Now that I am once again gainfully employed I can being actually peicing together the new engine (and turbo kit) I plan to put in my car. I have never attempted to assemble an engine before (I have compeltely torn down a z6 head). My question is, would it be a good idea for me to attempt to get it together myself, or would it be smarter to just have a machine shop do it for me?

well, how confident are you? We did it ourselves but all we did was take the block and have it bored and then we checked the specs on the bearings.so far no issues.

Well I'm not sure if I have all the tools I need. What, beyond basic hand tools, is needed? I'm pretty sure I could figure it out, but I'd like to be sure that it goes together properly. Or maybe find someone in the Eugene area who has done it before to help me out when I get everything together.

Download the Helms manual for the Z6 and read it. That'll have most of everything you'll need to know.
