So I had a dig through my collection of old 311vw rods and picked the best set all that were also within a few grams of each other

I gave them a quick wiggle check with a new piston pin to check the small ends feel ok and will check them for straightness this week before an end to end balance job.

Thanks Jay

Also I made a start on one of the exhaust ports to get the shape I'm looking for then will copy for the other three ports.

Thanks Jay

Will run EFI (most likely methanol or E85) with crank trigger ignition.

Thanks

Borrowed a turbo from a mate for mock up when the time comes. Its a holset hx35/40 and is what I plan to run on this. (pen for scale)

Also recently I built this little buggy engine for a customer and was thinking how well the exhaust would work for a turbo application

I think I may well go down this route as these exhausts are cheap and the pipes are close to equal length, I will probably separate the collector for the twin scroll exhaust housing.

Thanks

Jay

Yeah that header would work well. That's a big turbo, maybe too big.
Mine is 48 on the exhaust 61 on the cold. works well on 1911
