M20 Engine Specs

Here are the specs of my initial M20B28 engine build.

I started with a standard M20 2.5 that was mostly complete but partially disassembled. A 2.7 crankshaft, connecting rods, and flat-top pistons came with it. The 2.7 rods and pistons are commonly used in turbo builds.

I used the 325i rods and custom Wiseco pistons. I could not use the stock i pistons because they are too tall with the long stroke of the 2.7 crank.

Here are the final specs:
