Sorry to hear about the trouble..
Once you get the new parts in front of you it will be like christmas all over again lol..  Just be dyin to get at it and get it running again..

Did you consider the steel liner option?

I regret not going for the std compression forgies for my car.. You getting the wossner ones from andy?

Gud luck with the rebuild!
Regards

I will be using Wossner yes, i have some lower comp ones in the pipeline at the moment from a member on RTOC (hopefully) but if they don't come to anything i'll go standard comp & new from Andy @ BB, the used ones have only done a few pod runs & the guy is going to get them out & check them over before committing to selling them :)
Steel liners i won't bother with, i hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the arse though :)

So many mixed views on the forged pistons and steel liners combo.

I've got wossner low comp forged items in mine, last time i checked they were a bit sooty but in one piece.  8)

I've got the previous owner to thank for those.

Is yours very noisey from cold ?
Do the pistons rattle alot till the car is warm i mean ?
Should have the pistons tomorro or sat i hope, then it's rebuild time :)
More boost this time as well!!

I've noticed lately it is very noisy when cold but i think the valve cleareances need checking again i've done about 8'000miles since i last set them.

But as far as i remember it's always been noisy when cold.

I think forged pistons do untill they warm up.

Well i'm going to run either a little retard or lots of octane booster & get a stethescope to listen for det, hopefully get 25psi manifold out of her for pod, stick to 21psi day to day, i picked up a campus filler neck today so i can ditch the aux tank, plus i also picked up some 14x 6 1/2 j clio rims for my mickey thompson drag tyres  :twisted:

For sure, i just ripped the aux tank out & fitted a campus filler neck, pistons won't be here till Monday but i may rip the engine out over the weekend & get it on the stand ready to fit them, need to fit the clutch anyway :)
Then Monday i'll order the M/T drag tyres... another 300   :roll:

Got the pistons yesterday & the tyres today, just need to get around to fitting the pistons, need some new liner seals 1st & wiat for my cylinder hone kit to turn up.




They were a real pain in the arse to fit, had to go to 2 different tyre fitters :)
