is there a actuall way to tested the car for your compression? cause I know if u put 9:0:1 it should just htat, but not if u have a shaved head? so how do u find it out?
You need to CC the head and then add that volume to the cylinder volume at TDC (including headgasket). You then divide the the total cylinder volume (including HG and head CC) by the cylinder volume at TDC. This is the only way to truely know your compression. You also need to add the CC of the piston dish (the wiseco's are 22 cc's) to the volumes. You should end up in the 8.8-9.0 range.

My pistons were slightly out of the hole, so I took that into consideration as well.

My 2.4 came back today from machine shop partially assembled.I had them install the crower rods, acl coated bearings,wiseco pistons and they put on the cometic hp with arp head studs
and the installed the manley stainless standard valves,new high perf bronze guides and valve seals and crower springs and titanium retainers,manley valve keepers.
My crank was minty and polished up only. Standard bearings were fine.
I set the wisecos to .0035 piston to wall ,top ring at .019 second .023.
Hitting it as you can see in my sig with an FP3065. And maybe under 100 shots later on of direct port nitrous.It
will be getting normal type street 500 mile breakin not track break in.I also put thin copper spray on the cometic.
I know they say dry but they also said that a bit of copper spray was ok.My block and head were decked and very smooth but no idea of the RA. Cometic suggested a fingernail test and it passed that so should be ok I hope.
I know have to of course assemble the rest of the stuff on it and it will be a week or so till everything shows up.
But at least the motor is home and things are happening.

I have more questions..last minute ones..
Someone said if use a 6 bolt 2.0 pan you need to clearance a bit near shallow end or rods bolts will hit it on my G4CS.True or not true..some said they did and some say they didn't.
I have air on my 97 .So should I just use the lower manifold bolt hole for the knock sensor since not using a manifold bracket since using JMFAB SMIM.
Also someone said they used a 91 timing wheel and it messed up the engine and they had to use 93 to 94 wheel or timing marks or something like that..so can I use the 91 wheel or not?

Oil squirters help a lot on a street driven turbocharged car. You should double check about the hole for the knock sensor, because even the NT 4G63 block doesn't have that hole. I don't see why they would make one for the 4G64. Also, the equal length half-shafts really don't help as much as some people say it does. But if you got some laying around you might as well put them in.

this is old but it made me laugh, greg collier uses half shafts

Important last minute questions..

Ok just about done my 2.4 assembly.
Should I use the 2.4 pickup or the 2.0 oil pickup screen. If I use the 2.0 I have to cut off the arm it looks like. Not a big deal but the 2.4 has no arm but is a different length think its shorter than the 2.0 pickup tube.

Secondly I have taken out the balance shafts and of course turned the bearings but the 2.4 has no oil squirters installed.
Should I port the oil pump relief hole to keep my oil pressure down.

I tried to use the 2.4 pick up tube and the oil pan didnt fit right. I ended up using the 2.0 tube.
I found that you can use either pan, or either tube, BUT you must use them from the same engine e.g. 2.0 pan with 2.0 pickup tube and 2.4 with 2.4. Also keep in mind that slight changes in the oil pan will change the height of oil on the dipstick so you may want to make sure it has the same dipstick and holder that come's out of the block.

All yall are talking about putting the 4g64 into turbo DSMs. Would it work to put the 4g64 into a RS Eclipse? I really want to put the 4g64:bore it out: in with 1g head:port it out:, and a garret turbo set up. will any of that work together?
