Saab engine build

#1
Neo Brothers have many brand new Saab B207 engines for sale, there is a group buy for these engines on vx220.org.uk site for £714 :eek:

I decided to buy one and quickly stripped it down :D

this one is getting converted to a 2.2 but is staying a turbo :D

The owner has the dbilas turbo kit installed on his speedster, so it's getting CompCams turbo spec camshafts, supertech double valve springs, wiseco 8.9:1 pistons and eagle steel rods, coupled with a standard z22se crankshaft. Plus the usual balancer delete and some head work to the ports.

the saab crank appears to have been modified over the years, there are now eight balance weights (used to be four)
