Forged rods and pistons before the pistons were coated


---------- Post added 11-03-14 at 13:14 ----------

They sit at 8.2 to 1 comp ratio

Garrett Gt35 I got of MORGZ. Top bloke. Next to a t3, plan to run it low mount.


---------- Post added 11-03-14 at 13:29 ----------

Engine has been built as follows.
Block bored and honed, cleaned as usual, oil drains drilled out, Sourced new crank, installed new grub screws in crank, forged rods, forged pistons (coated), custom cam, 40 thou over, oringed block, heavy head port, head welded for strength down the middle, rebuilt turbo oil pump, high volume sump, block drilled and tapped for oversize head studs.

That's all I can remember at the moment haha.

The engine is an original a8 turbo block too. Plan to do some body work on her as the rust is out of control!

Also I'm collecting gauges for a custom dash

Wow, forgot about this haha.
The car is currently getting all the rust cut out.
I've converted the front brake to turbo, still have to stick the turbo disc diff in and have a 1"master and turbo booster to stick in.
Also stuck a turbo auto in it but the guy who sold it to me ripped me off it was supposed to be shift kitted and in really good nick with a 2800 stall.
Got it, stuck it in, and it wouldn't move. Pulled the pan off and check the band, which was pretty much non Existed.
Anyway, trying to get it ready to cruise up to lakes entrance for New Years.

Goddammit!! It double posted for some reason!

Also has turbo injectors now, as well as turbo ecu. Started rigging up the surge tank in the boot as well. The 044 is starving being just inline after the standard intank.
Intercooler piping is all cleaned up and airbox rigged in.
Started putting in my cobolt gauges too.

Can anyone give me some insight into the rare spare rear window panels? My one is rusted to all hell and is getting cut out as we speak.
Are they easy to fit?
The guy I'm getting to do it hasn't used a rare spares one before so was just wondering.
Cheers,
Nick
