BEST we start over was all i could say ,  ::) Owen had a friend build his stroker and had used all the cool parts ,but things did not go to plan ,

The new pistons were damaged because the block was not as clean as it should have been , so the bottom end needed to be rebuilt from scratch with new pistons and a re-bore

specs , for the build

pistons forged sps 90+mm
crank 83mm stroke kemeri
rods 138mm
head to be built by Les and me , with 46mm inlets full race port and will be a P90
comp will be 10.5
induction is EFI hardwere itb
exh will be SW race pipes and 3in magaflow


this is the block as it is today pics to come as it get built and there will be a dyno vid as we tune the ECU

This will be a killer engine. The way it should have been all along. Don't worry Owen, it's in good hands now!

Pete, I notice you guys paint the inside of the blocks you build. Would I be correct that they are de burred first given clearance for rods etc and the paint is high temperature stuff

Hey Pete,


How does the Kameari crank compare to your your prepped RB30 crank? Is it full counter weight?
What size cam is this thing going to run, same as mine i'm guessing?

The crank is a stock LD28 thing by the look off it ,  with this engine we will run 2 cams on the dyno and see what it likes , as it will spend all its time on the road ,

Owen, saw your engine yesterday , Peter tells me your block has a special quality for a big bore. Well done with that one. Also saw the 3.5lt block and crank. The work that these guys do is amazing. To get that crank to fit inside with the clearances . They have to grind out the oil line in the block and rebore another one! Cutting edge stuff. Way ahead of other engine builders, they wouldn't touch that stuff. If you want the Best Engine. Take it to Peter and Les.
  They relly know the craft. I just want one.( but you already have one) yer another one! Bigger and better.
Cheers guys ,great work.

Yeah It can go out to 91mm!  Very lucky I guess. The guy at the machine shop that done first bore out to 89.5 was freaking out, wait till I tell him it can go out this far. 8)

Did you see the water mod? that things unreal, it's a work art!

FYI - last year Nissan finally discontinued the LD28 cranks and Kameari will no longer stock these once they have sold their stock. I believe Kameari will continue to make their full counter weighted versions of the LD28 crank - just no more stock cranks that they used to get directly from Nissan.
