Many of you know about the IS F we took on that was built by another company in Texas. Well after all winter waiting for parts we are finally at the point where the motor can come together! All of these parts are available at www.Elite-Autosport.com/store

Here are some pics of the motor going together!

thats a nice build! wanted to ask:

1- did you port/polished the head?
2- new stock head gasket or went with aftermarket? if so which brand?
3- am sure you honed the block before installing the pistons, but just wondering if you decked the block or even surfaced the head for perfection?

No port or polish, it shouldn't be needed
Factory Head gasket was used, they are MLS gaskets like the Supra.
Yes we honed the block, but there was no need to deck either the block or head because they were WELL within spec.
