    Very interesting spec, particularly the piston (and thus engine size) and valves.... do you have targets in mind? have they been run in other cars before?

    Do the Nobles and Rossions use a stock Ford head gasket?

    Target is to hit 550 which I should be able to achieve.
    I may dyno and see if I can get over 600 but will not have it tuned for that.
    As for cars there are several cars out there is my understanding with similar engine.
    The engine is using a stock gasket design - I am using fel-pro gaskets.

    That is very interesting, not seen any engines in UK with larger valves and oversize Pistons.

    i run upgraded stock size valves and Pistons and have over 700bhp & I see close to 500bhp on low boost 0.6bar.... so I'd expect you will easily make your targets on a low boost.
    Did your garage source the parts or did you go to a tuner?

    The research on what to do was/is a joint effort between my mechanic and myself. During the rebuilt I have also gotten a lot of great input and changed a few things from the ECU wiring tuner person he is great and a craftsman in the field.

    Plan to have an update soon, the car is currently in the exhaust shop getting a new exhaust built.

    The turbos that I got built are slightly larger than the existing turbos, this is causing a few issues. Front side turbo had be rotated 180 degrees to fit, and the back turbo sits very close to the frame now. Neither are deal breakers but the front turbo rotation leads to a completely different way of running the exhaust piping around and than under the car. The Turbo that is next to frame will require some minor frame work to make sure that it does not rub the frame.

    Do our engines have free standing cylinder liners?

    No. They are cast in and would have to be machined out.

    Only reason I ask is because at what point are the blocks safe to bore or stroke. I know the Ecoboost engines have free standing cylinders to save weight. But when hp is bumped up they remove the stock liners an install sleeves. Like these

    Thanks that's what I was looking for. That's also a good thing for increased power levels
