Hello from ice-cold-freezing-russia! I've got 156 sportwagon '05
with 1.8 TS euro 3 engine (AR32205
i've got weird situation with engine pistons. I found out that previous owner put pistons (dia 82.5 and height 45 mm) from some russian car that has fiat roots (Lada Priora).
I want to overbore cylinder to 83.0 mm and I'm looking for pistons to fit in.
Will 2.0 TS standart pistons fit in? I can't find any information on stock piston height for AR 32205.
According to FederalMogul catalogue AR 32201 (1.8 euro 2) and AR 32205 (1.8 euro 3) has the same height of 60 mm
(partnumber for Nural STD piston is 87-118000-00
). Is it true?
Also the same FederalMogul catalogue:
— AR 32301 (2.0 euro 2) piston height 56.00 mm
— AR 32310 (2.0 euro 3) piston height 51.30 mm
1) Is piston height plays any role?
2) What pistons should I take to bolton fit my overbored 1.8 TS to 83.00 mm?
