    #49's new powerplant has arrived, let the build begin


    Alright this is my attempt to summarize to date what has gone on and build a Table of Contents so to speak out of a 'Build Spec' list. I will come back to this point periodically to update this section so that everyone can have one place to go to answer their questions hopefully.

    So as some of you know I recently bought one of NPG's turbo kits and I have now decided to install a 3L as well at the same time. This thread will serve as my build thread with pictures of the entire process from the tear down of the car and the teardown/build/install of the 3L and turbo kit. Here is the build plan and the starting pictures.

    2005 Ford Escape 3.0L Duratec, 43k miles, compression test of 207psi
    -parts to be ordered/installed (as of right now, investigating options with Scat, Wiseco, and ROSS)
    K1 rods
    Diamond Racing Pistons
    4.6L valves
    -parts on order
    waiting for my ST220 UIM to arrive from the UK and then it's being sent out for EH

    Also for those interested all of my original parts will be for sale (since there is nothing wrong with my current 2.5L) at some point in the classifieds. I will also post in here as parts become available.

    Been posting stuff on Facebook. Oil is in, engine has been turned over manually. Working on buttoning up the wiring. Basically preparing for first fire.

    The house is nearing completion. Won’t be long now and I can get back to working on this thing.

    Still shakn'.

    The lot I previously mentioned fell through. Thankfully we had contingencies on the purchase and got out of the deal free and clear. What a mess.

    Funny I should swing in here. Haven't been on in a long while mostly because I still fed up with this website in how slow and crappy it is. No one has bothered to fix the problems so Facebook pages are where it's at since those actually work. However I do like the layout of this website.

    However all that said the car is still a work in progress. I've been held up with working on my DD (Audi TTS), my new born son (3mo), and still looking for a lot to build our house. Having said that I think we finally found one. The layout had to change a little bit, but I still am getting a shop be it not as big as the one shown in the photo previously. I've attached it up below.

    Once this house is built I think you'll find my car projects will be completed within a year. So this 3.0L turbo project will finally come to an end.

    Bought a lot in Apple Valley, MN. On the second draft for the house. I will have a total of 9 stalls. Main garage will be for the daily drivers and the two story shop in back will have 6 stalls, but the rear three will be for metal working, tool storage, and then finally a paint/powder coat booth. Front stalls are for working. The outside wall will have a two post lift. Initial sketch is below. A few more months people.

    Yes, It's happening. Now the mission is to find a lot that works for the layout. I'm quite excited, as I will finally have a place to put all my equipment and be able to play with it. Bring on roll cages, exhaust systems, painting, machining, CNC plasma table cutting... the R&D abilities will be amazing. Reality is the house won't be finished until around April, but it'll be just in time for cars to come out.

    Yea perhaps. I'll let you know how the meeting with the builder goes. Trying to get something on the books for next week. We'll see if everything falls within my budget.
