Default Make Your Boosted Engines Bulletproof!

Bulletproofing...our greatest weapon against blowing our engines from spraying or boosting. What's involved you say? A crap load. Here's a list that I started on HP....moving it here...because we deserve to have it here. If someone can make this a sticky, that'd be great.

Most the items on this list was put together by Mechanix_034 on HP.com:

Block and heads teardown and blueprinting

-Honing of cylingers and bore alignment using a torque plate
-Crank alignment
-Block clearancing
-Deburring of the block
-Trueing of deck
-Cleanup of oil and water galleries
-Weld close water jackets
-Micropolishing of bearing journals[all]
-Magnaflux stress releiving on the block and sonic test

Internal rework

-Change to full Crower counter crankshaft kit
-Crower Con-rods
-Cosworth pistons
-Full race bearings[high-load]

Head rework

-Trueing of deck
-Deburring of heads
-Cam journal alignment
-Micropolishing of bearing journals
-Cleanup of oil and water galleries
-Magnaflux stress releive or cryogenic treatment

Fasteners

-Fitment of head studs
-Full ARP stud kit

-Oversize Valves and upgrade valvetrain
-5-angle valve job
-Oversize bores
-Install stroker kit[cleareneing and replacement of big end bearing if necessary for crank fitment]
-ALL reciprocating assemblies balanced
-Fix ported IM and extrudehone ports for optimum flow at a given RPM
-Cleanup of combustion chamber
-Valve seat, vlave giude replace

If anyone has anything else to add to this list...go ahead. smile.gif

Also...for those of you who just wallet tune...plan on blowing a crapload of money on these. No horsepower gain, for you n00bies thinking about doing this. Bulletproofing just ensures that you're prepared to go beyond what a stupid little turbo/super/nitrous kit can provide for you.

Oh yeah...cyro-freezing some of your parts helps. The process realigns molecules, creating a resistance from thermal breakdown. You typically see people either ceramic coat, cryo-freeze, or both. Though, doing both is drastically pricey, it doesn't really increase the longevity of the part to any signficant degree. So...either cryo-freeze or ceramic coat for thermal protection from wear/tear/breakdown.

For even more detail you can go to Amazon.com and pick up :

"The Step-by-Step guide to Engine Blueprinting, Practical Methods for Racing and Rebuilding" by Rick Voegelin

I picked up my copy along with Supercharged and Maximum Boost.

ARP currently does not have a kit for the beta...


The only person i know to use ARP on his beta was RED (the krazy one) but his was a kit that was created from spare bolts that were left in the warehouse...
