On the other hand i am also working on my e93 M3 with a slightly modified engine and exhaust system, but we stay with the NA engine at this time.
    Bro, no credit to me for anything. Whatever happens, your car or mine, we like cars. Ultimately it comes down to being enthusiasts.

    Lol, "weeks".....remember people there are 52 weeks in a year. Stickys build has only taken weeks to complete, 156 weeks to be exact.

    I bet it is not ready by April 1st.

    No, no, no. I'm launching my own Youtube channel and won't be giving anyone else the benefit of my content. Why invite Top Gear when you can beat them at their own game?

    Top Gear might be off the air by the time Stickys car gets done, the Stig might be living in a nursing home and cars might have wings and fly by the time his car is ready.

    The long rod idea is very interesting. So are you going to use a spacer of some kind? Wouldn't this create issues with the rings when it crosses from the stock cylinder walls onto the spacer? Or would the gap between the top of the piston and the rings not require the rings to cross this threshold? Or perhaps a different shaped piston top...

    Elongated sleeves will compensate for the "spacer", so the pistons + rings will never travel across a disruption

    Ok, I'm back to feeling for you for the missing of your car..
    I can see raising the deck highth of the block having all sort of delaying implications.
    I'll be try to be more patient...again.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    I haven't said what was done really. I'll go into it all eventually, I promise. I'm not the kind of guy not to.

    But I thought you mentioned that it wouldn't be necessary to 'sleeve' the block? So I had assumed this would be done without any sleeving work.

    I'm gonna assume you meant to quote me since I previously quoted you about the sleeves being elongated to pass through the spacer. All Gintani Stage 3 builds get sleeved blocks. The problem is that when you strap a Vortech YSI blower on, the S65 alusil block has flex issues. The iron spacer is there to give the block additional rigidity (and in turn, fight off the block flex).

    No I meant to quote sticky as it was his comment I was referencing. But I recalled wrong, he said he wasn't going to do flanged sleeves. Thats where my confusion came from as I thought he said no sleeves period.

    Tuning alone will eat up a good portion of these 4 weeks with unpaved territory, no?
