After all the preparation of balancing, checking clearances, and painting, it’s now time to assemble my engine. In fact, this is the only part of engine assembly we were able to get on camera. Because everything else took so long, we were not able to recored the cylinder head and the rest of the assembly.

Still, there’s a ton of useful information in this video about bottom end assembly and the types of things you want to consider with a boosted application. As you’ll see in the video, you build an engine for boost very differently than you build a naturally aspirated engine.

No matter what, you’ll walk away with great information form this video and a deeper appreciation for my machine shop, Kalviantor Engines.
