    Looks like a good start. Pretty much what i started with with my tsi awd. Engine bay was the same. Dirty as hell and looked like something was living in there haha. How many miles are on the car?

    Awesome man. It is a lot of fun. Are you honing the cylinder walls?

    Taking it to a machine shop or doing the block work yourself?

    machine shop, i don't have that kind of awesome stuff in my garage.

    Not many people do! Yeah I pretty much let the machine shop do all the work on my lower end and head. I think it's just easier that way.

    Thats the easiest route. Cheapest is to do things yourself but its a pain depending on what u want done.

    Im undecided on whether or not to go to a machine shop. Im strapped for cash but Id be taking a huge risk doing it myself. Looks like u got a good starter car though. GL with it.

    @ 91gsx - If I was rebuilding a 21-year-old car I would at least take the block in to check the cylinders for concentricity and the head for warpage. Just my $.02.

    yep thats my plan, i have another head already lined up, not using the one on it. think its time to possibly hit some junk yards and see what i can scrounge from old DSM's.

    I didnt Razz but im cheap like that. I did check all the measurements i could. Checked out great like the ol' 4g63 should.

    Haha AJ. I'm a little OCD about stuff like that... What keeps me from sleeping at night is oblong cylinders and leaky head gaskets.

    so i decided to hone the block myself. i have a co-worker who did his 2.3 2g. sorry i dont have more pics, working 7days a week, so hopefully this sunday the car will be out of storage and in the garage. also awaiting parts, have dsmgraveyard 272 cams coming, and awaiting some evo8 pistons and rods as well as a rebuilt head....stay tuned
