    How ya like to share me little project im working on ill start with some pics of the work so far


    Test fit when I got the motor

    Made up some mounts with scrap lying around and part of a eg6 rear arm sure they'll look nice when cleaned up and coated

    Got some goodies for the engine

    Sitting in nicely now its back as much as I could get it with out butchering the firewall and its as low as I could get it to

    Some progress on the sump have to reposition the turbo oil return as I was under the impression the it returned under pressure which it does not and the fact that the oil gets airrated

    So when I decided to delete the balance shafts a while back I had to block a few of the oil channel's and one of them was under no3 main bearing cap and the crank had to come out luckily for me I tacked it today and found that my bearings are not happy ones so another set back but there cheap and it gives me good reason to do some other work to the motor while I have it apart lots all new bearings new rings new head gasket new valve stem seals better valve springs to get higher rev range mild port and give everything balanced up and cleaned also has anyone ever used a flywheel spacer? To move the flywheel closer to the gear box as I want to use the standerd one

    Picked up a oil catch of a friend for free also scraped my first sump design and am now putting the pick up to the rear of the engine just waiting on another friend to get it cut and folded up and I can weld it up then had to mount the antiroll bar up at the front of the engine to make space for the sump turned out to be fairly easy maid up to boxes and fitted the bushing clamps to them also had to cut up the subframe and put some tube in instead to get more clearance engine is getting overhauled apart from the rods pistons cams and valves everything else got replaced just have to wait untill it can be put back together weld up the intake and I should be able to fire her up considering my wiring harness is wired right

    Just ordered a sr20 twin scroll manifold of Amazon 400euro and iv seen on YouTube you would be surprised of the quality equal length roboticly welded to will have to be modified to fit the b204 engine but I don't mind would have cost a 1000 euro or more to get one made for a saab

    So got the manifold this morning and it will require a bit more modification to fit than I first thought some more of the fire wall will have to feck out of my way and about 2inches of pipe will have to be added on where the runners meet the head of the engine to clear where the balance shaft is located on the block but it will work a chunk of the bonnet will also have to go will get some pics up later
