"new" he said - and then "new turbo" but i didnt ask any more than that

Sounds more like new turbos not new engines, but see if you can find out more

Well guys I thought I'd continue in this thread because I mentioned it earlier in the piece.

The astina has been resusitated with the help of a BPD (GTR Familia) Head, Block and Intake Manifold. I've just finished swapping the goods from block to block and fitted it into the astina. While everything was out I had the plenum polished up for me too. Love the way it came up. I will be fitting the original "Turbo intercooler" sticker back on it. Ford had to order it from Japan for me. It's still gunna be about 4 weeks. :lol:

Anyway, here's some pics.

GTR block is on the stand (cam covers already swapped)


Engine in, still has to be tidied up though.


Close up of the plenum


Will hopefully be looking at 200Hp at the wheels when tuned and running the microtech. For now it will just be on stock GTX ecu....will just wait and see how the engine is going to go.

MMMM Very good it is.
Did you notice an difference in the head between the GTX and GTR. I know about
the valves and the hollow cams anything else worthy of mention.

Nope, didn't notice a differnce in the heads...even had the same numbers stamped on the side.

As for the hollow cams, the cams on the GTX engine I took out were hollow too, so I'm not sure if the GTR ones are hollower or not. :? But visually, they looked the same. I forgot to look for markings or stamps to say the were GTR spec. I'll have to have a look at the manuals to see if there is an identification mark to say what is what.

Only other thing that I know of that was different was in plenums.

GTX


GTR
