    just gathering info really as i am curious...

    when u have a engine rebuild what actually do u change?
    also is it like having a new engine? if that makes sense?

          things like bottom end
          pison's and Rods changed to steel rods an forged pistons
          new bearings
          balance the bottom end is a good one to do and easy also
          all the bolts an nuts
          I like to change from bolts to studs and nuts for the head
          the truth is out there
          part GSI part VXR

              Wouldn't say easy unless ya know what ya doing like I did.can really go wrong if clueless. Don't like studs and nuts and the new rods etc are on dowls so align perfectly

                yer mate understasnd wt ur saying so is ur engine like a brand new one?

                are the cossie pistons better than vxr ones? as i thought vxr ones were forged?

                  when i did my cossie i changed the head bolts
                  to studs an nuts never had a problem an that was always on the drag strip
                  only 2 racing seats left inside
                  if it was not needed it was cut out and covered with alloy sheet
                  the truth is out there
                  part GSI part VXR

                      I'm also a fan of changing over to studs and nuts on the head

                        no
                        see for high power builds its better to start off with a engine Block thats done high miles
                        I have had a new Z20 Block out side going rusty for a over year now

                        its getting nice an hard ready for big power when i use it

                              letting it rust does nothing but it will need cleaned up anyway before fitting and rehoned.

                              I always keep mine oiled up and in a garage.
