When I decided to have the full rebuild, it was simply a case of looking at it thinking 'Why wouldn't I?' while the whole thing was apart anyway. Same case for cams. I decided to have a perfectly good engine rebuilt too - I'd not had any failure before hand.So how many of you guys are running sleeved engines then?
When I had my CSS installed (not liners or sleeves), it was guaranteed to withstand up to 500HP. I've been over that for about 5K miles and seven or so months, and still going strong.Do you think running 300+ on a fully forged engine, all lightened and balanced plus the crank, flywheel etc will be too much? It's not a sleeved block. Block work done was decked block, bored +0.5, honed and crosshatched. Head ported and polished, 3angle valve job, the lightest of skims to clean the face of it and that's pretty much it.
The CSS does look like a more cost effective option Closed Deck Blocks : CPL RacingWhen I had my CSS installed (not liners or sleeves), it was guaranteed to withstand up to 500HP. I've been over that for about 5K miles and seven or so months, and still going strong.
Can you pm me details of the group buy please, Id be in on that!To be honest that list above and other replacement parts, water pump, vanos sensor, binning the rads etc for new because they looked all of their 96k has amounted to £5.5k in parts! I'd really like cams, but it's a question of where do you stop?
I did just spy these..Oranje charge £710 for Newman cams, but these guys came in at £580 for the same cams

Wouldn’t touch them with a barge poll personally!Celtic Tuning is remapping my car at the moment. It's a long process doing it remotely and data logging power runs. We're on version 15 of the software now but it's all starting to come together. I'll get it on the rollers shortly and see where we're at.
