And those little breather ports that used to be for the injectors on the intake, now they will serve as vacume/boost ports. I used 2 5/8 quick connected air line fittings. Just need Plastic air line From Work.

Well I didn't get the engine to the machine shop till after thanksgiving, the day after to be exact. And here it is the 7, and I have yet to get the engine back. They told me they would get right on it when I dropped it of because they were not busy at all. So here it is, I have all my other parts here I need to assemble it, and I can't. I even have the ARP head stud, and it took ARP 2 weeks to get those here.

$650 Total. This does not include parts. And also. Since i did not read close enough and my math being a tad off, i had to turn back around and spend more money in machine work. Since the machinist was sympathetic, he only charged me $100 more on top of what i spent. I screwed up and bought & used the wrong rods. You can NOT use the FE-SOHC turbo rods with a 1.25 CH piston. You have to use the Factory FE3 rod. So i spent money on rods i did not need and machine work, like .086 out of the hole. Live and learn. And also found out the bearings for the FE3 rods are not the same as F2. The tabs on the bearings for the Fe3 are further outward than the F2/FE single cam. And guess what, not a single auto parts store has a listing for the Kia FE3 rod bearings. DEALER ONLY. And i even tried having them check for the G6 rod bearing as the FE3 uses the same bearing. Same thing. Kia wanted $97 for just the rod bearings and had to order them. I just grabbed the Clevit part number and bought them off ebay for $28.
So i ended up spending $750 total for : Block decked 5 thousanths, Bored to 87.5mm, Fe3 rod ends narrowed so they would fit the VG30DETT SRS Probe Pistons, Machine F2 crank .010 and micropolish and balancing, and check all clearances. So hopefully I'll be good.

MegaSquirt and 93 Pump Gas with low boost for now. VP 110 later if i i decide to crank up on the boost. My Injectors are no where near big enough to run E85 at this point.
