It does require a Max E Tork tune to work properly. As an extra line of defense, we installed bronze coolant passage liners into each cylinder head. Also, to make the pistons tougher for this turbocharged application, we coated the domes with a thermal barrier ceramic coating and the skirts with a dry film lubricant coating. In our opinion, these early 6. Again, the benefits of a stud are the same here as in the bottom end. I am confident that our mission to build the most durable, smoothest running, and most efficient 6. The kit includes stainless braided Teflon hoses, proper fittings and a brand new oil cooler.
Quality pistons are, of course, another significant component. Caution about Oversized Engine Boring When we build our 6. Here at Sinister Diesel, we take all the guesswork out of ordering parts to complete some of the most common maintenance projects and those with the longest parts lists. This combination allows for a hotter explosion that pushes the piston down with more force, creating more usable power. Hopefully, the component photos on the next page help to demonstrate the efficiency advantages gained by this process — it looks even better in real life.
Another of the more common problems with both the 6. Down the road, Ted will be giving us some feedback about the engine and how it performs. Tests are performed at different valve lifts. Throughout the production of the 6. With diesel engines, most of your performance comes from the amount of fuel and air that goes into the engine. Then we had every part that has airflow — either into or out of the engine — extrusion honed by Kennametal Extrude Hone.
It's one that makes a noticeable difference in drivability and power, but its biggest gain is showing noticeably lower exhaust temperature and gains in fuel mileage. Next, we installed our own reconditioned connecting rods. By removing weight from the crankshaft we were able to take the unbalanced condition of the rotating assembly down to less than 0. We started improving our airflow by gasket matching the intake and exhaust ports of the intake and the manifolds. We make an extremely heavy duty wrist pin bushing for the 6. When building an engine based on an early 6.
I will try to share that information with you. The Braided Teflon lines are an aircraft quality part, so once you install them they get rid of the leaky oil cooler line problem for good. All valve face protrusions the distance from the valve face to the flat cylinder head surface and valve stem heights were set within the tightest of tolerances. The kit will come with everything you need for the installation, as well as step by step instructions to walk you through the install process. It is physically possible to bore an early 6.
New aftermarket blocks, produced in China, are also available. We are trying to keep the air as cool and as dense as possible while passing through the turbo and intake manifold and on into the combustion chamber. When a crack-free block is located, we feel that the best way to combat cracks from developing is to install a stud and girdle kit. The factory bushing is a relatively soft material that requires being bored to the proper dimension, in most areas its very difficult to find a pin boring machine. In our application and in general, the use of a stud converts the typical twisting force on the bolt hole to more of a stretching force on the stud itself. The result is a naturally smart porting job. This process reduces restrictions and leaves the ports highly polished.
Pistons are available only in 21. Sadly, we have made many trips to the local scrap yard with loads of scrap blocks to prove it. My thanks to Ted, he allowed me to use my imagination and to utilize some relatively new and exciting technologies to achieve our goals. The stud girdle kit installed utilizing the six outer main bolt holes where cracks are a common problem. The pistons were taken to within one-half gram of one another as were the connecting rods on both the small end and big end. Smoothness It is a well known fact that the smoother an engine runs the longer lasting and more efficient it will be.
The squaring of the deck surfaces and the setting of the rod lengths that I discussed earlier, enabled us to achieve a piston protrusion the distance the pistons sit below the deck surface at top dead center within 0. We Have A 96 Gmc 1500 4wd 6 5l Turbo Diesel The Truck E Without 6 5 liter civilian h 1 or military hmmwv gm 1982 2000 6 2 5l diesel performance parts zexel denso pumps repair kits for conventional injection stanadyne 6 5 electronic injection pump gm 1982 2000 6 2 5 diesel fuel injection pumps stanadyne. The cylinder heads were the final components addressed in making the engine as durable as possible. Ultimately, the block ended up 0. For this project, we chose to use a crack-free and seasoned 1990 6. I am hoping that the combination of our intimate knowledge of these engines, a lot of hard work, and some advanced technology have enabled us to produce a truly remarkable replacement engine for his truck.
This is where the fuel enters the engine and we want this area to be as hot as possible so that the fuel will burn faster and more completely. In this photo, one of the cracks is highlighted and enlarged. It may surprise some of you that we decided to use an earlier 6. For me, these are buyer beware: they are still unproven in long-term, real-world conditions. . This focus on the details assured us that the compression would not vary much from cylinder to cylinder.
Airflow Efficiency Simplistically, all engines can be viewed as air pumps. This machine enables you to test the airflow volume and air velocity as it travels through the intake and exhaust ports of the cylinder heads. We chose to use 1998 6. That is, we used parts and procedures with proven track records of reliability in our custom built engines over the years. On the exhaust side, our biggest gain was a 15% increase in volume and a 26% increase in velocity at.
