just collected the scat h beams from the machine shop...

type 1 style h beams from serrano vws in CA, 24 mm bushings from CSP in germany and then off to piston broke machine shop in bristol...

nearly there ! ;)

all i need now is the sleeves for the lifter bores, hopefully from knofe in germany, and all ready to dry assemble.

i'm still trying to track down a set of MV, SR or SS pistons as these are the low compression ones... the DJ pistons i've got are 10.5 :1 and a little too high for a turbo motor... talking with conor at raceshack he's convinced me to shell out the extra money for a ball bearing turbo - less friction, they spool up quicker at lower RPM so you can put a larger one one (in theory) and his target is 20lb of boost through it...
so...

a set of 9:1 low comp pistons would be helpful...

let's see what i can find...
