I know. I can't believe how fat time flies. With this coronavirus thing going on, I don't even know if we can close the deal on the house yet.

Well interest rates have been slashed which will work well for you.

I decided to upgrade my pistons to diamond pistons. I asked them to make them to handle 350hp per cylinder and I added side gas port too. Pyramid rings also arrived from U.K. Now I'm waiting for my other machinist to finish my bracket for the crank sensor so I can get it mounted. Hopefully by then I'll be sending the block to machine shop.
I'm also selling my other CP pistons. They are 9:1 compression and for a hair over stock bore.

We’ve actually made 350 a hole with those slugs. Same design just vertical ports.

They hold up great and don’t beat the cylinders up bad. When you make real power a full round piston like those works best.

What pins did you get? We use the trend pins that are .250” wall.


Also, I hope you didn’t let them “up sell” you their “top” ring pack. We use the gas nitrided moly faced rings with a custom cylinder finish. We blow less into the can than anyone else running the power we are.

I went with their H13 pins. The wall is pretty thick. I think they set it up for the power goals I have. I just asked them for gapless rings. No idea what material they used. It's total seal racing rings. They sure weren't cheap though. Lol

That’s pretty wild! What did you set the pickup clearance to bottom of pan at?

Great build! That pan is nice. Might consider throwing some more/bigger holes in the top of your tray though. Want that oil to return quickly and not get caught up in the rotational assembly.

I don't think the engine uses that much oil. I looked at other racing oil pans and they had about the same size holes.

The pick-up comes with its own bracket for clearance.

Had to do some modifications on the injectors to be able to mount the rails while the manifold is installed. Have to make some new brackets for the rails. Bought a bunch of wires and such to rewire the engine harness.

That's awesome! Perhaps I missed it, but how much did the pan effect your ground clearance?
oil pan height is the same as the factory pan.

That's too many for my use. And I'll have to CNC a set of custom fuel rails for that. The regular fuel rails won't fit in that spot unless I do the same thing as Brian did. I got lucky to find these Cosworth fuel rail. they barely fit.

The width of the pan is where you pick up the additional oil capacity. As long as the oil drain plug is in a convent spot you are good to go. That is nice looking work.
