Keep Your Engine Square and True When You Performance Machine Work!
Most people are unaware that honing a block without torque pressure around the cylinders can cause deformation of the cylinder walls once the engine is assembled. This can prevent piston rings from completely sealing, leading to scuffing of the cylinder walls, decreased piston life, and in some cases, a wasted block. If you’ve invested any amount of money into your build like most of our customers, the above circumstances are the last thing you want to happen.
MAPerformance is proud to announce the addition of the K Series Torque Plate to our ever expanding list of engine assembly accessories. In our years of experience working with many high performance engines, every platform is prone to cylinder distortion if no torque is applied while machine work is performed. Do yourself a favor by installing this K20 / K24 torque plate during the boring process to ensure you’re putting the same constraints on the block as you would during assembly. [Continue Reading]
