also pretty cheap too, shame the exchange rate is bad otherwise they would be a bloody bargain!
Canada $ 1.71 to 1
Better exchange rate to 30 Dizzy Blank & 45 Crank sensor bracket
This thread is sexual....
How did you order parts from eurospeed? When ordering its just on a paypal page with no option for international postage?? Tried to contact by email, but had no reply.
i paid by paypal
and then sent an e-mail to them for int post which they sent another invoice for the postage
Cheers mate. Hope postage isn't too much.
Think it was arround 15
what have you ordered ?
Want to order some oil inlet and outlet flanges for my turbo. haven't done it yet tho.
Well finally the JE Pistons and ARP Studs have arrived.
JE 83.5MM Pistons 10.5 : 1 Comp
JE Pistons, Integrated Enegineering H - Beam and JE Pro Seal Ring Set.
ARP Main Cap Studs
ARP Head Studs
ARP Crank Studs
Wish i wasn't going on Holiday Tomorrow now! would have had it all assembled by next week otherwise.
What's the power target, and what sort of cams are going in?
The Cams are Paul Bargate's Old ones 11.2mm lift Duration TBC (Made by Tony Lerman GER from blanks) From his 2.0L 16v GMS Engine that pushed out 215 BHP on the 45mm Weber Alpha set up & Webcom Management and that was with a Mangoletsi inlet manifold.
So with the Badger5 45MM DTH Bodies, 250cc Injectors and my Microsquirt Management i think 220BHP is a realistic figure
Anything over 200 BHP and i will be very happy and arround 170 LB/FT Torque
Then later on once run in and i'm happy will be upgrading to the DTA Management & CAT Cams & Solid lifters, with even and extra row of injectors.
I was looking at the compression ratio, wondering if it's enough.
Is the ratio comparable with Paul's spec at 215bhp?
He had Standard compression on the 9A 10 : 1 the bottom end was totally standard just a flow head and these cams.
My ABF will be 11.5 : 1 with the Machined KR Head Thats why i went for stand comp piston's high compression ones would have been too high unless i ran on Race Fuel.
10:1 and 215bhp leaves me lost (re: Paul's motor).
GVK ran OE compression on moderate ?Newman? cams and was under 200, before it got sick.
Mine should be running about 12:1 and is mapped for 97 RON.
11.5:1 sounds like a healthy compromise though.
GVK didn't have 45 TB's fitted thou did he ?
We don't know the exact spec on the cams but that was the figures and he was running 12.7 sec NASP 1/4 with that engine until it snapped a rod last year!
i only ever use 99 RON with Octane aditive and so does Bargate.
Fair enough - well if it's gone now, that's that.
What sort of torque did it produce?
Leave that one with me ! I'm sure i have a print out somewhere .
Chris, you're not seeing the big picture, with the longer stroke, it'll be more than 10.5:1
Are the wrist pins offset on those JEs or are you having the crown machined the 1.35mm?
10.5:1 seems way low given (I'm guessing here) that you'll be running lumpy cams - The dynamic compression will surely be far too low (read as rotten) surely for NA?
Who's running 10.5 : 1 ?
Compression will 11.5 : 1 remember its a KR Head on a ABF Block
The were in Bargates 9A 10 : 1 comp old NASP and was an excellent engine
Also running Nitrous too so the compression will be spot on.
