Sure that's not the first time the HG has gone on #247!

I'd definitely consider getting the pistons forged, with uprated Cosworth stopper HG & ARP head-studs.

Worth removing the secondary air pump, oil pump & depending on mileage maybe a clutch.

Think it cost me about £5000. I had my block pinned too!

I ended up spending about £8k... but my project grew slightly once it was in bits and I got a bit carried away with "toys" for it :laugh:

 

To get it done properly with forged pistons, Cosworth Head bolts, air pump removal, Tumbler valve removal and a bigger oil pump you should be looking at around £5k for a future-proof engine :smile:

 

Remember and factor in a re-map too if you remove the TGR and air pump... as it throws up a malfunction light
