Do you feel that the 2.0 (Fusion/TS) block is superior to the 2.3 RS block with an aftermarket deck support/brace?
I think he is saying that for overall strength and resistance to cracking...the fusion 2.0 is better.Do you feel that the 2.0 (Fusion/TS) block is superior to the 2.3 RS block with an aftermarket deck support/brace?
Will you choose to build your 2.3 block, instead of the 2nd generation 2.0 block?f-n A...let's do this!
so my offer still stands...
you build my 2.3 long block and create a thread on here for progress updates = priceless
curious though...how much heavier is the 2.0 short block compared to the 2.3?
yup! with darton sleeves or something similar (cylinder support system)Will you choose to build your 2.3 block, instead of the 2nd generation 2.0 block?
I've had way less black soot on the back of my car after switching to the V2 breather plate. Guessing that it does a better job than the V1 breather plate due to the labyrinth, so less junk on the intake valves but more junk back in the oil.Am I becoming a Moutune fanboy? 🤔 I had a Radium breather plate and catch can and while the can caught something (maybe a half can per oil change cycle, or 1-2dl per 5’000km) I still have some fair amount of deposit on the intake valves. I’m trying the Mountune “thick” breather this time.
One thing is the MT plate uses the stock PCV while the Radium plate comes with its own. The stock PCV (new or used) seems to leak a bit of pressure when blowing backward. Not sure this is significant but it definitely leaks a little, while the Radium PCV don’t.
I’ve seen on YouTube some of those MT breathers being all oily around the pipe connection, so I helped mine with a better o-ring (Viton) and some RTV. Hopefully it will stay dry.
