Well over the past couple weekends I finished swapping in my black interior finally (I dyed a lot if my maroon and reused it. But now have pieces from 5 different cars making up my interior ha). So now I will begin my engine tare down and rebuild and also repaint my engine bay.. Going to be nice to have a clean car with a built block next spring

And here's my valve cover powdercoated red and chrome. Each color done separately to avoid mixing.. So much time and effort in this but it turned out nice!
Masked off the stripes and baked on the chrome
And after the red stripes
And here's all the other parts
Thanks for looking!

I'll start off with the engine and let the pics to most of the talking.
About the build,
Standard bore (fresh hone)
Balanced crank and rods
Crank turned 10/10
Sealed power bearings
Arp rod and head studs
New M28 non jet valve head
Shneider HD valve springs
Ajusa head gasket
New oil pump
BSE and new timing components
New water pump
This was my first complete rebuild and it went very smooth with the great parts and help with questions from Randy (DAD) and the help assembling the bottom end from my future father-in-law (machinist of 25 years).

Got everything put back in and had it running within about two weeks.. wasn't in a hurry and did a lot of other little things along the way like porting the manifold and turbine housing, wired in a battery cut off switch, modified my Funk Lock to not hit starter, tucked wiring, built my own braided power steering and oil cooler and fuel lines, built an aluminum shifter bushing for my MK1 short shifter, etc
heres the first start up video,

My daily/farm truck love the tacoma almost as much as the quest
I took the mirrors and grille off this car and put it on my good car and I REALLY like the black accents with my black center/polished lip rims on the silver car. When I get around to it i will do the same to the SHPS but powder coat them instead of paint.
