Whats your compression ratio ?
Yes, 1500 crank ist used in 1700 block, with lightened 1500 rods. Piston height like 16V won´t work, because 4,8 mm less stroke with the 1500 crank, so you need 2,4 mm more compression height
CR is 11:1, much more is possible
Oh , thats why it is not supersquare as i thought.I thought you used the 16v crank on the 1500 block with 1,7 pistons along with the heads and reached 1600cc. Good but paintfull job though. Any indication about the HP and what are the benefits of 1500 crank combined with 1700 pistons and heads?
16v crank with 1700 pistons means 1712 cc, but I need 1600 cc, because classes are 1300cc, 1600 cc, 2000 cc,..
Means with an 1700 cc engine you have to race against 2000 cc cars..
HP not enough to beat the 2000 cc cars (20 HP missing), enough to win the 1600 cc class..
Just to add to 'Greek's' questions: Where do you get the rod bolts??
rod bolts were made by special order from a piece of titanium, and not really cheap
