Two Mini Coopers!
I am getting ready to turbo my RS and want to know if anyone has heard of any problems with weak pistons... or anything else I should know about before I go through with this...
The 5k Cobb block is their stage 3 2.5L motor. Not the 2.2L block.zoinkssooby said:the $5,000 cobb block you speak of is 22b based replica if i'm not mistaken. i also just posted in another forum about the 4eat. it is very sensitive to burn-outs because of it being linked to the AWD. the thing about that is that when you burn out your AWD system goes into convulsions because it can't figure out what to do and that stress will run into your tranny like a freight train.
Huh? I just talked to them yesterday and they said "No gots..." Are you sure? I must be talking to the wrong people!Graham said:I also called COBB, though they told me they DO sell pistons and what not, for $700 a set (remember these are the JE's) with any compression ratio I want.
Very tempting, but last time I blew all my money I got laid off. I am putting this into savings for now. When I get caught up, I will turbo my 2.5 and then we can have some FUN. :devil:Graham said:So, James, I DARE you to take the TURBO CHALLENGE!!!!!
i said 22b "based" as in it is modeled after the some design ideas they used(improved oil and coolant flow passages, fully closed and wire ringed cylinder deck)The 5k Cobb block is their stage 3 2.5L motor. Not the 2.2L block.
