Skip forward to the end of last year and with the car being near done the engine became priority.
The sump is kind of odd, has a large aluminium main section with a steel bottom plate, looks like it's been a bit leaky..

Bores were in great shape, hardly a mark on them and no lip you could feel

The water jacket at the rear had quite a build up of sediment behind the blanking plate, not ideal!

The crank was checked out and declared fit so once cleaned down and any potentially dubious core plugs removed it was time to hone the bores

The bores were checked using new piston rings for end gap which were within tolerance so with the pistons cleaned they all went back in

I decided against painting the block as I like the original look with it's stencilling plus it's effort that is pretty much hidden anyway, and as I've said before it's not a show car merely going to be a good one I don't mind using.

Crankshaft went back in with new big end shells, main bearing shells and thrust washers.
Plastigauge was used to check for bearing clearance so everything was checked to be within spec.

The cylinder head got stripped down and skimmed, valves lapped in and all built back up.

With the engine block moved up to the unit as I wouldn't be able to move the engine complete from my shed at home, it went on the engine stand for the head to be refitted..

After a lot of thought I decided to go for a refurbishment of the standard turbo rather than a hybrid upgrade, mainly as it will be a useable car rather than looking for big power. Plus I don't plan on modifying a load of stuff to make use of extra boost!
The turbo and manifold I left off until the engine goes back in

Back down off the engine stand so the flywheel and new clutch could go on
