Sorry, I can't help thinking of this movie everytime someone says they're from France. I bet there's some other swedish companies as well that would be easier for you to get pistons from. Not that John Vs are not worth getting, and I know he ships internationally.

Thank you mocambique but i have a job and a life, and even if TB is full of great threads, i can't read it all. Why the **** people always need to play it tough and sarcastic because they hide behind their keyboard is beyond me.
He's like -8 or -9 hours from France so if you call at 21h00 it'll be noon for him.

No worries John, it's just that you wrote me a nice PM few weeks ago and then nothing. I was wondering

I've seen the thread too! And some discussion about rpm/sec influence on the numbers (600-1000), which is of course relevant but I can't help to be amazed by the numbers! Super nice stuff.

Also there is a thread with comparison of cylinder liner/bore wear between stock-ish and aftermarket pistons. Whole different can of worms!

Havent been online for a while...
The engine still isnt finished..
Im starting over again and want to make somthing of what i have laying around.
I wrecked my old b230ET,
Trying to pass over stuff to an flushed low milage empty FK block.
Now ive got another FK laying around.
Is it wise to swap the FK rods/pistons
Or swap the ET rods and pistons
The parts of the ET ar already out of the engine.
Plan was to make a small 260/300 HP with a 16T turbo i recently bought for nothing.
And what Cam will work best.
Ive red about the M cam...

Sorry for bumping up this pretty darn old post guys

You have read about the M cam so know to chuck it into teh scrap pile. Of the factory cams teh A cam is a good choice for a broad power band from idle up.

As to the rods and pistons the FK's are the not soo silly weak 13mm ones so use them. The 9mm rods are good for nothing
