Stage 2 Turbo Project - Preparation

We're currently preparing the groundwork for the engine rebuild, the engine block is now mounted on the stand awaiting us to start work.

The Golden Eagle sleeves has been honed, and you might also notice that the pistons are not the same set of Ross Racing pistons that I posted up earlier.

They are now replaced with a custom set from Ross Racing as well with revised compression ratio, and coated piston crowns.

Ready to rock and roll

Hi bro,
what kind of head bolt have you used?

Chew Soon said...

hi giupo,

for running in the engine i am currently using stock bolts, however they are fresh though.

my tuner recently got ARP to produce the head bolts, and it will take at least 8-10 weeks before they are ready to be sent over to us.

do you want a set? if yes i could get them so ship over to you.

The ARP head bolts have the same diameter and thread of the stock bolts? M9x1.5 These are plug&play?
