how about je pistons? they offer 13.5:1 87mm standard and 88mm .040 over.. would either of those be a straight drop in?
Try doing a compression and leakdown test and tell us how it turns out...txtypes said:i have 87mm je in my k24, never honed the block nothing, it had 27k miles on it, maybe not the wisest thing to do...but i dont have any problem,s no oil consumption nothing....just dropped them in and kept going. I have about 100 plus hard runs and about 1000k on the build
Import Builders said:Usually, the vast majority of the time, the cylinders are in spec for stock bore pistons on a motor that has not been abused, overheated, super high miles, etc.
xproductionz said:so a k24 block that has about 6000 miles on it that was driven like normal would probably most likely take a stock bore piston and not require a hone as compared to a k24 that has 50000 miles on it?
good to hear...txtypes said:compression tet done,,,i was worried...
leak down passed aswell,,,i have element block 27k: je 12.5:1 coated skirt
and i just dropped hem in. as jeff stated low mileage nonabused blocks dont have this problem
under certain circumstances this thread would be true...at the moment wth just dropping them in its running like a champ
