As I'm going for a fairly high spec engine I was wondering what actual XE crank to use? The current situation is that the block currently in my Astra has the early crank and the block sitting in my bruv's lockup has the late one. Obviously I can keep the astra on the road until the engines built if I use the later crank.
I know the early one is about 2kg's lighter? But I assume the later one is stronger due to being heavier? The 'super' engine is gonna be putting out a minimum of 250bhp so would it be better going for the 'stronger' crank and get it balanced and a bit lightened?
Hmmmmmmm I dunno
