I just hope you have the suspension, LSD, and brakes to match. Even as NA it had the power to weight ratio of a Ferrari F360, now it's gonna be supercar fast.The engine is having a full rebuild now. I’ve got eagle rods, I’m not sure what pistons to go for. Spoon, CP or weisco. It’ll be a +.25mm oversize.
Might be back on the road in about a month.
I’m going to try and keep it as close to what it is now as I can, which is 13:1. Runs sweet, other than the smoke. Plus, high compression turbos aren’t as taboo as they once were.Nice! Did you decide on CR?
I'm sure it's a fair investment, but not worth much broken to you or anyone else. It'll be worth it when it's all done and dusted.

It’s on coil spring suspension rather than rubber cones at the front with adjustable shocks and coil overs at the back. LSD is an Mfactory helical racepack diff and the brakes are (brand new) from an MGTF, EBC drilled & groved discs and green stuff pads Oh and the rear drums are ally superfins which are both lighter and more efficient.I just hope you have the suspension, LSD, and brakes to match.

Yooo only just seen this post sorry mate.Any updates Harry?
tbh it may as well be, resleving a b series properly is tremendously expensive, 2k I was quoted for a dry deck. Apparently doing a conventional resleve rarely works due to some kind of Honda factory wizardry that’s hard to replicate, same for the cranks. Regrinds are pretty much a no go for most shops due to all the heat treatments etc. Mad how ahead of its time it was for what was effectively an 80’s engineI read "So this is the last chance for the block before it has to be binned"...
Glad I reread it, haha.
