The DLC coated bucket is shown on the top vs the standard uncoated one on the bottom. Don’t mix these up or very bad things will happen!
Here are our heads ready to install!
New OEM intake valves and OEM larger exhaust valves from a Titan truck grace the combustion chamber.
Now our blocks was prepared for assembly. We had machined the block boring it 0.50 mm oversize to clean up the bores with a torque plate and platue honed the cylinder walls to prepare them for low tension piston rings. We also used high strength APR studs and aligned honed the main bores to fix any distortion that the higher torque of the studs might cause. We then installed the studs and the King main bearings.
We also installed the piston cooler oil squirters next.
Now our block was ready for installing the bed plate and the crank.
