i'am currently working on my engine build
it will be a daily driver with approximately 500hp ,rotrex c38 81
i bought 4032 mahle pistons,10.3:1 compression
After a short conversation with mahle , I've been informed these pistons are rated for 400hp, to late, i know
i said, my powergoal is between 450 and 550 hp,is that a problem?
they said: Your right at the border , make sure you have a good tune on the engine and keep detonation out of it that is the killer.
i dont like that word detonation
would you guys still use the same pistons as you know this?
I would like to know of other people who have built their engine what they have used and if its a daily driver
If you use 2816 pistons do you have,
piston slap when cold?
oil use at cold start?
other people may also give their opinion and also shops/engine builders
