Good find, some bargains there if you get lucky, majority is for ej25 though.

you could but might take some time to sell all.

might fire a few bids myself and save them incase I can ever afford a forge

anyone that knowledgeable are any of these parts worth bidding on as if I ever forge my target would be 500HP

Was last week ended Friday.

I picked up the most random lot for 41.40 will need to add postage but should see some profit if resell or buy a 4th to complete the set

Any idea what bhp these would be limited too?

I'd say the likes of rods n block strength will now be of more concern than piston strength / limit

Wonder is that an actual pic of the pistons? any I've seen previous had the green friction coating on the skirts

All these parts seem destined for the conversion of the uk hatchbacks that were converted for cosworth models (I got my old black brembo from these establishments).
Anybody know the price the cosworth inlets went for as there was loads in the lot, that would nested a nice profit for the uk hatchback modders as then inlets are not cheap.
i was going to buy one until I realised it was for the ej25 heads!

The Cosworth inlets, apart from one, were just casting blanks, so needed full machining, threading etc, as for most of the parts they were not fully finished, as with your pistons, no Xylan coating on the skirts, no rings etc.
