Hawkeye STI build

Recommended Posts

Finally got my engine out and in bits. Thrown up a few surprises. What was thought to be a small crack in the exhaust housing of my turbo which had zero play is apparently destroyed inside according to Turbo Dynamics. But let’s hope it all goes back together eventually.

Also make sure the bores are properly checked for tollerance, they can oval.

A local breakers has a second hand sc46 up for sale for £900

Think alyn charges about £1k to close deck and machine a block ready to assemble

Last i hear it was nearer £500 for the CDing

 

only hicup with second had sc46 is you dont know how its been treated or what version it is (been revised several times)

When i enquired a costing from Alyn, that was for all the machine work needed to just assemble the bottom end ie rebore , hone , face work to the deck and cdb inserts

Definitely always a bit of a gamble with any 2nd hand parts but it depends on how deep the op's pockets are .

My pockets are fairly deep but I've only got short arms

Hence why I've never pushed my budget build with a £2k turbo and only have 360hp from my £150 turbo

He quoted me £450 to close the deck too. I have just seen the SC46 for sale to be fair. But like Tidgy says, it could be nakered and not even a rebuild would save it. Big gamble. Tempting though.
