finnally i got the block to the machine shop :mrgreen: ive been working crazy. So they said they need the main caps and bolts to bore the block, and hopefully i marked them because its been awhile, all my bolts are tagged and labeled in ziplocks, but i dont think my caps are, if not what do i do, order new ones?!!? :angry-teeth:

Progress!

People really love the tial wastegates, it makes me even more curious as to what other good options are out there. I went with a precision myself, but I feel like tial, and precision are too mainstream. Either way, its an awesome wastegate! Can't wait to see more
Come at me bro

so I just realized my tail wastegate is either a weld or "v" band type im not sure but its not flanged....the store bought ready made ka24e manifolds are flange type, ill either have to get a custom made manifold or mod one you can buy....any suggestions? I have turbo manifold "gladman" on that had its external port sealed, I was going to use it with my t25 but things happen and I had to move bla blah blah etc....wonder if I should just mod that one, or is that too much welding on a manifold (structure integrity issues)

here is the two marks I noticed, I call the machine shop and he basically told me it wont affect anything and that it didn't "clean up" perfect on the top in that area but should be good

more pics...sorry I posted pictures late, a series of unfortunate events lol. Hope 2015 is better without issues. had to move from New Mexico to Maryland, while I was trying to build my engine, 1st machine shop didn't have the time to start anything (very small town a lot of request and builds going on), I was in the middle of nowhere, so building a import was hard enough. Enough with the excuses I still pursue my end goal of turbo'ing my ka and getting my car ready.

Block, finished painting:

Head: (thanks OandJperformance!!) haven't decided if I want to go mechanical+cam combo (if its straight drop in and I don't have to shave anything in the head that is, everything is OEM except the valves and outer springs.
