Btw. it you decide to get new rods I can give you the prod. number on my Pauters.

With slight modifications to length and small end thickness on those I think you will get the right ones.

Hi mate! Can you still give me the prod. number on your Pauters please? 

Thankssss

Long time ago, 10 years ;-). Still working on it.. busy, house, shed, business but perfectionated it in the last years. Maybe some pics soon.

Hi Jonathan! Hopefully you can shed some light on your project, and thus, on my project as well! So, I'm trying to build a 2.2L with 92mm crank from a 2.1td and 87mm bore with forged rods and pistons!

However, I just found out that the rods for the 2.1 td crank are 26.xx mm, compared to the 24.xx mm rods from s16/gti6, they're 2mm wider! Meaning there's way to much play in the rods to just intall it like this!
Also, I'm not sure what to do! I think I'll be using 158mm custom forged rods with 26mm big end and custom pistons, 3mm shorter than normal gti6 pistons in order to compensate for the extra 3mm stroke!

 

What do you suggest? I'd love to hear from you guys that are more experiencied in the matter!

Thats exactly it.

 

Be VERY careful to do a dry build and confirm valve clearance and compression ratio unless measured and drawn highly accurately and made to a custom order, every piston will need some machining.

Hi Welsh! Think you could most probably help me! I've sent you a PM on facebook! It'd be awesome if you could shed some light regarding the matter of the 2.2 build I think you have/had! I'm really wondering regarding the rods width on big end! As I said, think I'll use normal 158mm forged gti6 rods with a custom made 3mm short piston! Evene if the piston rings have to be installed after installing the pins! Cuz i guess that decreasing piston height 3mm, the oil control ring will start to enter the realm of the gudgeon pin!

What do you thinK I should do?

Rings are not a problem, my engine uses an off the shelf omega  high conpression cast piston for the GM  2.0 engine, modified to suit.

 

Off the shelf gti6 rod will not work as the crank is wider like you found.

 

All this is in my thread btw.

Where can I find your thread exactly? That'd be awesome to read I bet! Can you post the link please?

What rods are you using then? This is what's bugging me now, as I dont have any other solution rather than custom rods!

You replied to it on the 306gti6 forum!

 

My rods are custom.

Oooooh! Got it! I'm still catching up on some threads! 205 4X4 T16 and your ZX! Haven't finished reading it! So what brand are your rods?

Hi mate! Just finished reading your Thread! What a fantastic piece of work!!!

Only question that remains is rods and pistons!

Compression cast piston for the GM 2.0 engine, modified to suit on the piston side right?

Rods wise, what brand did you use? You had them custom made to what spec? 26.xx mm wide but what height, center to center? 158mm? 155? or 152?, really wondering here!!! :o

custom rods, length to suit the pistons I used, big end width to suit the crank.

 

 

you need to find whatever piston suits your needs and have a conrod made to suit,  a few have used peugeot pistons, honda pistons and GM pistons, and of course custom pistons made to exact specification.

If you you have a hard time finding 26mm wide rods the 96mm stroke crank from a 2.2 HDI has 24mm crankpins.

Which in turn would require custom rods to suit the piston you choose to use.

 

Easy to find rods to the specific width, you have them made to spec,   the difference in price is not huge, though lead times can be a little long.

I'd just buy new, custom rods too. After you've considered essential resizing of the big ends and quality new rods bolts, for your 2nd hand rods, the cost of new rods is not that bad.

You can also go with off the shelf forged rods and modified pistons :

Hi welsh!

 

Not exactly sure what pistons to use! I wanna take it a little higher, but I still want to use pump gas (98 octane), not race fuel, so probably around 12.0 to 12.5 I'd say, so I can keep using pump gas.

 

Will have rods custom-made to fit the 26.xx mm journals, no doubt there! I'll have to go forward and see the best option regarding pistons!

Would like to use off-the-shelf forged pistons for Peugeot and use like a 0.76mm cometic gasket for maximum squish! So maybe get the rods custom-made to fit an off-the-shelf 20/22mm gudgeon pin piston! 

 

What do you say Welsh?

Hey mate! Yeah, I'm definitely not using a 96mm crank mate! I wanna try and keep the build as simple as possible! 92mm crank will be more than plenty for what I'm after! Also, I already would the 92mm crank and she's in mint condition! Thanks anyway mate!!!

Do you recommend any specific brand on con rods that will make them to spec? Many thanks!

Hey Petert! Most definitely that's what I'll do! Custom con rods made to work with a thin cometic gasket, so I have a nice squish band, and made to work with off-the-shelf pistons! My only problem is that off-the-shelf pistons are not made to work with 92mm cranks, so the squish band will decrease, leading to lower engine efficiency - not cool - and thus, fewer horsies.

My solution would be machining some mm's off the top of the piston domes to take the compression down a bit, otherwise, to have a nice compression, squish band will not be in the correct range cuz I'll be forced to make shorter rods to compensate for the longer stroke! 

 

Do you guys agree with me? Or what do you say? Many thanks!

Yeah, I've seen that thread! I'm not to keen on taking a dremmel to my block for the crank to clear tho... Would like to make something simpler!!

87 x 92 will need a dished piston, such Honda K20 turbo. Then you will have zero squish with a custom rod. A -7.7cc dish gives approx. 10.7:1. Part number CP SC70402

Meaning that with 87x92mm the piston has to be dished? it can't be domed? to have a 12.0 CR I would probably need a flat piston only with the valve cutouts right?

What do you mean by "zero squish"? The flat part of the piston coming up to the block?

Many thanks
