New Motor

Since LN Engineering had a sale I bought a new motor to fix my low oil pressure problem. What parts need to be replaced when installing a new motor?

I think it comes with all new parts, are you looking for reliability mods, like for track?

Wow! Congrats! It's a long block isn't it? If it doesn't come with a water pump, get one of those. A new serpentine belt. A magnetic drain plug. A spin on oil filter adapter.

You didn't mention if your car is a tiptronic or a manual. If manual, get a new flywheel & clutch. Only other thing to consider is an underdrive pulley.

Of course, a new air filter and a new gas filter and new hoses as needed. New coils and plugs, too.

I love it!

As long as the engine is coming out, maybe you want to install a 987 air filter housing. Also check your motor mount and transmission mounts, CV joints and boots, AOS.

following this

I want to see how this turns out. Seems like a good deal for a completely rebuilt bullet proof engine
