So here are some updates on the project:

I swapped the wheels for 17 ones:

The documents finally got ready on August, the same month that my radiador blew up. So I parked the car in my garage and started to disassemble the engine.

So here is what I have planned for now:
I took the head off to replace the original head gasket made of fiber to a made of metal, so it will handle better boost. I will also replace the original head screws for a set of forged studs.
Since I already took the head off, it is a lot easier to take the hole engine out without the head, so I will do it to disassemble the oil sump to see the general condition of the bearings and may replace them. I am looking for a set of ARP 209-6003 (it is beeing a little hard, I will probably have to import) to replace the original rod bolts and i will replace the crankshaft cap bolts for stock new ones as well.

The engine itself didn't have any problem and wasn't smoking or consuming too much oil, so no need to rebuild it. It looks like that it have already been rebuilt and instaled new liners. I don't know if installing new liners is something good or bad because I guess it's not suposed to have, but looks good at least. The pistons are stock size ones.

After getting it running again I will focus on make it looks a little bit better, and then install a Megasquirt MS2 and turbocharge it.

Mateus, my C30NE was reconditioned in 2009 and has covered 40,000 km. When we prepared the engine, I didn't worry about the wear of the parts, because I change the oil every 6 months, regardless of the mileage. However, I will soon be forced to replace the original head gasket with a steel one. There is a small water leak from the head gasket, which is wetting spark plug number 4. Recently it burned and we noticed it was damp and rusty. The engine is running normally, but I won't wait for the leak to increase. At the end of the year I have it fixed. I know Lavras and Perd§es, very good lands! We resume the Omega Club meetings here. I hope that one day you can participate with your 2.0T. Greetings.

The original panel speed sensor began to leak and was replaced after 28 years of use. I bought a new one and after 9 months it leaked transmission oil. I bought the third sensor, which also leaked oil in 3 months! Talking to a friend, president of the Clube do Omega MG and specialist in the exchange of analog panels by installing digital panels in the Omegas of our club members, I was informed that the cause of these leaks is the small rubber ring in the photo below. Problem solved.  :y

Welcome Mateus! Congratulations on your purchase of ABSOLUTO and good luck with the restoration. My 3000 has been with me for 17 years. In Brazil I am the oldest member of the Clube do Omega MG, participating since the first meeting of the club on April 7, 2007. I read that you are interested in installing a turbo kit in the future. After buying the parts for about 2 years, I looked for a reliable preparer and for 2 and a half years, my engine runs with 1 bar of turbo pressure. For your car, the purchase of parts will be easier and cheaper, because you can easily find ready-made kits for the C20 engine. In my project, there are no ready-to-sale kits in Brazil for the C30NE engine, which made the process more expensive, but the result made up for it in the end.  :y

You will need to block that cone off from the heat of the engine bay with a heat shield and get a cold air feed to it or you will lose power as the original setup is not all that bad👍

Hello everyone!
I stopped following the forum, because 3 months ago my wife and I bought another car (pocket rocket 2006 FIAT Palio 1.8R). Its restoration, after years of neglect by the former owners, is taking up a lot of my time and money. However, I didn't forget my Omega. After searching the internet without success, with the help of a friend who owns a garage near my house, we designed a heat shield for the K&N air filter, so the HX35 turbine only sucks in cold air.

Inspiring photos for me. My wish is to move soon to a house with lots of space and buy the other versions of Omega that I don't have: Estate and saloons B and C. The garage will be beautiful, but my wife won't like it. ;D ;D ;D
