Stage 2 Turbo Project - Ross Racing Pistons & Crower Rods

Update (30/05/11): This set of pistons has been replaced with a custom set from Ross Racing as well with revised compression ratio and coated pistons crown.

If you are wondering why would I have another set of pistons and rods with me here, it is because we're actually building up two engines at the moment.

Engine one will be running CP forged pistons and Crower rods with custom regrind cams.

Engine two will be running Ross Racing pistons and Crower rods, together with the JUN 272 camshafts and Golden Eagle sleeves.

The major difference between the pistons from CP and the new Ross pistons is that they are custom made to 77mm with gas ports so that the rings will stay sealed when we rev the mutha f**ker over 8,000 RPM.

And with the new pistons we're also bringing up the engine displacement to 1.6 litre as well.

The items arrived today along with a whole bunch of others goodies while I was hanging around so here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

There are some rods from Oliver as well


The humor side of Ross Racing


Deep dish design


We did not teflon coat the piston skirts this round though


Notice those gas ports up there?


There is a reason why we stood with Crower rods


The individual packaging of the rods


You know their shot peening process is of quality when the surface looks like this

The ROSS pistons look lovely. The lower ringlands should also result in a much stronger piston but @ the expense of emissions :) How about other coating technologies from the likes of Swain or DLC? Bet the Crower rods make the stockies look like matchsticks :)

well gt auto told me this round for the Ross pistons we're gonna just fit them in without any coatings to the side skirts.....don't know what they're up to....

and yeah man, the crower rods are so damn beefy...makes the stock rods looked like they have anorexia or something LOL~~~~

ccs,

nice pics and parts!

hmmnn, since you have two engines now, why dont you build a twin engined vios? they do a lot in the UK and US i mean twin engined cars, google up on twin engined mk1 golf gti, mini, caterhams and others too. The added benefit is you also get AWD! :)
