WOW minus the various typo's and lack of rereading before submitting the comment I also clearly put in the wrong User name.

I = FAIL lmao

OK - enough already. If you want to continue OT - take it to PM's or start you own topic. No need to reply to this.

Worked on the water pipes for the Tial 44mm. Added -4 AN fittings to the main water pipe & to the oil cooler return/block drain line. The PTE is oil cooled only, so no need for the water ports.

'04 2.3HPT block is here, stripped it yesterday & dropped the block, carrier, pan & hardware off at the machine shop. If he can switch the order with JE - I'll go with longer H-beams from RSI, and short forged pistons. Apparently the rods have a non-standard small end - 22.8mm, so either they have to be re-bushed or different gudgeon pins have to be made.

Hybrid turbo is already sold. 139.5mm H-beams will be up for sale, too if I go with longer rods. :)

I don't have any issues bridging the two ports with a good heater hose. I also had them blocked for a while. Both options worked fine.

BTW, that turbo looks gorgeous.

better rod stroke ratio I assume? Any downsides to this that you know of hussein? I was thinking of the longer rod/shorter piston skirt combo my self for my 01 block build...

anything about the 04 block that makes it special other than the different piston/rod setup in comparison to the 01? My 01 block still has crank vents and the oil pan cooler was just wondering

much love

Take a look in the other thread () - the end of it includes info on rods/pistons. I'm not sure if 147mm is the best - R's used 143mm (but larger displacement...), so I don't know what's up with that...

'04 has revised oil squirters, revised breather, slightly different mountings & added castings for the later RNC setup T/stat etc..

Not sure that's anything of significance. I just wanted a later 2.3 block, and this is what came up. The stock longer rods are definitely better than the earlier version, but I won't be using them or the crank.

A simple calculation. Crank got more stroke. Pistons stayed roughly the same as did the block itself. Gained stroke needs to go somewhere so they shortened the rods.

Right - I forgot the crank changed to 93.2mm, Mark mentioned that. Thanks for the clarification!

As you know my old S70 was sold with a 2003 T5 engine which has done 470 crank HP at a certain point with a stock engine. Car was sold last year and slightly detuned, est. 380 crank HP, before it changed owners. New owner apparently with lesser knowledge fiddled the waste gate and went to the track. Results, a broken piston. Engine was taken apart, head overhauled and new pistons installed. Some time later same story, same cylinder broken piston again. I heard they rebuild the engine again, don't know which shape it is in now, but the rods in this engine have not been an issue.

Yes, I reread that thread in the past few days. Very impressive numbers! I wonder which piston he broke? I'll see if anyone is interested in the later stock rods, I'm still going to put H-beams in for safety measure. I don't know what I'm going to end up with in terms of output once I switch to VEMS, so I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Started pulling apart the car - got the intake, wiring harness, & all the front end crap out of the way

Took more apart today & just tried to figure out how much space I actually have for the Tial

This is the space

IMG_0173.jpg

The Tial has to fit in here

IMG_0171.jpg

no space

IMG_0169.jpg

did a couple of sketches to help me figure it out. The documentation suggests that the inlet to the WG has to less than 90º with the flow. Going to be tough to accomplish given the space. The LG header with the V band flange has the flange right up against the header. I was thinking of bringing it out a few inches.
