So far I have done the usual uppgrades:

46mm Nitron trackday shocks

EP 1" anti rollbar

TD 8"-9" x 17 Wheels, toyo 888's

Fcr setup for rear brakes

300bhp dbilas turbokit, wtih extra oil cooler and upprighter valve springs

geo

 

Things to come

Rollcage

GMs bodykit

 

 

But I need some help...... I picked up my car last week at dbilas....it ran like a dream......had it round the nordschleife,and some serios "crusing" in the surounding area of adenau.....On my way home from Germany I got the coolant warning light :excl:  :excl:  :excl:  ... water in oil, and oil in water.... :angry2:  :angry2:

So guess I have blown my head gasket...... So its time for a engine rebuild.......

 

Questions :- Are the eagle rods,wiseco piston combo good enough or should I go for ZRP rods and wøssner pistones.?

                   - where can i buy Neutral Balance Shafts  zzp is out of Stock.

 

Any sugestions for parts and supplyers for the engine rebuild is very helpfull :blush:

 

Cheers Stig

check the oil cooler first, very unlikely to be the head gasket

Then check the cylinder head hasn't cracked after removal/insertion of a spark plug.

Are you running 300 bhp on standard conrods and pistons? The limit for the conrods is usually 250-270 bhp

Neutral rods not needed, just do a full delete! No running or reliability issues this way. Might get away turbo 300bhp on std rods and pistons for road but not track. 270 max for SC not including the 30bhp to drive the SC it's self.

Tested the oil cooler With 4 bars of pressure , no leaks,did a compression test on the head all cylindes got upp to the same pressure, one of the cylinders used a little more time to build the same pressure, sparkplugs ok.  Car runs fine on idle, noe black or white smoke.... Since the oilcooler is ok, then it can't anything else than the head gasket.....

 

Then I think its time for a Complete engine rebuild: New rods,low compression pistones,lighten flywheel, New clutch,main bearings,valves cams,porting etc.

 

Any recomandations of witch parts to use in a 2.2 turbo build???

z22se engine has 9 Bar of oil pressure, so 4 Bar isn't enough to prove the oil cooler is okay.

 

I have yet to hear of a z22se head gasket failing unless the engine has been run without any coolant :huh:

there have been many leaking oil coolers on vx220 / speedsters, but only one head gasket failure - due to no coolant

 

as for an uprated engine, use this sc engine build as a guide http://www.z22se.co....ne-build.12272/

And about the balance delete try this.http://www.levelzero...01f323b86a6a7e0

 

And here are DIY..http://www.j-body.or...432339&t=432339

 

Or the best way delete the chain and use a electric water pump.http://www.daviescra...07-details.aspx

 

 

I have use a electric pump the last year on my 2,2 NA.

Nice. Very neat way to mount the bracket for the crank sensor. Impossible to fit that incorrectly. :D

Ideas for mounting on top of the exiting cover plate is: If you don't want to machine the Pulley, the just shim the bracket and the trigger wheel eaqually.. the triggerwheel can be andjustet 2mm each way in rotation.... It's hard to measure on the cover... but I expect You would need max 1 mm of adjustment...

Why not make the bit that goes over the cover plate solid so it can replace the existing cover plate?
