Re: Future Build Components

I don't have a 7-rib block which is spare. Currently have it in my MR2 which I will not be using. Need a back up car which is the MR2 to my Peugeot.

Re: Future Build Components

Oh yeah I am not being ungrateful, I fully appreciate the advice given and I am not ignoring what you are saying. Just trying to work out what's for the best is all. What is the difference in weights between the two blocks? I didn't mean bore the rod end out, I meant bore the piston out to suit the ...

Re: Future Build Components

I need to weigh up if the smaller rods, smaller crank and 18mm pin pistons are a better alternative to spending money on bigger 20mm pin pistons and using the 42mm crank. I can get stock 42mm rods easily for £50 from a reliable source so that's not an issue. Is there anyway I could have the 18mm pin...

Re: 40mm crank, pistons, rods

Sorry can this advert be deleted until I decide what to do with these.

These pistons should have featured in the MR2 originally me thinks instead of the low comp pistons!

Re: Future Build Components

It seems that I have 10.1:1 bigport pistons which I originally thought to be 9.4:1 so that changes my idea completely.

Almost negates the need of expense on new pistons

They are out of a 85' corolla so surely they are 9.4:1?

Re: Future Build Components

That's why I was curious what your duties would be. £520 comes out to about $750 USD. Buying my pistons for $480 would leave $270 for duties. I sell the CP pistons for about $600. This company has to be paying duties on them so it seems like duties can't be that much. Any way you cut it $500 piston...

Re: Future Build Components

I've found a very good website in the UK that sells CP pistons.

Looking at 12.0:1 CP pistons for £520 which is cheaper than what I can import them for...

That coupled with a 1mm head gasket will bring me down to 11.75:1 ish which is a good CR for my current cams or the poncams I'm also looking at.

Re: Future Build Components

My free engine has had it's block completely stripped already. My 42mm crankshaft has been measured and it's absolutely all spot on. The left overs of the block, i.e. pistons, rods and crank are all spot on in terms of condition and tolerance. I am not using those conrods so they are being sold with...

40mm crank, pistons, rods

I have recently acquired a corolla block and head. The head is not for sale but the crankshaft, pistons and conrods are all for sale. I would prefer these go together. They were removed from a car that had done 85k miles and they are all in excellent condition. I will post up pictures later on when ...

Re: Future Build Components

How is it possible to raise the RPM limit on the standard ECU? Mine cuts fuel or ignition off at 7.6k

I've never had to buy conrods before, are they worth it?

Re: Future Build Components

So I've got my free engine now. It's not got inlet or exhaust manifolds, but that's not an issue. It's a 3-rib, 40mm crank that's done 85k miles so that's very low compared to engines on eBay etc. I also now have the mk1b crank which is in great condition! But i'm faced with having to buy conrods as...
