2021 - Time for a new LN2 Build
Friday, March 05, 2021 4:56 PM
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.

Some pics...

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
7500RPM lifters
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
oil pan
rock arms
push rods

Maybe:
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.
