240 B230 rebuild questions
As some will know Im in the process of determining the issue with the engine in the 240+t. The plan is to have it rebuilt if possible/necessary.
Ive got a hold of a 940s incase the fx motor is cactus.
The 940s is too good to wreck at this point so I and want to explore the options of a rebuild of the FX motor if its not stuffed. I think ive got a soft spot for them developing...
The idea is to run a 16t at 10-15psi and use the car as a daily. It already has an alloy intercooler and boost will be controlled electronically. Otherwise its standard LH2.4. Just want a sweet motor, not wanting to reinvent the wheel.
What head work or tidying can be done with the 531 head while its apart to sweeten it up? Im only familiar with 16v peugeot heads. We usually clean up the throat area, cut 3 angle seats and take of any poor casting marks as a minimum.
How much is safe to shave off the head assuming its never been done before? 1. To clean it up. 2. To raise the conpression lightly. Im not after crazy compression just asking to see if there are common issues or not in doing this.
Concerning pistons. Apparently there is a slight difference between the NA and Turbo b230 pistons. Is it worth tracking a turbo set down or just run the NA ones with new bits? (If there fine)
Having the rotating parts balanced would be nice. New bearings and rings and everything cleaned if need be And then pop it all back together.
Ive got lots of spare time coming up in April and want to hit the ground running with it.
Budget is $2500 Tops
