Yeah it is very neat. The wiring harness is awesome, very well done. You don't have to run power wires for anything, they are already in the loom. For eg, the injector wiring bunch has 8 signal wires and 8 power wires already there. It is a lot more of a plug and play than the megasquirt, but you obviously pay for it.

So i tore down the rest of my engine bay today. I just wanted to ask what you thought of the look of these pistons.
There is a little bit of oil on a couple of them around the edges, and a bit of gunk build up I guess you'd call it. I had a little oil in the intake manifold from the pcv, so I'm not sure if it was from that. The motor has done 2000km's, and a fair bit of that was running pretty rich as I was tuning things etc.

You probably would have had some blow-by before the rings seated properly. I would not be concerned about what you see there.
Water injection will clean it all up šŸ˜

Man you guys love spending other peoples money don't you. I will say that I'm not afraid of buying something if it's good value and then selling it later on if I decide not to use it.
How much do you want for the bottom end Shaun?

Ive actually got to fit it at Xmas just to get the custom headers made, I was going to run it for a bit and sneak up on the dart, and swap them over. But if your interested we could maybe sort something out and I'll pull it back out, dont really care either way, was just going to be lazy finish car drive it a while. It would be plenty quick enough, I just want something that is safe to rev 7000 constantly. Didnt want to rush the 363 either. So I'll either sell it or wrap it in glad wrap and use it in another car one day.

One thing not to do is scrape all that crap off and clean the bore, the last thing you want is carbon grit down in the rings.

Just have them at TDC and push some grease around the edge this will hold the crap when you lower the piston and the you can wipe it out.

Thanks for the tips. I'll get stuck into cleaning the block surfaces soon. Just deciding on whether to re use the gt40p iron heads or not. Only thing that worries is me is reading over the net about the thin deck height of the gt40p head, and with boost they like to lift heads. I don't particularly want to strip me engine bay again, so it's weighing heavily on my thought process at the moment burnout

Non-P heads will also give you lots more header options.

There's some used E-street heads on fleabay at the moment

I wouldn't pay for e streets. The valve train in them is cheap, and won't suit a roller cam. So you need to factor the cost of a new spring kit. You now have an average head with good springs. For a bit more you can get trickflow heads

Have a lot for some Dart Pro 1 heads, they are ok and VPW used to have them for a good price, they need a tidy up in the bowels etc. I think they CNC the bowels now though

My PRO1's needed the chambers cleaned up, but I got mine cheap.
GBX has a nice set of heads for sale, but his have the high exhaust ports, so will need headers to suit.

How much boost are you planning to run? I'm sure your heads will be fine for sane amounts of boost.
Not a huge job to change them down the track anyway.
