Ya, the zero interference issue only comes into play if you break a timing belt.

I'm sure you are right about being able to get the pistons at a later date even if I'm not around. They will just charge you $210 more than I am charging.

The clevite bearings for the ej22 are the same as ours you just have to order extra sets. The rings are included with the pistons. As part of the design for high boost we are using appropriate chromed stainless compression rings and the pistons are gas ported. Gas porting is what makes the rings actually seal despite extremely high cyllinder pressures.

ok... well if you can find a rough figure for me please let me know so I can set the money aside... I know how much I can get headstrong for a product and then decide to blow my money on say...a new suspension and brakes

Michael,
Have you confirmed that the ej22's main bearings also work with the eg33? I know the ej22's rod bearings work.
Thanks.

I haven't installed them yet but I did check all the fsm specs for both and yes if you get 2 sets then you have all the bearings you need. Just pay attention to what bearings go where--they are not all the same size.

Well, maybe Uncle Sam will be nice and give back a good amount of the money he's been sapping out of my paycheck. Why do government employees pay taxes anyway? That's like paying myself to work?

We don't have a price on the cam sets yet.
No you don't send me the heads. They don't require any special machine work.
Yes the pistons come fitted with 9310 tool steel pins
