2006 Pontiac solstice 2.4l Turbo Build

So, started this build about 2-3 months ago. Any questions let me know. I'll post all my pics and links to my youtube channel!

So i got an 06 solstice 2.4l like new with only 8200 miles.

Current mods:

Rpm Motorsports custom turbo kit

Garrett gt2871r billet wheel ball bearing turbo

600hp Rpm intercooler

#60 ZZP fuel injectors

Tial 50mm BOV

Hp mpvi2 bluetooth tuner

Waterpump rerouted pipe with water out port

Turbo gapped sparkplugs

Dragon Boost gauge

Catless downpipe

WERKSRacing Street/Race MLS Head Gasket

ARP head studs

Werksracing Valve springs #80lb

Titanium Spring retainers

6k leds

Ddm works Coil cover with PAW decal

Heat painted Valve cover

More coming slowly but keeping it low key and more of a sleeper look.

My mistake here was not turning the motor to TDC (top dead center) while taking my head off. It makes it easier to do the timing that way. Took valve cover off to get started on removing the head.

Chain tensioner, there are few different improved versions and the latest is this kind that comes out a bit from the middle.

Most of the parts arrived after 4 weeks from RPM. Shipping took much longer than expected. I'd get a package every Friday for a bit over a months time.

Head removed, pretty simple process. I am taking it off due to me putting the mls race headgasket. Plan is to be over 400whp

Reinstalling the cams, rockers and clamps. Using only Amsoil products in my build. Highly recommend the Amsoil engine assembly lube!
