Re: F20b swap! After f23 blew up 😭

I like how I posted this and everyone thinks Iím gonna spin a bearing... does anyone know how to check clearances?? Iím sure Iíll blow a compression ring first but thatís what my water meth kit is gonna help reduce the chance off lol... thanks to the people that said good luck and cool swap.

Update:
New poly mounts installed 95a ( shakes a lot!!! )
New Hondata 4 bar arrived
Boost pipes hooked up
Gonna be timing it tomorrow after I figure out vtec issue.. donít feel vtec engaging.. whatís vtec for the f20B??

I never said anything about thinking you are gonna spin a bearing just how did it happen?

Hope the build goes well. I have hit the limiter in my 5.7 tundra while shifting manually. It was a little before the 6k redline. Made me sad I couldn't touch that line.

On my previous setup I didn’t spin a rod bearing, the piston actually cracked. I’m assuming a ringland broke
