Ja Tinus, dis n moeilike call om te maak. Gewoonlik as mens n gekraakte piston op tel is daar nie ander skade nie, maar dis nie altyd so nie.

O ja Errol, veramic coating is DIK duur! R500/piston kop en R350/precomp. Daai geld gaan ek eerder gooi na stainless mandrel boost pype en dalk n nuwe stainless exhaust by Abel. Ek beplan nie om 600+ EGT's te ry nie so glo nie die prys regverdig my doel nie.

As die piston breek ga die head en conrod deur die blok nie grappies wees nie .....dan koop ek eerder reg pistòns big ends en n head gasket.....imho :surprised: :mytwocents:

Yep, en my idee van veilige EGT is 650! Ek moet dalk die dieselpomp sommer vroegtydig bietjie toedraai?

Arme Michael het tans baie hooi op sy vurk - ek sal hom pla om na Chuck se pistons te kyk wanneer sy groen gevaarte eers weer heel is...

Ok so FINALY got my patrol going again and struggeling to drive it slow as it feels really smooth. I can really feel a huge difference in vibration insude the car with the balanced engine, it revs up much easier and cant wait to give it beans

I settled for only balancing the engine, building a new downpipe as my old one was very sad and not nearly what I have in mind for making power, and doing the precom mod as the excersize was not cheap.

I will also get my newly built intake manifold tomorrow, but will fit it a bit later.

I have also done some lobster bending on my intake pipe which looks very cool and will be doing all my boost pipes as well

Seen and heard in person this morning. Very nice. Engine sounds so smooth. Petrol-like smoothness.

MATT BLACK!!
Michael, watse verf het jy gebruik om die fenders te verf? moet mens eers n primer vir die plastiek gebruik? :think:

myne het so bietjie rock/bush rash opgedoen op die river trip... maar oorweeg om dit swart te verf en die agterste bumper ook swart te maak..
Sal maar later sien wat om te maak... :thumbup:
