    250 Crossflow build

    Does anyone know if the AU falcon rods/pistons will work as a possible alternative to the 200 rods from spool imports? Cheers

    Hey XPT "Yep with a stock valvetrain, just a decent set of valve springs, decent head gasket & fresh bottom end. Stock CR is perfect for a turbo." Will definitely do the above just wondering what you refering to with Fresh bottom end? Cheers

    Cheers for the info It would be a bit of an expense but am trying to look at building this up reliably so when it revs with the turbo on it wont spit any rods. I can see Slydogs ute was getting a forged bottom end - so I presume better rods & pistons? I could be wrong but thought this would be the way to go. I would like a stronger bottom end so maybe I could shot peen the rods that I have but I don't know if it will work for a turbo application and I may be wasting my money? "there's a LOT of info, and heartache, and reality. " - Sounds like there would be so was thinking do you mean that the upgrades aren't worth doing? Also yes was chasing 300RWHP / 220RWKW NA as then when I put a turbo on it will be even more powerful - but need it reliable Cheers again for the help

    250 Crossflow build

    Gday Everyone I'm new to the forum so wanted to introduce myself Ive been following this forum for awhile and appreciate the knowledge that everyone has dropped with 250 Crossflows that ive read so far. The only problem is I am pretty tech illiterate so cant find the info ive been looking for. I have a 85 XF Fairmont, Alloy head, Carby crossflow all std. I am trying to preplan how I'm gonna get this to 300hp N.Aspirated with further potential for turbo. I am planning on buying another 250 crossflow and stripping it down then rebuilding from the crank up. This way I can just keep mine running for now and build the next motor right until its ready. Wondering is it better to start with crank regrind & 200 rod combo plus the correct pistons - I have read a lot of info on how to do this - but the info I have found is old so I don't know if 200 rods are available from anywhere else apart from ACL - Does anyone have a good set for sale? Otherwise does anyone have a good combination that is interchangeable from other fords say EF Crank with AU longer rods & ? pistons as an example - tried & tested that will be a strong fit so I don't blow my motor to pieces in the long run e.g I will make sure I sonic test the block for cracks to begin with and also more than likely cement aswell so I get this done right from the get go. Any other info would be highly appreciated such as any bearings and grinding work required and also info on doing it yourself. Just thought I would start here & all help moving forward is greatly appreciated.
