    I'd make sure that water leak on the front of the block is a thing of the past. Good luck matey!

    Haven't taken my engine out yet. Got all spare engine parts I need to build it up fully using KR ported head and inlet manifold, sachs fast road clutch and all new gaskets and seals so just going do a quick 1 for 1 swap when its ready. Im off work for 2weeks so got plenty of time to do it right lol.
    Got vibratech mounts all round as well

    I got all mine ready before i removed my engine.

    With everything ready took just over 6 hours from a running KR to a running 9A. You will be happy with the results.

    I used a standard 9A head with KR cams and that produced 171bhp running on the standard KR Kjet.

    Wow 171 bhp with standard 9a head.
    I was hoping for 150-160 with a stainless manifold, k+n filter and wur mod on kjet.

    Re: 9a engine conversion

    Mine had a completely standard engine bar the KR cams.

    Miltec 4 branch with power flow exhaust. K & N panel filter with drilled air box. No WUR mod and the timing was just copied off the KR lol.

    Gives far better drive ability and I found it better to drive than the later 20vt conversion I did to it.

    Should easy see over 160bhp

    Re: 9a engine conversion

    Sounds good to me lol.
    Already got a miltek 4 branch and k & n filter.
    The head ive put on is fully reconned by myself last year, new guides, new stem seals, reground all the valves in and slightly ported and polished it. It was off my original engine but when i put it all back together the bottom end went 2 weeks later lol (178k). Luckily I had a spare engine at the time. Hopefully should help it breath a bit
    Should be in by weekend I rekon....
