2.4 16V Piston Options?

Recommended Posts

Just canvassing for opinion here, any thoughts on pistons for a 2.4 16v ( frontera block cut down senator head )

What are the best options before going to full forged aftermarket items

If you look on german ebay they advertise mercedes pistons for cih 16v.

cheap price for standard pistons. Think i put opel cih in search

Cheers folks,

 

Andy - had a look at those on ebay.de, only confusion was the bore but I'm 99% sure that theyve got their listing wrong as KS only list a 96.5mm piston not a 97.5 (which would be pushing a CIH bore a bit far I'd think?)

 

Will get my machine shop to find out if they can get the relevant KS part, pretty sure they can.

 

H-400, it would be nice to put forged pistons in it but I'm pretty sure the budget won't stretch to it. Will check just in case!

 

cheers

Mine were sourced from the States at about 500 for the set from memory, custom made.

Right, well have got a set of the mercedes pistons that are touted as being the thing for the job and they don't look much good to me ! The comp height is taller (last thing you want on a big bore CIH!) and  the gudgeon pin considerably bigger.

 

I think Steve you are probably right!! Looks like custom forged ones! Could you tell me where you got yours from?

Next question!......am I being stupid or can I use forged senator 24v pistons? Nobody used to list them but now I see that Wossner list them from stock, and up to 96.5mm bore........

You can but it will put your engine back to 2.0l instead of 2.4l which it was when Andy bilt it .

Little update, looking at exchange rates and various complications with existing engine parts, it's actually going to be cheaper to get a new engine built at Risse and sell the existing parts, so that's the new plan!

Bloody hell that expensive.

Sticking with eight valves then.
