DeeWorks is making me a nice T6 torque plate in order to drill the bores nice and straight to 81.2mm

Will probably go for these Traum pistons that Yoshifab should be able to provide in a timely matter.

Need to drop that thing on the floor a couple of times to break it in proper! Where did the other spacer go?
I say this in jest. Good looking piece that I hope you only have to use once! Looking forward to following this build.

It's right there by the rubber mallet!

I may end up renting it for a small fee to other TB members... Even with a rent fee of $50 + shipping back and forth it would save the user a good $200 over having one made.

I wouldn't trust honing a 700+ hp build without this thing bolted to the block anyway so I had no other choice than having one made by DeeWorks.

It's good for all Whiteblock sixes I think since the holes are 84mm. I'll just have to check for the head bolt pattern on an earlier (1991) B6304 block I have in my garage.


Edit: Roger-Dee told me it will also fit on a 5 cylinder Whiteblock...

And you could save on the cost of shipping if I bring it over to you when I'm traveling to Moose Creek!

I'm getting one for sure. My CDxxx is in his shop as he still has some measurements to take for the 1/2JZ crowd.

They've been available for awhile on his website? When did you buy the T5 adapter?

I bought it back in May. I don't see it on the website, I only see the redblock adapter. I'm swapping a B6304S

You're right! I just checked with him and he has to finalize the pilot bushing for the Whiteblock adapter before he'll list it on the Website.

Woohoo!!!

Going to pickup my set of Traum T6 forged pistons at the US Border today! Provided by Yoshifab!

Can't wait to see what these look like and give them to my machinist so he can finally drill the bores!

Interesting. Yours have valve reliefs, I’m not sure my t5 set did. Still waiting on rods for my t6 set to ship.

They should have valve reliefs!?

Didn't get my rods. Josh shipped the pistons alone cause my machinist wants to get the block out of his shop and needed the pistons to drill the holes.

I didn't realize the T6 could be had with an 81mm bore.... thought only the 5 bangers offered the small bore / more boost capability. Should be an exciting inline 6! Have you fit checked already in the 740 engine bay? A definite improvement on the redblock rear distributor against the darn firewall!

Very interested... .and will follow your progress. I haven't been to Quebec City since... 30 years now! I know the food was spectacular.... and I nearly died skiing Mont Saint-Anne.....
