those pistons look so nice and shiny they look like they belong on a wall let alone in an engine.

Status?

What thickness was skimmed off the heads? How much more compression do you gain from this? Any changes to valve clearances?

Cheers,
Fred

Pistons look sick! Agree with above. Spend some more coin and close deck that block man. Sleeves will walk.

I asked the guy at Harris engines which do all the work for race torque, and because these decks are already semi closed there is no need, he told me that he hasn't ever had a problem with fitting these sleeves in these blocks??

So after a wonderful phone call from MTQ in malaga that were checking my turbo ou for me, they reckon its going to cost 1499$ to fix, apparently a seal is fucked and its leaking oil,...... since when is it so fucking expensive to fix a fucking turbo.... i basically told them to take it and put it up there ass

So my next item to buy is a new Turbo, i did quite likt that gt35r But on the agender now is

GTX3071R / GTX3076R dont really see the big difference OR

GTX3576R / GTX3582R Again difference, i dont have time to research shit like this

Please someone just tell me

im more leaning towards the GTX30 for faster spool

Opinions?
