURES

So We finally got the engine finished up enough on the stand to get it ready to bolt in the fairlady. We got the head installed for good, cams degreed in, manifolds bolted up for good, CAS mount bolted on and fabricated, etc. Set cams at 110 deg lobe center. We went ahead and just through in a T5 trans for now, as I need to finish up some machine work on the z32 trans. So my friend andy and I installed the engine and trans today. This car has WORKING ac also! I do have to say I couldnt of done all of this without the help and engineering from my father. We together built this engine. So here is some pictures. BTW, the BOV is just sitting on the cold charge pipe. This valve cover is just basicly a dust cover on the engine right now, as I have not finished the real valve cover on the Matsuura.

Re: The DOHC engine is now IN!! THIRTY ONE PICTURES

Congratulations to you and your helpers on getting to this stage. I bet you breathed a sigh of relief when you could actually see that it fitted!

I didn't have a Clue??!!! Until I found Blue...

Re: The DOHC engine is now IN!! THIRTY ONE PICTURES

As I said before "Very nice work". I really hope it yeilds you some nice #'s although I know the true reason you built it, because you can!


A one off setup is nice in it's own right but HHUUMMM I wonder how much $$ could be made if you got together with a caster and turned this into a common build. Of course it would all depend on the costs and the buying market, that's to say if you chose to sell such a thing.

Again, nice work..

Re: The DOHC engine is now IN!! THIRTY ONE PICTURES

There isnt a market for this. People would not want to spend the sort of money it takes to build something like this. Once you even get a casting done, which were talking abot 50 grand to get the mold/core made up. The machine work after the casting is TONS of work. People coud do a 2jz, or RB, etc. for a fraction of the cost.

But yea I mainly did this to use a somewhat stock block with a dohc head. As well as to be the only one in this world to have this setup. I dont like being like everyone else in what I do, as you can see from all of my work, LOL.
