    Crank bearing clearances for N9TE

    V-M - thanks for the reply, sorry for taking so long to give you a shout out...
  2. Hi, I am looking to build up an N9TE engine that previously had a cracked head. We had the crank measured and these are the readings that were taken (inches): 2.2347 (56.7614 mm) 2.2348 (56.7639 mm) 2.2348 (56.7639 mm) 2.2346 (56.7588 mm) 2.2348 (56.7639 mm) Here are the main bearing tolerances from the N9TE engine manual: If I am planning to build an engine with custom turbo, injectors, intercooler, ECU, etc. and could make upwards of 250 hp or more, what would be the recommendation with regard to the clearances for the main bearings? Do I need bearings that bring it back to stock clearances, or what is the best approach here? Thanks for any and all help!

    N9TE Custom Piston Group Buy?

    Hi All , e-mailed Arias, they came back with $175 for each piston with hardware ($700 for the set). I also e-mailed the person in Maine with the wagon - it was about $130 for each piston 16 years ago from Arias...

    N9TE Custom Piston Group Buy?

    Rabin, V-M, Thanks for the information, will pass that along to my brother to see what he thinks about going the SAAB/Volvo route... I see a Turbo wagon was just posted to Craigslist in Falmouth, ME with Arias forged pistons. Will give them a call to see what the going rate for pistons is from them these days. Will follow up with additional info... Prices I was quoting were US $, as

    N9TE Custom Piston Group Buy?

    Hi - that price was just for the parts from JE... My brother just got another quote from Mahle, $250/piston with a minimum order of 8. I'll give him another call to see what overbore size they were using.

    N9TE Custom Piston Group Buy?

    Hi Apologies for not posting back to the thread, but FINALLY got word back from the machine shop. They quoted $750 USD for the forged pistons, ring pack and pins (using JE). Is this reasonable for this engine? Was hoping for something in the $500 range since this is a 4 cylinder, not an 8!
  7. Hi All, I am still looking in to rebuilding an engine out of an '87 505 Turbo parts car I have. Seems I would need to get oversized pistons, so the machine shop is looking in to the pricing for .020 over pistons and a decent ring pack to go with. Just thought I would throw this out there to see if there's any interest in a possible group buy... I should have pricing and other details tomorrow, so I'll pass those along as I get them. Cheers, Jonathan
  8. All that chrome trip is really going to pop against that beautiful dark blue paint! Congratulations on a VERY significant milestone!

    Wanted : 1987 505 turbo intake tube

    This is what you are looking for?
  10. Rabin - thanks for the further info, good to know!
  11. Bill - Thanks for your help, I must have read the original post in a hurry, and I thought the P code was the Torsen...
  12. Hi, was looking at this old thread which supplies the differential codes, and the P code means the car is equipped with a Torsen differential. I searched through the forum posts and couldn't really tell if all 505 Turbos (ABS and non-ABS) were equipped with these diffs. Can anyone comment? I took a pic of the code (I hope!) on my differential (86 505 Turbo 5 speed), it is EPBM - the second letter, P, indicates my car has the Torsen diff. Is that correct?
  13. Well, I will keep you all posted... I will advocate for as high a valuation as I can, but it is difficult when most of the 505's on Craigslist or E-Bay are not comparable to this one. Closest was the one that just went on bringatrailer which was an '89, but had many more issues than my car (rust, smoke on start up, inoperative A/C, cruise, poor re-paint here and there on the car, etc.). I suppose that would be balanced out somewhat by being a later car with a more desirable colour (red/grey interior rather than silver/blue interior like mine)???
  14. Yes, I'm thinking the repair will be in the $5k range... Hope they don't come back and tell me my car is worth $1200 or something stupid like that!
  15. Well, I will know tomorrow or Wednesday what the scoop is... My car is completely rust free, never winter driven, always garaged. It is as close to a mint car as you are likely to see for an '86. I would likely not be able to replace it with a similar car, other than possibly finding a southern car and having to switch interiors with the UV/heat damage that southern cars typically have... No worries on the body repair section - the car came with a complete set of factory manuals so I'm set on that front...
