1995 SC 5-spd - Dissassembled


SCCoA Member

Putting out a feeler for this. I have a 1995 5-spd, that I have planned to restore pretty much ground up. Started 10 years or so on this, stopped and re-started several times, but family life hast taken priority and for the last 5 years or so I have barely touched it. I don't see a path for me to getting back to it for the next 10 or so, and I don't want to have it just sit there. I've collected a ton of parts, front and rear sub frame off suspension rebuild complete (pretty much all the parts, mark8 arms, etc, all new solid bushings, sway bars, etc.). Additionally a Dave D. rebuilt engine on a stand (details below).
Below is a list of items i put on spreadsheet several years ago. I believe there's many, many more. Sunk costs in the parts, engine, etc. is probably around 15k total, and that's 5-10 years ago. I'll try to get some photos to post so you have an idea of where the car is at at this point (suspension on frame now, all body panels off, complete drive train off).

Engine Details:
- Wiseco Pro True forged piston set with moly rings and chrome moly pins
- Complete engine bearing set including cam bearings, rod bearings, and main bearings in std. or undersize.
- Timing chain and tensioner set
- Complete Felpro gasket set. Includes MLS head gaskets.
- ARP Head Studs
- ARP Main Cap Stud Kit (modified to fit SC motor) 120.00T
- Comp Cams custom ground billet 3.8L SC camshaft 345.00T
- Stage I ported heads. Includes bronze guides, oversize valves, oversize seats, springs, hardware, and stage I porting
- Port match stock SC intake manifold 150.00T
- Scorpion Roller rockers 250.00T
- Chrome Moly 5/16" .080" wall pushrods. Custom length 85.00T
- Hi Vol Mellings oil pump 95.00T
- BHJ Harmonic balancer 370.00T
- Degrease and hot tank block, remove rust buildup, wire brush clean all oil galleys, deburr all edges including main caps, remove casting flash, check housings, zero deck block on BHJ fixture to RA 20 minimum surface for MLS gaskets, bore to recommended oversize and hone with torque plate to a plateau finish. Line hone
main bearing journals. Final hot tank and wash block to remove all traces of oil and chips. Paint block and install frost plugs, galley plugs, and cam bearings.
-Grind/polish/blueprint crankshaft
-Assemble entire engine, fitting all components, verifying all bearing clearances, setting up valve train, cam degree, pre-lube motor and verify oil pressure.
