UFB or 4DoorGL,
Can you please post a list of the tools we'll need to install the turbo kit. I have a pretty good set now, but its the specialty ones (snap ring pliers, head-bolt tool, TIG welder) that I'm worried about.

Thanks,
AC

If you're doing the kit that comes with pistons and a clutch, you'll need at LEAST the following:

Torque wrench accurate to 85lb/ft
Clutch alignment tool
A full socket set
An appropriate ring compressor

A hydraulic press to remove the stock piston pin from the stock rod (we used a 100-ton freestanding hydraulic press)

You'll also need to build a "degreed wrench" (I dunno WTF it would actually be called) because you have to measure 65 degrees of wrench rotation when tightening the head bolts.

You will ALSO need the following brand new OEM Hyundai parts:

All 10 cylinder head bolts (they cannot be reused)
All 8 new rod bearings
A new throwout bearing IF there isn't one with the clutch (there probably is...)

You should also have the flywheel surfaced before installing the new clutch if you've done any racing in the past. My stock clutch was still having no problem sticking, but I did have some heat damage to the mating surface of the flywheel that needed to be machined a bit.

If you've never torn down an engine, you really should have it professionally installed. There are multiple critical points of failure in an engine where someon could make a very simple beginner-mistake and royally screw yourself.

OOps, one more thing...

You'll need a 10mm and a 12mm allen socket to remove the head bolts with. At least I think they're 10mm and 12mm, it may instead be 8mm and 10mm... Aw crap, i cannot remember, but I DO KNOW the head bolts require an allen socket to be removed and there are two different sizes of head bolts.

bah you can use Red's tools but half of those I haven't used before in my life.

a nice hammer and about 2 rolls of duck tape should do the job nicely.

Red is correct - but the welding you should not do yourself, rather take your sump to a shop to get done - it is a very small channel that needs to be welded on and the shop will not even charge you as it will take about 30 seconds flat to weld on.

Regardng the con-rod and pins - Hyundai used the most stupid design with this setup.... anyhow most engineering shops will have access to presses - and once the gudgeon pins are out the rods - you will not have to press them back in, because we supply you with new floating gudgeon pins (as this engine should have been designed to use in the first place.

Red - the keys needed to remove the head bolts are an 8mm and a 10mm - there are only 2 10mm head bolts which are situated at the back of the engine (on the coil side of the head)

Regarding the flywheel - if this has no high spots and is not damaged, you wil NOT need to re-surface it. What you simply need to do is take a 380 grade of sandpaper and sand down the flywheel surface. Once again all the procedures are included in the instructions.

Red has a point about previous experience with engines, but I will say that the instructions included point out all the potential problem areas and we warn you against doing incorrect procedures with the entire assembly process.

Other tools that you will definitely need are:-

Pliers, Side cutters, Insulation tape, Soldering Iron, Solder (Resin not Acid based - the common wire used to solder electronic circuit boards) Wire strippers, crimping tool to crimp a few lugs and spades. (electronic connectors)

It is not a necessity for yuo to have these next few tools, but if you do - you will certainly learn alot about your engine and will be able to measure your bore, pistons, and rings etc :-

Vernier
Bore guage
Height guage

Well thats about it, I think I have covered most of the tools required including Red's contribution - thank Red.

Thanks guys. I have most of those covered, especially the electronics (my other hobby is electronics / speaker building).

The ring compressor and clutch alignment tools are all I think I need. Luckily a friend of mine is a body guy for a Lexus shop and is a genius with a TIG welder. And he works cheap (beer :) )

Thanks again,
ac

Red for the degreed wrench you can use one of snap ons torque angle gauges it has and input for the torque wrench and a half inch adaptor for your alan socket it has a hold down built in so you can zero out the meter then turn your degrees it makes it real easy since you need to do every bolt twice its quick and accurate

Bah on stupid stock head bolts anyway. Torque-to-yield bolts are crap, I'm throwing mine away for a set of ARP studs. None of that BS two 65 degree turns, just ratchet them down to 75lbs and you're set.

And you can reuse them almost indefinately.

Cheuk mentioned that the cars making 400+ wheel horsepower in Korea usually go through a set of head bolts sometimes as soon as THREE runs... What happens is the stock head bolts stretch under the stress of all the power and it suddenly appears you've blown your head gasket.

Removing "massively stretched" bolts is a nasty ordeal, I'm not going to even think about going there.

Red, I have a question for you along the lines of tools.

What kind of stand do you recommend for building a motor? I have two engine sitting in boxes in my garage right now and I need a stand to start buiding.

The problem is, I've been looking around and all the stands are 1000lbs maximum or more, but the Accent and Tib motors I have don't even weight that much combined!

Any suggestions?

BTW, how much do ARP studs run? You said they have the specs on our engines too, right?

Somemore good news for you all -

We will be turning some clutch locating tools on the lathe and will be including them in the kits for no extra charge.

One less tool to purchase/borrow.

The engine stand really doesn't matter much. I found one at Harbor Freight for $50 plus tax, but to be honest the one that I have currently came from the Hyundai shop :D

Don't ask, you don't understand how cool my dealership is<img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>

Red, I know how it is.

My engine gives me free engines now, hence the need for the engine stands <img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>.

Your engines give you free engines? So you get two of the 2.0L's together and they make a cute little baby 1.6L beta? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I knew what you were trying to say, just a bit of a typo there hehehe<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
