She must be amazing :giggle: as it looks like full list of parts on the table!

Now we came nearer to the final engine setup 馃啓.

So the short block will be left untouched, just checked towards it's healthyness, Migz?
Oh she is dude! Thanks!
Yes all that was done by my guy Dave Marino prior to buying the motor he did a compression test on all 4 cylinders he had this ruining out of a parts car. All passed with flying colors.
Bearings and all planning on just leaving it alone i have faith in the motor! But my goals are to attend that next year God wiling I just wanna drive this thing! hahaha

Decided one day to clean all the grime on the exterior of the motor, before the due date for all the other installation of parts for the build go on. Also since the donor car was an RSX-S I wanted to see if the pump was replaced but it wasn't. So this confirms it being completely stock!

Assembly happened a few weeks back on our first heat wave the northeast had. I started to install all those components of the build one Saturday at my friend's house. It was fun and tough but it got done!

A few days after assembling the motor i grab a few of the exterior components of the engine like post mount bracket and water pump housing from a K20a2 and the corresponding oil cooler setup to get on with K24a. Also dropped some of those rusted parts inside a bin filled with full CLR for drains.

Very nice post, looks like a great step ahead Migz! Must be a good feeling :)! I will pull my engine-gearbox-aggregate next week for repair of the gearbox which broke on the dyno (oil level issue) and to sat the engine for some time till the engine dyno, we build actually, will get finished. I whish you better luck and look for the assembly.
