Ford Duratec info?
I'm tempted to get an engine from a Noble M12 on eBay and was wondering if it's a direct swap for my Rossion.
I work on motorcycle race engines and there's a few things I'd like to do to the 3.0 V6 this year to improve it.
Doesn't the M12/M400/Rossion Duratec have Wiseco pistons? If so, I'm looking to swap them out for some Cosworths made from RR58 (hopefully). Namura, Omega or even CP would also be preferable. I'm a big fan of Cosworth pistons but haven't had good luck with Wiseco (don't tolerate high/low temps as good) or JE (heavy and they don't disperse oil as well) unfortunately. We've seen Wiseco's fail spectacularly and I know my Rossion is already on it's second engine.
I'd also like to REM and cryo treat some of the internals, maybe even DLC coat a couple things too. The REM helps a lot with friction. They use small beads that polish the surface to a mirror like finish and there's a noticeable difference when turning the engine over with your hand.
