So here's the rundown.
I was planning on doing a motor swap here in a few months. I had the motor bored 20 over, picked up new pistons, port and polished the head, and got a valve job. This has been sitting in my garage for a couple of months while I have been hoarding parts.
I was driving home one day and the car just dies as im driving 50 mph. I had it towed home and I checked it out. I wasn't getting any spark due to a bad wire somewhere. Had it towed to the shop, because it was a huge headache that I was tired of dealing with. The shop found the bad connection and fixed it. They also told me that my timing belt slipped. To make a long story short, they did the worst timing belt job ever for a f2t because they sent me home with it 3 teeth off. I fixxed the timing belt and now my valves are bent
So It looks like it's time to swap
I have a few questions before I do the swap though.
1. I have heard a lot of different ways of doing it. I plan on leting the car run for 5 minutes, turn off. Then change the oil and run it for 30 min. then change the oil at 500 miles. Is this a good way to break in a F2T?
2. I was wondering if anyone on here has an ACT clutch? I picked up a good clutch from them (XT-SS) and was wondering how I should break it in. I figured with the combo of freshly rebuilt motor and a new clutch I should baby it for 500 miles (no boost). Due to the fact that I have a 16G turbo on it, I dont want to hit boost and have the clutch slip. I also want to try to break it in so that it wont chatter.
3. Can you re-use F2T head bolts? I plan on getting ARP head studs but money is tight and I need to get my car running. I figured I could re_use them during the break in period, and then put the APR studs in.
