My experience - the cam sensor does not come out in one piece. If it worked, leave in -otherwise get a new one as it's unlikely to come out in one piece.Might as well get some ported heads too. Haha
Are the cam and crank sensors unreliable?
see post 21 for specsAll the bearings look way better than the first, including the #2 bearing. Rod and main bearings look fine also.
Couple questions though:
When I go to send the block to the machine shop, should I send it with main caps installed? Are the main cap bolts and rod bolts reusable?
Does anyone have literature on reassembly (torque specs, sequences etc) this is my first time tearing this engine all the way down, just wanna make sure I can put it back together without breaking anything.
I'm willing to use a different brand. I did some research last night and found Texasspeed has a header/xpipe system for a similar price. I'm sure the green cat headers are better, given that they're triple the price of the regular ones.At least one member has stated the Kooks green catalytic converters are better than the regular ones, but a set of the "originals" are getting harder to find. Are you willing to consider a different brand of headers?
Does anybody know if the chevy SS kooks headers will fit the G8 GT, nobody has the kooks G8 headers in stock and kooks says it will be mid March before they start shipping out but many places have the Chevy SS headers in stock, any help would be appreciatedwww.g8board.comGonna start off by saying it was packaged very very well. Bought original header gaskets before hand which is a MUST after seeing the gaskets they provide I used extension harness from Maryland speed on driver side only Install wasn't that bad, downstream 02 sensor was seized on old system...www.g8board.com
So there shouldn't be an issue with blowby?For blower/ or nitrous, the rings needs to be opened from stock to prevent ring bind and subsequent land fail. Running the gap wider has little downside.
