Shipped my engine to Billet Pro Shop in Dec and just got it back yesturday. Pretty pumped to get everything back together and tested! I went a little lean on #1 cylinder my last race of the season and it was starting to curl the piston. New piston, rings, line coated, HD wrist pins and Oringed the block. Should be good for 2000hp now as long as I don’t starve it again. Hah

Anyways I figured I’d share since I’ve been waiting for this for 6months and a little excited.

Are the head and oil cooling mods not necessary in this build? I was asking because you have easy access to do both on the engine stand.

Which ones are you referring to? I’ve been running this power level for the past few years without any real heat issues thankfully.

I'm not a fluid engineer but that tube looks like it will just trap air.

Those sleeves look factory in that Gen 3 block. Very very nice.

Are those Mahle pistons?

The first two pics are the original engine build and the last one is the most recent.

Im running those exact pistons in my built gen3... they're a little noisy at first start up until they warm up. Piston material on the mahle units is 2618.

However, my block is not sleeved -- it has the factory nikasil or whatever they call it so id imagine with your sleeves it won't be as noisy.

I haven’t heard of any issues like that, but I’m like you, also not a fluid engineer. I hope I don’t encounter any trouble with that, especially given how messy of a job it was to install. There’s no way I would have done this mod if I hadn’t had the tranny out of the car, although there are some that say it’s doable. I need to see and have good access to what I’m doing. The oiling mod on the other hand, is just not possible with the engine in the car on 2018+ cars.

Depends on which Mahle pistons they are. MOST Mahle are actually 4032.

Nope I didn’t notice any additional noise with these at all. 🤷‍♂️

what's the cost for all that
Im in Canada so more expensive than the US but around $23k US for everything. Even freight shipping is expensive here.
