Hi everyone
As I have to rebiuld my block, I am thinking of putting 1800 pistons in my 2ltr to up the compression.
I am doing this on a low budget so am looking for used ones.
Email me directly.
 
Cheers for now,
Mark

MarK Better check this out, Ove hear on this side of the pond the 1800 and 2 liter Pistonis are the same Smiley


--------------------------------------------------------------------

ok good idea but will 1800 pistons fit in a 2000 because the diameter of the
cylinder maybe bigger

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Bore is the same - 84.0mm.  Easy way to up compression ratio is to use 1800 or 1600 pistons in a 2 litre - BUT pistons are getting very scarce now at reasonable prices.

european spec 1800's ran a much higher compression (9.8:1 if I remember right), as far as I can see from the tech data this was partially down to the design of piston used

You might find 1600 pistons easier to find not such high compression as 1800 but higher than flat top 2000 you maybe don't want to go too high with modern crap petrol!

Hi mark i've got four 1800 pistons there second hand if that's ok let me
know if you want them you can email me on bagospuds@hotmail.com

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for the offer, I am going to put 1600 pistons in now for 10:1 CR.
