Hey guys, so I picked up an '01 Cavalier motor for $150 delivered to my house. It's in great shape. Going to tear her down and do a performance build.
I know there are tons of threads to get advice on building the engine, but my main problem is trying to source parts. If anyone has a line on parts or some laying around they'd like to sell, I sure would appreciate it.
So far I've got some Eagle rods that I bought unused from a guy on S10forum. This engine will be going into a 1995 S10 with a T5 transmission, using Megasquirt3 for engine management. I plan on going all out with that, 60-2 crank trigger, coil on plug, drive by wire (with Ecotech TB), even VVT if I can figure out how to adapt the cam phaser and sensor onto the 2.2L cam gear and timing cover.
Any update on this build?
Still gathering parts. I should have my stage 3 cam soon. Need to contact Wiseco to see if I can still get the flat top pistons from them.
My block is at the machine shop currently.
ARP head studs
ARP main studs
Eagle H beam rods
Wiseco flat top pistons
Melling M98 oil pump
Web Cam stage 3 camshaft
aluminum lifter retainers
1mm o/s intake valves
Titanium valve retainers
New GM valve cover
New GM timing cover
Need to get:
1mm o/s exhaust valves
titanium valve locks
Cometic head gasket
ARP fasteners for almost everything
Bronze valve guides
Plan on going to a sealed cooling system, going to try to shoehorn a Cobalt radiator into the support, run the heater lines to a surge tank instead of a heater core. HVAC is being pulled.
This is totally random, but curious what all youve got from the old 2.2 turbo build? As long as pricing isnt crazy I want the valve cover, would like to pick up another turbo header also as the one we have now got modified somewhere before we got it.
Let me know, search 2.2 turbo Beretta on youtube and you'll find the car. Totally not affiliated with the original poster, just got lucky seeing this.
Thanks for your time,

No turbo here. Still working on getting parts, lol. I finally got valve springs good for 8k+ RPM, along with locators. Using 94-97 viton valve stem seals.
Trying to get 11:1 compression out of it. Hopefully that and the cam will get me close to 200hp at the flywheel.
