Sand got into my Intake !

Hey guys,

Well I went to Little Sahara again with Sandracer1, Jetrench and Rrawtry... The revolt ran great the first couple of days, then it started to misfire a little.. We checked the oil level and it was eating oil like crazy.Also the spark plugs looked terrible ( 2 day old plugs).. The weird thing is there was no smoke coming from the exhaust..Atleast not visible smoke....It kept running, just not as good the whole trip...

Once I got home I removed the Air box and somehow (I assume my fault) by adding a new smooth aluminum Intake pipe and filter. Somehow the Silicon sleeve must have slipped a little or it was pinched etc, and there was tons of sand in my air box.. There was also sand caked all over the Inside of the throttle bodies too... Well obviously It's all jacked up now..... I have the motor out and was going to send it to Mike at redrock and see what he can do..


My question is, How big can I bore it out or is there a Big Bore kit for it.. Mike mentioned there might be one..... Any ideas or Options for repair?

Mike can give you the prices, big bore to 850cc with sleeves, stroker crank to 938cc, billet rods etc.

Don't forget, if you go big bore you will most likely need different injectors and a programable fuel controller.

Re: Sand got into my Intake !

My engine was 798 cc naturally aspirated with a sleeve and ported and polished heads. It used stock injectors. I don't know how it would have run with only a doebeck controller, because I went ViPec. The nice part was when I upgraded to turbo the ECU didn't need replaced again. Better get ready to spend some money if you uograde engine,

Why do live links work intermittantly?

OK, thanks for the Good Info...... Mike at Redrock has my motor now.... He will let me know what my options are once he tears it down, to see what the sand damaged..... Keeping my fingers crossed.....
