Hello everybody.
In today's video, I bring you the leak test I did on the VVT that I'm preparing to mount the turbo.
I also explain the difference between the leak test and the compression test.
I hope you like it and that it is useful to you.
See you soon.

In today's video, I continue to work on my 1.8VVT engine to prepare it for the turbo.
In this video, I show how I removed the cylinder head and inspected the upper part of the block.
I hope you like it and it's useful to you.

Hi.
Today I clean a lot of stuff in the ultrasonic cleaner, gapped and installed the piston rings, drilled the oil pan, manufactured and welded the accessory for the turbo oil return line, and more.
Hope you guys like this.
We are really close to starting the engine assembly.

Hi. New video at the VVTurbo build series.
Today I did the final assembly of the engine in the stand.
The list includes:
Intake manifold, throttle body, exhaust manifold, engine mounts, water pump inlet flange, crank pulley, water pump pulley, alternator, turbo oil line, knock sensor spark plugs, coils, and more.
I hope it can help you.
We are really close to having it back in the car. 🤞
