I found the diydrones website a while ago and it inspired me a lot. I'm gathering stuff to build robots.
I'm also working on a european robotics project which is pretty awesome (nifti project). Le ...

I also had the plan to turn a 924 into a robot, but not the robot you describe.
I want to build an autonomous car.

you're into robotics apparently?

Hope you dont plan on tracking the car with those calipers.
The temp will destroy that coating.....

Or, not.

Hey all,

I've got a few more questions about my engine build.. It's been a slow process to say the least.

-Can I do the honing myself? I've seen some tools that you can attach to a drill to do ...

If you can make it better for less money, you've got a market. So see it as a good thing.
Or am I thinking too Chinese this way?

So if the light went on, you should have seen it coming at the pressure gauge.

I don't think you're looking at a pressure gauge in the situation you mentioned but I am interested in the pressure ...

i'm 100% sure they have electronic ignition. My 81 had it too. 80 was the limbo year if I'm not mistaking.

Ok haven't found that specific one I guess... but I see 45mm housing bore as a downside, while you probably see it as an advantage for the stroking, am I right?

No, if we are talking about the same rods, the bigend bore is 48.00mm and the pin (journal) diameter is 45.00.
All the other specs are exactly the same as you mentioned.

edit: still, I have to tha ...

The weight of the rods is spread indeed, but I only saw moments ago that the weight difference is max. 8gram, so in the piston/rod combo, stock maximum of 14+8 = 22 gram is allowed. I read it as more ...

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying there's a heap of pistons and rods out there for our application, just that it does not have to be a brand-combo. But I read the starting post again, and you've al ...

Woops. You're totally right about the centerline when grinding the crank.

And I didn't mention custom pistons... because that's a way that's not appealing to me. Like I said before, the off-the-she ...

The Neon/Stratus/PT Cruiser 2.0/2.4L motrs came in SOHC and DOHC versions. Both are 16-valve heads and share bore spacing with the earlier 2.2/2.5L motors.

The bore spacing is similar to the 924's ...

Actually my estimates were unfair. I calculated heavy modifications to the crankshaft (extreme milling etc.) which could kick the performance up a notch. Also I reckon, whether it will be realizable o ...

Haven't read the whole thread but I'm interested.

I've got access to a grinding machine which can grind offset, and we've inquired nitriding which was a fraction of the quoted 170... it would be ab ...
