Hey everyone i havnt posted for a while and decided too

I got this rvr hsg 2 ish 3 years ago from a nice guy in nsw.This is the car that had the evo 7 ecu put in to it. should be a post about it somewhere in this forum. the car was tuned by mio

When i first got it it was not running right so i fixed all that up it ran so well till now.

Anyways mio took me for a ride in his stroker evo and it was a insane car it got me thinking maybe it time for me to take it there.

Ive got wisco pistons 9.1 compression Manley rods and eagle crank it worked out to be a 2.3L stroke

Car still it 272 cams ive changed the exhaust to 3.5inch turbo back and a intercooler that is massive just cause i can. Has a haltech now flexfuel is up and running

Is there any advice i should take in account when putting this together?

The block is at the machine shop getting bore to 85.5 and decked20190906_235323.jpg 20190819_185547.jpg 20181107_001841.jpg 20190905_210039.jpg 20190903_172603.jpg 20180330_030846.jpg

It's been off the road since 2012, so it's been quite a long, slow process to find and source the parts needed.

Once the mechanical work is complete, the only thing is the usual roof rust to be done and it will be ready to go.
