That's definitely looking pretty bad in #1 and #4. What are your plans for building your block? What are your power goals?

I know that IE/APR cancelled their Pre-assembled race engine programs. Are you going to do the machine work yourself?

Integrated Engineering, JE Pistons, and Mahle Motorsport are all good routes.. Good luck my bro

It will happen under boost at speed. Not enough that he will see heavy smoke.

I only ever see black smoke initially, not sure how you would see anything white in that.

If you go to my very first post, where all of my parts are listed, at the bottom of the list you will see all of the parts that I have for my build and in my opening statement, the power goal levels that I'm going for are in the 600's. All of the machine work will be done at a machine shop because I am not messing around with that stuff. I'll leave that to the pros.

Even if IE/APR were still selling their engines, I would not buy one. They were way overpriced and from what I've heard, didn't have the best track record for reliability. How true that latter part is, I don't know, it's just what I've heard.

Forgot to add the pics of my spark plugs to the borescope videos. As you can see, cylinders 1 & 4 plugs are a little wet with oil on the threads near the top while cylinders 2 & 3 plugs are dry.

Don't look too bad and they've been firing good.

Oh I know, which is why I'm not going to lose any sleep over my engine's current condition. To be honest, I have no idea how long it's been like this because my car has been running fine without any issues so now that I know, I'll be taking it easy till I drop it off.

What turbo are you trying to run to get to the 600whp mark?
