Rick's back. Registered as mojoperf now after difficulty with the old registration.
Finally running. The third set of pistons/rings was the charm, as the ones provided by my stroker kit builder never did work. For this one I took the liberty of installing .260 wall wrist pins as well as Total Seal Steel rings. Still Venolia forged stroker pistons to my calculations/spec, 8.5 compression for use with stock length rods. I don't know if I will ever go E85, as 1. none available within 40 miles 2. Fuel system maintenance looks troublesome, 3.I don't need more power as traction control kicks in lots with 265/35-18 Michelin pilot super sports.
I love this setup! Now with a ported head w/ +1 mm valves, HKS 272 cams, OSGiken triple, and a BW EFR9180.
For the latest startup I filled the oil pump with STP and got instant oil pressure off the starter.
Working on the MS3 Pro tune, all good except for some tricky places in the just off-idle areas, probably difficult due to the cam and big throttle body.
More later, I'm off to a meet.
This car has run me out of money. The stroker motors never did work out -probably because of the piston/ring combos provided by PAECO - after the 3rd unsuccessful rebuild I finally refreshed my original 3.0 GE with turbo pistons and Eagle rods, and put it together with my worked VVTI head, HKS 272 cams, and a BW 9180 EFR. It was crazy fast until my V160 decided to refuse to select gears. I'm done , will be selling the car. I will post in the cars for sale area when I get permissions sorted out. This is a sad time - I love this car, but it has to go.
With the stroker, I never could get the rings to seal - and it seems like there was some issue with block oiling. The ring sealing problem I lay on the pistons that were provided - The block oiling I have no idea. The block had its plugs removed and boiled out at the machine shop - all clearances checked good - maybe some issue with the crank? I have built many engines, and never had problems like this.
