So im sending out my turbo to be completley rebuilt, seals, bearings, rebalanced, everything! Should be all nice and tight when i get it back. And ive got the engine out of the car now and sitting on the ground. So i guess im going to have to start ordering some parts for it and get on that rebuild. It wont get itself done lol.

Im getting the turbo rebuilt from a good friend of my gf's dad. He rebuilds them for a living, mostly diesel turbos but he does do them all. He is on the mainland though and has all the equipment to rebalance it and everything when hes done

ok, since the engine is going to be apart, and i really miss driving my car, im goin to do a bunch of cleaning and painting while its apart.

any of you know some good quality high temp paint? i might get my valvecovers powdercoated, and maybe some other stuff, not sure yet.

ill probably start taking the car apart this week, hopefully have the head off in 2 weeks or so.

i just used hi-temp napa paint, even on my brake calipers... its held up pretty well for over a year

as for powdercoating, make sure ya yank a bunch of shit off your car to get done at once, since they charge per batch, not per items.. so like 1 item would be the same price as like 4

i want to get some of this other paint that is like a fake anodized sorta look to do my PS reservoir and some other small things, but ive heard it isnt so great with heat, even the hi-temp stuff.

id get in there with some simple green, a rag and some water, go nuts cleaning by hand, then use some silicon based lubricants on the plastics, polish up anything else you think needs it. then hope to hell little critters like rats and mice dont come poop in your bay when its done

im goin to call tomorrow to ask, they usually say bring it in for an estimate though, since pricing is based on size, prep work, etc. you can save yourself a bunch of money if the part is clean, smooth, etc

i called around, looks like it would be around $40/valve cover (but thats for a small block v8 valve cover) to get the valvecovers done, a bit more if its a color they dont have in stock. 2-3 day turnaround time...

he said if i bring it in degreased and sanded a bit, the price will go down

so what color do you think i should do? im thinking gloss black and a bright silver....

a color that'll match your car inside and out, no matter what....

id say black or silver, but if you're going to do a color, maybe a dark'ish red or something?
