well, as it sits right now. my engine sounds like a diesel, there is some piston slap going on in there, I think the rings are just about done. so we're pulling out the bottom end, punching it 25 over and I'm reassembling it with some rods and pistons. I just need to check my options to whats available.The stock 1.6L is a great engine for mild boost in it's stock form. The 1.8 isn't so bad either.. What do you plan on doing?
FYI, FM offers 9:1 pistons for boosted setups and 11:1 for N/A:flyin miata has a setup for 8.1 compression with carrilo rods
I want to make a 1:1 compression motor, you have inspired me.ha, funny thing though, my old 88 Mitsu Starion had 7:1 compression ratio :shock: STOCK
D'OH! Just past the nick of time. I have an engine being built using Carrillo and Weisco. #-oFYI, FM offers 9:1 pistons for boosted setups and 11:1 for N/A:flyin miata has a setup for 8.1 compression with carrilo rods
FYI, the name is Carrillo, not Carrilo: http://www.carrilloind.com/
Pauter rods are better than Carrillo: http://www.pauter.com/
CP pistons are better than Wiseco: http://www.cppistons.com/
