Default VPRPWRD 2004 Build

This is the silver 04 I bought in New Jersey, which also resulted in my favorite picture of my truck to date:



The truck had 92k miles on it and had dropped a valve seat on the right side cylinder head causing damage to the head, block and pistons in 2 of the right side cylinders. Engine was removed and disassembled in about 6 hours.

It was easier to remove the transmission first, and since I have done it so many times, it was on the floor in under an hour:

































That same day I drove to Long Island after finding out a member of the VTCoA had some 04 blocks he was looking to sell. The rumor was true, so I bought 2 brand new blocks the same day, just in case my block couldn't be saved.





I checked with all of the usual rebuilders (Arrow, Exotic Engine, Viper Specialty Performance) and ended up going with a local guy who does some fantastic Viper work, Ray Barton.

This is a glimpse inside his shop:







One of these blocks is not like the others, it has 2 more cylinders!



The machine work on the block is done. We were able to save the old block by replacing the damaged sleeve with a new one and honing the remaining cylinders. It will be receiving diamond forged pistons with total seal rings as well as Molnar forged H beam rods. I will post updated pictures when engine reassembly starts.

N/A

This truck will be sold as soon as it's done and give a new owner the opportunity to customize as he/she sees fit.
