Project STurdteen: Building the SR20DET Engine

Next, the rocker arms, cams, cam oil squirters and timing gears and chains are installed.

Rathyna’s engine is almost ready to go.

With the STurdteen’s engine no longer a worn out pile of crap, we will next focus on rebuilding her worn out transmission and getting the engine back in the car so we can start sorting out the rest of the mess.¬† With our mods her car should have a solid platform that will be much more reliable than what she had.¬† Stay tuned!

  1. For competition engines, I prefer not to use them because they are torque to yield and they stretch and take a set. They can only be reused maybe once and it’s a good idea to change them every time on a serious engine.

  2. for the mains, did you guys use arp’s torque spec or something else? I always thought it was a bit high

  3. Are you modifying the upper oil pan to clear the windage tray or did you find/make a spacer? the jet nuts on my tray touch the upper pan and require me to mod my pan.
