Feels like chrismas !

By the way, when installing the LSD, I would want to change the gearbox oil since it's been on the car for 170 000 km, but I can't find a definitive anwser on what is the best oil to use with the getrag and a LSD..

Fresh out of the machine shop, nothing was needed but a resurfacing, they said they've never seen a block with 170 000km and a broken piston in such a condition .

For the rebuilt, we're going with 77mm(OEM size) forged wossner pistons, ZRP forged conrods, ARP bolts and King racing bearings.
Dat Gonna be gud

nice

I guess you already have the pistons if they've honed it?

and the rods....

They didn't needed to have them apparently, they found only a 0.025mm difference in diameter in one of the cylinders. So they're still in OEM specs.

I guess I could ask them, but since they're building actual race rally car for professional competition, I have full trust in their craft.

well, the piston to bore clearance for forged is typically a bit larger than stock, less the skirt coating thickness on Wossner, actual piston size is on the box,

do you have the rods? There's a delay now until the end of the year,

Oh yeah yeah, don't worry, I know everything is on delay right now, but I'm not in a hurry, this project has been in the making for 4 years in it's current state, I can wait a little longer. I'll ring some reseller in Germany and Belgium, they've got stock from what I know
The head is what will require the most amount of time and work anyway, Supertech is superdelayed.

Michelin Pilot Sport 3 or Yokohama Advan Neova (AD08RS) ?

Same price, same size, same availability.
I'm leaning more toward the Michelin, I know this tire, I know they're amazing on the road and on track and last forever.
I love the look of the Yoko, but they changed the reference, and the revew don't look good on these..
