Paint job looks great man, and I need to replace my tie rods so I'll probably head up the street and grab stone of those too.
Thank you sir! I've been a Calvin and Hobbes fan since I was a kid.Nice avatar :wink:
Oooof, 8.7:1? I wonder when the piston manufactures are going to realize you dont need this whole "low compression idea" to boost a B series engine, anymore. Right now would be about right, lol. I have found the same issue in researching pistons in the past, no one offers a damn 10:1 piston in all bore sizes.Just found out today that the pistons I have been waiting for are 5 weeks out on production. Still waiting to hear back from the seller but from the sound of it they had Wiseco K541M82AP in stock which are 8.7:1. A little lower in compression that I wanted but you only have so many options for 82mm pistons.
Ive looked into every brand I can think of lol. JE, Wiseco, Arias, CP...probably more they didnt offer anything I was looking for.Oooof, 8.7:1?

Hmmmm, which brands have you looked into?
I thought about that but I would feel more comfortable with the 3 layer. I will probably end up going with an 82mm Golden Eagle HG. I also have flat faced valves and slight milling to the head/block so the compression will be a little higher
Yeah im pretty excited to get the block back and finally be able to start piecing the motor back together.I love what your doing!
The bays gonna look great, clean clean clean
If your not gonna get enough out to paint the whole bay may I suggest some touch up paint after a good cleaning (original paint)
Yeah especially with this seller. Its just proof that the pistons are ACTUALLY on there way. They have had a very slow turn around time on ordering the parts both times. It took them a week and a half after receiving the pistons I returned to order the new pistons which were in-stock at Wiseco. :icon_twisted:Always good to have a tracking number!
Luckily 95TeggyRS lives just a couple minutes away so he said he would come grab them when he got off work so they shouldnt be out for too long. He also said he would drop them off at SpeedFactory Saturday so I wont have to wait until Tuesday to do it.Thats great news bro! I just got mine today and im going to drop everything off tomorrow morning. I bet your anxious just having your pistons sitting there. It will be worth it though for sure.
