got the motor plucked from the car and totally dissassembled..... not much going on here but the wrong orings and gaskets were used. got the shortblock back together only to notice the pistons protrude from the block about .015" this left us rethinking the subaru gaskets, and ordering a cometic thick gasket. another thing of notice is the very high compression heads from a NA dohc car.

ran into a slight snag on reassembly..... this motor needs a different intake gasket than what we got for it as well as a different timing belt.... gotta exchange some parts. no big deal.
