Well tonight saw the start of a forced hybrid engine Swap.
Unfortunately at the weekend my engine decided to shit itself and start with that dreaded knocking noise.
The swap will involve the old block from j555hks's version8 sti lump using the wagons standard heads.
I had thought about possibly using the avcs heads but the extra cost and work involved made it a non starter.
After the very successful 2.5 block swap andyg has just carried out, he has taken the lead in helping me do the same with this lump.
Hopefully with a bit of luck the wagon should be back up and running by sat and I will be hopefully getting Andrew Carr to check it over and fine tune the brain!
Here are just few pics.

Should get the engine out tomorrow night after work and get the heads off both engines and transfer any other bits and bobs that need swapping over.
