Rebuilding a C16 XE
I bought a C16 XE with dodgy valve stem seals and a cracked collar.
I have had the head COMPLETLY reworked so is basically a new head, this is ready to go back on the bottom end now.
The basic layout of the engine so far is as follows...
C16 XE 1600 16v
re honed bottom end
It will be ran with a Mocal oil cooler and a few other little touches, it is going into a Nova GSi.
i am after a new set of cams (fast road ones) and a unichip is also on the shopping list.
Is there anything else people could recommend that is done whilst still in bits, and any little tips about putting it all back together.
Oh yeah the engine is being ran with a F15 and also have plans to get a quaife LSD in the not so distant future, would a paddle clutch be any use with this setup?
