Did you guys consider gutting that block for a darton mid type installation?
Give that we want to stay with 100mm bore, sleeves of any kind would be a huge cost and unreliability problem. Can be done in a way that lasts but it’s a huge learning curve for this block and even in the end it’ll be way, way more expensive that Nikasil plating.
Um actually the darton mid design was really a solution to open deck block related issues.
Since we don’t have any of those issues at our cylinder pressure levels, aren’t those sleeves then just an expensive solution to a non-problem, for us? We just need to be able to run modern pistons, everything else works as is.

Nope, because the manual transmissions can’t hold it. That’s why we are going with more rpms not more boost.

An engine assembly video from a couple weeks ago:



The breakaway torque of the assembled short block ended at 9 lbf-ft.

Accessories are very heavy so as always it depends. If you include all the accessories and emissions gear, it must be close to 600 lbs. based on shipping weights? The long block isn't nearly as heavy but I don't have a number for you.

264 kg = 582 lbs. These are with all the accessories, which are very heavy.

The engine external dimensions are not too far from BBC, the bore spacing is 122mm. Deck height isn't too long, but then the four-valve heads make it look like a tall deck block from the external dimensions. It's a small miracle that the engine could be designed to be low enough to fit under the 928 hoodline.

Those look pretty low in the chassis. Are you running a scavenge pump on the drains?

As far as the gaskets, most manufacturers have moved away from paper and cork gaskets and use either a variation of silicone and a steel shim, or clean up everything and run no gaskets and just some variation of Three Bond/GM Sealer. As you described in the video, it seals very well and requires a few taps with a rubber mallet to separate the two parts.

Yes, no other way to fit them.
