Blox Racing LS/VTEC Conversion Kit
Without a doubt, LS/VTEC conversions - commonly referred to as Frankenstein B-series motors – are one of the most popular engine builds and modifications performed to date… and BLOX Racing makes it simple to do. BLOX Racing offers engine builders a complete kit that transforms a non-VTEC Honda B-series engine into its high revving DOHC VTEC counterpart with no machining requirements. Different head gaskets sizes are available. www.bloxracing.com
Darton Sleeve Kit
Darton introduces a new patented M.I.D. Sleeve Kit for the Mitsubishi 4B11. You can now convert the block to a closed deck utilizing the M.I.D. wet sleeve. This allows you to take the stock bore size out to a much larger bore size and still easily handle over 50 pounds of boost at any compression. Since the kit is a wet sleeve design, you can change individual sleeves or all 5 without needing to re-machine the block. Darton also offers installation of the kit with a 15 day turn around.
4G63 2.3L Stroker Kit
The HKS 4G63 2.3L Stroker Kit is designed to increase engine displacement and incorporates technology developed in conjunction with the CT230R time attack car. The 2.3L kit includes a lightweight billet crankshaft, forged connecting rods and a recessed piston design that is compatible with HKS Camshafts. HKS pistons also feature nickel-plated piston heads and specially-treated piston skirts to improve anti-knocking performance and reduced friction.
Race Engineering‘s exclusive XT Series of forged pistons is custom made by Wiseco. Machined from premium, high temp 2618 alloys, we include quality rings, pins and locks. Now available for less popular applications, such as Honda D16A1 (ZC), B21A, B20A5, F22A & B.
