Just contacted Brandtab and they don't want to ship outside of sweden. Too bad because he seems to do some nice work. Thanks anyway.

Still figuring all out. I wanna be sure i got the right engine to begin with. The more i read the more it seems that way.
Against all odds, i might have found a getrag 265. I'm going to pick it up next week. From there, i'll see if a swap the tranny before tearing the engine down, or do it all at once.

After reading "the story of a greek" build thread, i'm not sure what CR i should be shooting for, as he went with 9.1:1 and it looks like its holding good at 30psi, without being a slug off boost.

But i look forward to build that engine, its so simple iof a design it hurts my brain lol.

about that cr stuff, i really wonder if i should bore the block to b230 specs and use turbo pistons.
The site i mentionned few posts earlier appaers to be a pain to buy from so i'd be better off buying oem b230 oem pistons and b230 h beams as these are available from many shops (yoshifab is what i am leaning towards to)

Since the difference betwwen b200 and b230 is the bore size, i don't see why i couldnt make me a 2.3.

i read somewhere that the walls of te cilinder are not fat enough for boring it out to 96mm. and with 30psi that's defenitly going to fail.

but why don't you search a b230 those are plenty around and not expensive.

If you buy the 265 cheap just sell it for € 1000,- or more and use the profit to weld the afore mentioned diesel box. The youngest 265's are 30 years old and the design is 50 years old.
And by the way they come in overdrive and close ratio aka dog leg. The latter were fitted on euro e30 m3's and everything e30 m3 is worth gold nowadays.
