Pulling the motor day by day







As you may already see those pistons don't look right for a supposed OEM engine... I look for the p73 cast marks but they aren't there. Why do these pistons look so weird? Oh wait they're not OEM at all!!!

Custom cunningham I beam rods w/arias high compression pistons!!! SCORE

Yes it has. I started about 6 months ago and I'm moving nonstop with this dream build of mine. I'm taking my time though and making sure no steps are cut short... Do it right the first time!

Default Re: 88 CRX BUILD

RIGHT NOW IM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO RETAIN ALL MY FORCED INDUCTION PARTS AND CONVERT BACK TO ALL MOTOR. IM SWAPPING OUT MY CP PISTONS FOR HIGH COMPRESSION ARIAS PISTONS. LOOKING TO GET MY DISHED VALVES SWITCHED FOR FLAT VALVES FROM MY LOCAL SHOP REVLINE IN KANSAS CITY. IM GOING TO FIND A SPARE BLOCK SINCE I JUST TRADED MY BARE BLOCK TO A BUDDY SO I CAN TAKE MY TIME SENDING OUT THE BLOCK TO GOLDEN EAGLE FOR SLEEVING. I THINK THAT STARTING OFF ALL MOTOR VS BOOSTING WILL HELP ME TRANSITION AROUND THE CIRCUIT TRACK GETTING THE BEST FEEL FOR THE CRX SUSPENSION WITHOUT OVER POWERING AND POSSIBLY LOSING CONTROL OF MY HANDLING. WHEN I FEEL COMFORTABLE ILL SWITCH AND HOPEFULLY A FEW EXTRA POUNDS DOESNT THROW OFF THE WEIGHT AND HANDLING TOO MUCH. ILL KEEP THIS BUILD THREAD UP TO DATE AS MUCH AS I CAN.

Watch out with the intake porting, theres a way to port them. It wont work if its all polished. The gaz will get into the combustion chamber as a drop. Make sure the entering of the combustion chamber is more like oem porting. (not polished and raw alluminium)

Porting and polishing decreases turbulence from stock castings and allows quick transition through the inlet and outlet ports!?! Anyways I don't plan on polishing it just a mild port job. I'll pay for someone to do it any further.

It's not about the air. It's about the gaz getting out of the injectors. If they get into the combustion chamber as a drop, the porting work will be a mess.

Why would fuel get into the combustion chamber as a drop? If that happens I've got bigger things to worry about!!! (i.e. bent rods) Hopefully my injectors spray correctly and my air flow/venturi affect atomizes the fuel. I still don't get how porting my inlets ports will change that?
