i whole-heartidly(?) thought the sigma was gonig to be involved...
But really this looks as though its going to get very interesting.
is '26 a 32 motor? going to do any refresh/maintainence on it?

The motor has a knock, I bought it cheap. It's out of a R32, hopefully it won't be too rooted when I pull it apart, I've got an N1 oil pump for it and some ARP rod bolts. It will be getting new bearings but I don't really want to pull the head off or pull the pistons out, but we'll see what happens.

Looking forward to this build. I would suggest doing a little bit more of a bottom end rebuild if it actually has a knock, because if its not a major yet, it probably will be if you just throw bearings at it then go back to boosting.

What are you doing with that motor??

I'm investigating forged pistons and H/I beam rods but that's going to add $$ to the build.
L28 ended up getting split up which is a bit sad, I sold the bottom end and throttle bodies. I'll keep the head for the moment.
A VQ30 would end up pretty much inline with the strut towers, they are pretty awesome motors, my mate has a nearly standard one with a GT3540 that makes 430whp, it's going back for tuning in 2 weeks and will probably end up with 500+

Could also offset grind the journal and achieve a slightly longer stroke

Looks like I've found some 2nd hand JE forged pistons and some Tomei Poncams for $1200.
