Following on from my recent thread about blowing my engine up its now time to rebuild (albeit slowly as i get chance!) so i need a list of parts.

Im pressuming its on a standard bore for now and on that basis i have a set of 87mm wiseco pistons but wont commit myself untill the head is removed.

I will use the standard rods/crank as i am sure they are up to 700BHP? or are they?

I will source some acl shells and arp rod bolts. Obviously i will inspect the oil pump, and replace if need be. Also i will have the bottom end balanced.

As for head gasket, i have had great experiences with cometic in the past so will stick with them. Are standard head bolts up to the job?

I will port and polish the head myself, nothing too wild just remove and reshape the obvious areas (any tips).

Not sure what cams i have at the mo but i will be uprating them to suit my T78 turbo kit, obviously new gaskets and belts will be used.

I am new to the rb32 engine its something i have never rebuilt but am looking forward to getting stuck into, rebuilt several cosworth engines in the past. Before i realised the cars they are strapped to are shit.

Think i may have the rocker cocer/inlet etc polished at the same time, gonna get injectors cleaned and then once run in i will have it mapped at MGT as i have heard good things, certainly nothing bad.

Cheers

Pete

Good luck on your project. Hope to see some pics as things progress.. btw, I got a set of HKS step2 Lift 10.2 to go along with your T78 turbo kits if you are interested since it is no longer needed for my T78 kits (I have de-tuned my engine & turbo)

Ah like the collar on the cosworth cams to convert 2wd to 4x4
i dont know mate i never swapped any. the oil pump drive part of the early cranks are only 4 mm thick and they wear out so later cranks were made with a 20mm deep contact area for the oil pump to drive off.

just wait for glenns (use the search) post :runaway: lol
