I think he means Here We Go Again, because he was getting called out earlier today for a high power figure without a mods list to match.
I didn't know Supertech made pistons and rods and certainly never heard of anyone using them in a Mini. The most common are pistons from Wosner or Arias and rods from Eagle or Carillo. 1320 do a good deal on Wossners and their own rebranded rods and Arias from RMW. You will need to go oversize to get the best from them because you can have the bore sized exactly for the correct wall clearance for the pistons you choose.
edit: those are R53, but you seem to have an R58? Don't know anything about the Turbo POS engine, but how is the ECU managing that and have you modded the fueling system to keep up?
Also, what are you aiming to achieve by doing an engine build? Increased compression, safety, what?
Hi thanks for the reply.
I dont like people just jumping on a post saying here we go again i hope its just a misunderstanding. I got figures and mods and I can show them if i figure out how to upload a photo on here lol.
Well this is the first time I see the supertech pistons myself to be honest and i was curious. SUPERTECH PISTONS LINK
Thanks for the different types of pistons I know the wossner ones and also CP. need to check out the Arias rods and prices.
Im keeping the compression the same as it is from factory. The main reason im touching the bottom end is for the rods as the factory ones cant handle the torque but since im opening the bottom end I will change the pistons (just for the sake of doing a complete job). I know the JCW pistons can handle the power.
Im just looking for 350 if i can go more I wont say no. At that stage the fuelling system will need some changes eg injectors.
At the moment nothing is needed and the factory Bosch ECU can handle everything fine. its a pain in the ass to sort it out though ill tell you this hehe.
The new turbo that should be installed in december/january will be the GT28 killer (which was still in testing stages but now its ready and its an absolute dream) *EDIT* : I already have a hybrid turbo on the car its the one I use now and another one is on its way
P.S to post
Just in case anyone asks or has doubts about my car, it is a project and i have spent some money on it for my pleasure.
If people have doubts about anything or want to be a smart ass please dont bother my post as I am just looking for advice and people willing to help and not to get into fights and trying to prove something to someone i dont even know.
But for specs and if needed advice to them or me I am more than willing to post anything
