Pretty much have the bottom end assembled and ready. Not a fan of the plastic oil pickup but I'll keep my fingers crossed.



If you do use ARP Main Studs you will need to machine out some of the baffling in the windage tray to clear the studs.



Getting there...

Put the Massive Speed Ported SVT Head on today. ARP Head Studs.. not visible.



Adjustable Cam Gears with VVT Delete



Cams with VVT delete being degreed. The VVT delete is 30 degrees retarded in the normal timing position so it must be adjusted.

What kind of clutch are you running? i'm also building a rally car out of my 245K mi 03 svt zx5 but i'm starting from the bottom and adding parts as iI compete more and more. i just got the eibach pro system plus suspension kit earlier last week to put on. i'm trying to see what clutch will be better to run. i'm planning on making 300-400whp sometime next year and hopefully have it ready before sno drift here in michigan.

Are you running the 6-speed or 5-speed transmission? I will be running the 5-Speed MTX-75 with a Clutch Master Twin Disc Clutch. This car is NA so it will not be putting down huge HP or TQ. In rally with a FWD car you tend to be more traction limited than HP limited. The Twin Disc Clutch in my case is being selected for the ability to rebuild it, and the ability to withstand launches and hard shifting.

MFactory 4.75 final drive would top this motor off and make the car a rocket! What intake are you planning on running?

I am not aware of anyone that manufacturers final drive(s) for the 6-speed Getrag. As to a clutch for one, there are not too many options for your HP/TQ goal. If the car is going to be a pure race/rally car then look into the Clutch Master FX500 4-Puck Clutch. If you're trying to keep it streetable then perhaps a Clutch Master FX350.
