MITSUBISHI 6G72

Nov 24th, 2017

Today, we have a Mitsubishi GTO for processing the lower back as well as piston and crank assembly.
As this is a V6 engine, we implemented dynamic weight balancing with bob weight mounting.
The piston is forged and the connecting rod is an H beam. (H cross section, made overseas, such a thing exists, huh. Also for 6G72.)
Since this is a 4 main volt block, there’s no doubt it is a DOHC head.
The installation of the oil jet is like an M64 crankcase. (M64 = 964 PORSCHE)


Today’s welding

Nov 24th, 2017

We’re looking at another TIG today.
There are still a lot of standard L28 heads out there.
We’re welding to make sure no burrow holes are made and there are no distortions. Extra care is needed here. Using a jig, we’ll prepare the welding rod to be as close to the original material as possible.
After this we will put in the BIG seat ring and finish it off.


Today PORSCHE 996

Nov 20th, 2017

We’re doing another honing for a 996. It’s for a modification process to put a liner made of a special cast iron material.
Although Porsche is one of NAPREC’s specialties, this work will take time and effort, but it’ll definitely get it done right with plenty of TLC!
Precision is our name, passion is our game, we’ll make sure this engine lives a long, healthy life for our customer to enjoy.


TOYOTA 2JZ DrySump

Nov 17th, 2017

The cylinder head got CNC porting for our high response race kit as well as CNC combustion chamber processing.
The block is a special 3,400cc engine for which we also produced water plugs.
Of course, it has billet crankcaps as well.

Then there’s the drysump which is from another company.

The image was taken at the customer’s factory, and the assembly was done by their staff as well.


BEARING

Nov 16th, 2017

Today we’re modifying the connecting rod metal to make it the main metal.
It’s a considerably reckless process, but the connecting rod metal was the one that fit best.
We processed the oil groove inside the flat connecting rod metal. It took a good amount of time to complete as it was produced with a jig tool.
Now that we have secured the oil path, the next step is to drill the oil hole.


SR20DET Engine

Nov 14th, 2017

We have just received an SR20DET for an engine overhaul.
Thank you for choosing Naprec.
We’ll turn this engine into something very special!


RB26DETT ThrottleBody

Nov 13th, 2017

We’re working on making a big throttle for an RB26DETT.
Recently, there have been many cases of damaged throttles for RB26DETT’s.
Especially cases where the resin collar inside the return spring has deteriorated and has broken.

We are enlarging the inner diameter of three throttles from 45mm to 49mm.
They will also be getting a wet blast finish.


SR20DET DrySump OilPan

Nov 12th, 2017

We are building a dry sump oil pan for an SR20DET.
Can’t show too much, but this is what the inside looks like.


Lamborghini CamCap

Nov 11th, 2017

We have had many cylinder head repairs recently.
Today we’re working on cam line burn repair and cam cap production line boring, sweet stuff.
We’ll continue with several more after this.
On the left is the original, and on the right is the completed product, love the shine.


Daihatsu

Oct 26th, 2017

Precise balance correction of a Copen JB-type crankshaft was done today.
A 4 cylinder for a Kei car (Japanese category for small cars) is very special, they are typically 3 cylinder cars.
This crankshaft was produced by casting.
Cast iron cranks are particularly great as they barely bend at all.
We always check to make sure there is as little distortion with the balance as possible.

This time we treated the final surface treatment with manganese phosphate, this reduces sliding resistance and reduces wear.
The image shown is the result of the surface treatment.
After this, we will work on polishing the journal.
