Crankshafts are usually always forged for strength. Connecting Rods and pistons are usually always cast in normal consumer vehicles. Race and High Performance vehicles have very exacting designs and are usually built differently.
I wouldn't recommend it. Why turbocharge? Because you're looking for more horsepower than you can get out of the engine any other way. But remember, forcing HP means stressing the engine. If you're looking to get good life out of the engine you need to overbuild it.Let's throw out a number: You want 120hp out of your engine--double what a VW engine normally makes. You could get it out of a 1600cc engine, but you'd have to use a forged crank, forged pistons, and so on if you wanted a reliable engine. Or you could use 94mm pistons, stroke the engine a little, still use the forged crank...by the time you're done you've got a more reliable engine if you start by building a bigger engine in the first place.
There's no such thing as an "L7" engine
it turns the pistons causing the combustion neceserie to run the vehical
The engine will not run, possibly damaging valves and pistons.
Remove the engine, place on an engine stand. Remove heads, oil pan, pistons, main caps and remove the crank.Remove the engine, place on an engine stand. Remove heads, oil pan, pistons, main caps and remove the crank.
305 at the crank for camaro and trans am and 345 for the corvette
It is a high performance 396 Chevy engine. It had 375hp, Holley 800, Mechanical Cam / Lifters (500 lift, 316 Duration), Square Port Heads, 11:1 Compression, 4 Bolt Mains, Forged Tuftrided Crank, Forged Pistons, 4.126 x 3.76 Bore & Stroke.
Block, crank, pistons, and valves. Those are the main parts that cost the most to fix.
1. Pistons 2.Cam shaft 3. Crank shaft 4. Engine walls
You know that shaft that the pistons are connected to in the engine? Yeah, that's a crankcase.
