z22se SC

Discussion in 'Cylinder Head/Block' started by vocky, July 10, 2017.

  1. I picked this engine up earlier and it is getting a full rebuild with Wiseco 8.9:1 pistons, Eagle rods, new genuine chains and water pump, bearings, gaskets, etc

    I whipped the cylinder head off to check all was still good. I have heard the engine running so knew it was okay, but always worth another check :)

    It was removed from a vx220 and was replaced with a forged z22se engine.


    valves all good and running sweet before removal


    ready for stripping

  6. I collected the rebored block yesterday and started the rebuild :)


    I managed to get the pistons and rods less than 0.5 grams difference in weight, the Eagle rods were all within 0.1 grams of each other.


    pistons and rods fitted


    brand new genuine bearings


    polished crank, craddle and brand new genuine rear main oil seal added

  7. I had the sump cleaned by the machine shop in their engine parts washer


    sump fitted, brand new genuine coolant pump, balancer delete and brand new genuine chain kit fitted

    genuine Saab B207 head gasket, I prefer using them on SC engine builds as it lowers the CR a little bit more

    Brand new Saab B207 genuine cam chain kit fitted - these have the adjustable cam sprockets otherwise are identical to the z22se chain kit.


    I ran out of time to do any more yesterday, not much more to do and it will be finished :)
