Ok small update i got slightly distracted by my jeep xj buggy project i started over the winter so the poor girls been put on the back burner off to the back corner of my driveway. This is how she sits now but i finally got sick of looking at the engine just sitting on the stand in the corner of my garage so i decided to tear it down and see what condition its in and if i can use the block. Starting off i might of got a little to excited and started mocking things up to give me some inspiration lol

Ok now down to business this is how it sits now





Started by taking off the old filter and draining the oil



Then striped off the thermostat housing then the water pump



Then i pulled off the crank pulley,timing chain cover and cam towers






And finally decapitated the bitch and took the head off and it looks like someone used that stop leak crap in the coolant at some point cause some of the passages are clogged up with something.

If you decide to part it out instead, let me know.

Otherwise though, I'm watching this with great interest.

i came very close to parting it out a couple times last year cause my GTO and Jeep buggy are eating up most of my fun budget but i decided to give it one last go

Got the heads off and everything looks pretty good considering it came out of my old black 99 alero that had almost 200K on it. Heres the old heads next to the P&P heads with bigger valves i had sitting on the shelf from my last build.





And an up close view of the Intake and Exhaust ports






And now the rotating assembly i dont really know why i numbered the rods/pistons seeing as im going to be using all new ones but i guess it doesn't really hurt anything so why not lol







And finally the block looks great and should definitely be usable it doesn't have any dings or grooves in any of the cylinder walls at all

Should flow pretty nicely. I'm a bit green with envy lol.

your cam profiles look nice. Does the intake cam have the power steering hex and cam position sensor pad?

Also, did I see you mention the 2.3 oil pump swap?

Ya i'm definitely going to do the 2.3 oil pump swap and probably do some crank work(reduce weight,knife edge and maybe an oil shedding coating). The cams will fit everything like stock its a custom grind sold years ago that i managed to grab before they stopped selling them. The grind is supposed to be really great on the street with boost but we will see after i get it all together and get some dyno numbers and compare them to the HO cams.

Unless you have or had a bad LIM gasket (3400 V6), which could get coolant and oil vapor into places it shouldn't be, I wouldn't worry about it that much. You still have to change it, flush out the system after 5 years or 50K miles, though. And as far as I know, the formula was changed some years ago.

You do have to be very careful to keep air out of the system as well. The LIM gasket should be replaced with the Felpro upgrade when possible.
