Wow what an evolution. 26 pages going on 2 years here. I hope in a year and a half I have as much to show for my passion as well. Mad respect for you man. I've always admired mini's but your truck takes the cake. Amazing.

I have a vision for my 4WD Gen 3 and when I saw your truck I saw a lot of what I wanted... just about a foot closer to the ground. lol

Thanks for posting pics, taking the time to share this, and for giving me some inspiration. I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Thank you Joey.

Well, in all of this time, I've yet to do any major engine work. I've done exhaust, K&N, and regular engine maintenance, but now, the time has come.

I've noticed upon cold starts, my engine, from somewhere, is making a scraping/rattling noise that goes away inside of 3 seconds. It will only do it in the early mornings after it's been very cold at night. So, I'm thinking that the old 2.3 is gonna kick the bucket.

Saying this, I plan on using the block to start my 2.3T build. At this stage in my life, I cannot justify swapping in a 5.0. Maybe someday. But for now, if I do have to rebuild my engine, it's getting turbo pistons, heavy duty valve springs, and the works to make it turbo ready. So when I finally get all the parts together, I can swap in the turbo and be ready to drive in as short amount of time as possible.

I definitely need to do more research on 2.3T's, but I feel like I can do it.

2.3 Turbo here I come!
