Tore down the 5.2 this weekend and put on new water pump nad oil pump as well as ported and polished my heads and gave my intake a little dremel love... Cut large sections out of my intake.. I have no pictures of the port and polish work.. Or the intake grinding... But I have some pics of the engine torn apart and put back together...
dont have the torn down pics loaded yet.. But here is a picture of my motor now...

I will post the tear down pics...

I didnt do this for a write up so no pics of the tear down..
I did this because I had a bad water pump and my head gasket was leaking.. But while I had it apart why not do some work... Very Happy

Ill let you know how the port and polish turned out.. I am still waiting for a coolant return tube from the Jeep dealer...


The yellow lines on the right are for my OBA>. I am using the stock A/C Compressor and the valve covers and oil pan are painted chrysler Hemi orange.. The intake, heads and manifolds are painted high temp flat black...

What you think??

Carl

I dont think I have a before pic at all.. and Like i said this was a repair not a mod .. So I only took pics of it torn down... I will post those as soon as I can..

I just wasnt thinking about pics when I found out my water pump was bad.. Confused

But when I started tearing it down .. I felt like modding Very Happy

Pics are coming...

Thanks for the comment by the way... bling

carl




Oh yeah ... Look at that throttle body.. I bored the piss out of it....
I need to measure it as well... To see how much I bored it to... Smile

haha...not quite how I meant it...I'm an old muscle car guy (I still own one)...so I appreciate a nice, clean V8. I'll be curious to hear what kind of gains you got out of the bore and the port/polish.

Ill let you know as soon as I get the part to finish her up...

I am like a kid in a candy store myself.. I really opened up the intake and the intake and exhaust side of the head.. I cant wait to finish it up..

Funny thing is once I painted it I was yelling at everyone to be careful of my bling... I didnt want them to scuff my paint.. Mr. Green


She does look great doesnt she.. Wink
