Great read.

I don't really have any experience on the inside of the engine, so that's actually been pretty educational for me.

Good stuff, can tell that it hasn't just been thrown together!

Good read Smile

Something I've been curious about regarding the head studs - with the angle the XU sits at is there still sufficient clearance to remove the head in situ or does it become and engine out job?

There's no way you would get the head of in situ No

But you can wind the studs out [5mm allen key in top of stud] then lift the head off as normal.

Yeah, the Saenz rods have the reliefs on the sides Yes

As for the pistons, yes they have larger valve reliefs to allow more flexibility with cam timing Smile

How much would the labour be for a build like that?

How many hours does it take?

I was told before, that the windage is to allow the crank to have more easier flow than a 405 mi16 version of the 2tlr that has no winadge kit, which makes the crank get less flow due to it running through the thick oil etc.
I learn something new every day, very good write up.
It gives me the will to want to start stripping an engine, which i'v never tried before, too scared in case i damage the head if i dont set the pistons at the right postion like when doing a cam change etc. Smile

It depends on the spec of the build - i.e if you just want a bare engine, or if it needs to be fully assembled with all ancillaries etc. Also depends if I need to get the machine work done etc.

If you want a quote for a build your best off PM'ing me and i'll price it based on your requirements.

Well there is been an update on this.

My dad found out that i had a supercharger about a month ago. He was already not
happy i chuck all my spare cash at the car so after find out about the charger he was more annoyed.

Knowing he cant change what i do he decides to start taking an interest in the engine build.
Having read the thread Rich started yesterday, he wanted to know why i had bought the ebay rods instead of the saenz ones.
I told him they cost

Clapping

to be fair the chinese rods look very similar in finish and style to the wossner rods that i bought in error. I think i read on the seanz site that there rods are hand finished which might be why they have a less textured finish.


Edit :im talking shite. they are shot peened and polished thats all.
