Default Re: Danski6MT's Elite Radiant Ember Max Revival

After the tow home and diagnosis of the engine it was discovered that both pre-cats were broken up and a lot of it sucked back into the engine via egr/valve overlap..... lots and lots of blow-by and there was silver flake everywhere.....

and so with that happening, I was left with the option of rebuilding from bottom up and cleaning all the catalytic material out the tired motor, re-ring the bottom end and put new timing components and heads....I opted for option "B" as the damage was too extensive.

This called for a heart transplant. '04 motor out '07 motor in with just over 5800km on the motor Im unsure if it made the first warranty oil service to the dealer and crashed on the way out or perhaps it never made it. The replacement motor was very expensive, but its was clean, cylinder bore crosshatch patterns were as good as new, as if the bores were honed yesterday, and compression was all goooooood.

Look carefully and you can spot the markings where to my suprise this was a 2002 build motor, technically, Nissan was using all leftover stock out of the 5.5 gen's in early '04 production numbers...
