Yeah, I'm probably going this route as well. I already have the awd pistons. just need to find a good rod that will work with them. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Same here, Ian is shipping mine out today. New rings and rods shortly.

Re: motor is done... (1.BillyT)

Several companies make rods for the 20mm wrist pin for AWD/AEB pistons. But the majority of people have the AWW and AWP 19 mm setup. Hence why I'm using AWD pistons. Not saying/starting anything but I'm suprised you didn't know that? I know you were pusing a full stock setup, but I think this will be the hot ticket. And we'll see what OEM pistons can do. I know Don's pistons were heavier than stock. Can you do a weight comparison with your new pistons and rods compared to stock?

Don R might know the definitive answer on this. hopefully he can say one way or the other.

I already asked him. He says it looks like it would work and if not, machine the pistons. Apparently Pauter has instructions on their site how to do it.

My Eurospec rods fit my AMU pistons.

Assembled in the block? Think the lower compression ratio of the pitson allows this if the answer to previous question is yes?

assembled and dynoed at 464hp so far. If anything a lower compression ratio would mean a deeper dish thus making interference worse..but they fit no problem- I think the problem Steve had is attributable to the Pauter rods- they are a bit bulkier than others..but no big deal a few minutes with a dies grinder and a balance sounds like it would fix the problem.

That 464 is crank, correct? What rpm is peak torque at?

So just under 350 peak crank torque at as low as 5300. Reason I'm asking as I'm sure you know is the bent Eurospec rod issue. You obviously have tuning under control which isn't an option (currently).

Re: (CEL-4-LIFE)

According to Marco at SEM, AWD pistons work all day long with no modifications with the same Pauter rods that Don is using. Now there are different versions of Pauter's that I've seen comparison pics of. But it can be done with off the shelf parts. And that's what I'm going to do.
If it doesn't work when it comes time, I'll order up some pistons too. lol
