3g B20A build
Ive started this thread as a bit of a record of what I'm doing.
First off...Huge thanks to my wife for letting me do this. I hope it all runs when I'm finished otherwise I'll be in strife.
The plan is to turbo the gen 3. Aiming for a reliable daily driven 150kW atw.
I'll be posting up bits and pieces as i go, keeping in mind this is a LONG term project....
I've acquired a built short block with slightly lower compression pistons. Forged rods, ARP blots, ACL bearings, Forged pistons. Plus a head and a 5 speed Quaife LSD transmission. Courtesy of Flipmods.
This is my workshop

Mounting the engine to the stand
block thread depth. (~30mm)
Add the length of the engine stand boss, to the thread depth and that is the bolt length you are chasing.
You need 3off M12x1.25 bolts. The 4th can be a cheaper easier to get M12 course thread or maybe 7/16" for all the non metric people. This bolt will need to be longer to go through the lower rear mounting hole on the block. The boss on the engine block for this location is 50mm thick.
Bolts I've used are:
3 off M12x1.25 100mm long
1 off M12x1.75 140mm long with nut
The boss on my engine stand is 70mm long.
