Not much to report as I'm still waiting on pistons, sleeve, rods, cams and valves... But bought these light weight alloy pulleys...

Image

So the question is are they as light as they say..

Well 1st up was the alternator pulley.. With the old one off we weighed them...

Image

So at 163g what was the light one..

Image

A tidy 56g..

We promptly fitted it to the alternator

Image

Next up the water pump pulley

Image

And then the alloy one..

Image

Again promptly fitted ready to assemble one the engine goes back together

Image

Last up the crank pulley weighing in at 1703g..

Image

With the alloy one coming in at 703g giving a 1kg saving!

Image

We were also told the sleeves are now in production.. Can't wait

Sorry I have not been on here for a while and your right the OEM Pulleys are Harmonically Balanced however we have had the Crank, Pistons, Rods, Bolts, Clutch and pulleys all balanced by Anderson Race Engines so I can assure you there will be no issues removing the OEM Pulleys.....

Anyways lot has happened over the last few months... here goes!!

We have fitted the new liners which are 87mm making this swift a 1974cc

Image

Anyway a couple of pics of the crank which has been wedged and lightened, rods, pistons, fly and pulleys all balanced together and all the parts for the build starting to come together...

Image
Image

New parts for the head started to arrive...

So here we have double valve springs, 33mm inlet and 28mm exhaust valves from ferrea...
Image

the 13.5mm lift cams OEM are 8mm
Image

Carbon Bonnet fitted with graphics added to match the painted bonnet
Image

More weight reduction going on..
Image

Valve Seats cut for big valves
Image

dropped the block off so the combustion chamber CC can be worked out and re profiled. Took a picture or two of the head which has still got a way to go but is getting there...

Here you can see the machining to allow the 13.5mm cams to fit
Image
Image
Image

Then some porting has started..

Image
Image
Image
Image

Still a lot to do but the head will be back this side of xmas so I can get it built. Once built it will be run in and mapped on Anderson's Engine Dyno to be sure the timing chain can cope with the extra forced caused by the big cams. We will partially strip and inspect some components before the engine goes back in the car..

Oh and the 1.3 made 146bhp up from 90bhp so thats a 62% increase in power and to be fair if the customer paid for custom rods we could have easily made 160bhp as it was making max power and torque at the redline of 7400rpm. If we could have reved to 8500-9000rpm would would have seen more for sure.
