Funny enough the bore distortion on a YB is almost the same as a evo with the tq plate removed.

If you half fill the block it stops a lot of distortion and the car can be run daily with no issues.

Check out some videos from jrp and others really interesting stuff

Daily as in daily

Hundreds of post from users stm jrp ER boosted to name a few.

The yanks imho are going faster than us over in the UK we are still using rods and pistons from 10 years ago they are doing something we are not.

How many ppl use the 1/2” head studs ?
How many use the L19 main studs
The fire ring HG Soloutions
The steel inserts in the head to stop distortion
The bigger stud washers
Hard anodised pistons


Over here we got it’s not needed

I have friends I. The US that have done hundreds of miles on road and track at 850 plus trapping low 9s and no HG issues or temp issues.
Plus they don’t measure clearances with Plastigauge .

Try something new it works

The bits we are not doing is extending the truth lol.
1/2 studs aren’t needed if you are using the correct yield studs most just use off the shelf rather than bespoke custom studs.
Sealing rings for hg yes for years on gto engines I have done not found the need on the evo yet.
Seen many turbo kits from the states with cooling fans they claim to run only to overheat here lol.
Yes a lot of the Uk market tuners are full of bs just like the us market also.

It’s no diffrence to any other tunning platform, the us are miles ahead and push the envelope imo.

What do us English do not much only tuner really to anything special in evo scene in my opinion is Norris designs.

The rest just use parts designed by others

12 August – the last hanging under the Black Act in England is of William Potter for cutting down an orchard; the judge petitions for reprieve.
13 August – the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1814 is signed in London, returning most possessions of the Dutch Empire acquired by the United Kingdom since 1803 to the Netherlands, although Britain retains the Cape of Good Hope and the South American settlements of Demerara, Essequibo and Berbice (later consolidated as British Guiana). In addition, Britain cedes the island of Banca off the island of Sumatra in exchange for the settlement of Cochin in India.
24 August – War of 1812: The Burning of Washington: British troops burn Washington, D.C..[1]
28 August – Alexandria, Virginia, offers surrender to the British fleet without a fight

Presumably towards the end of August . . .
