    Finally found a B5244T5 engine

    After months of looking I should be getting a B5244T5 engine next week (v70/s60 2.4 T5 engine). My original plan was to rebuild the bottom end (possibly with stronger rods) then drop my 850R head on top which was lightly ported and rebuilt a few thousand miles ago. However I'm now wondering if I should keep the later head as it meant to flow better than the earlier ones. That would mean dealing with the dual VVT system it uses. I have heard that it will behave quite happily if left alone unplugged and also have seen a chap who has welded his up (which seems a little crude but hey !) Anyone know of any off the shelf pulley adapter that perhaps can be used with the earlier fixed pulleys ? In an ideal world I'd love to use the VVT and coil on plug but that's a whole other project !

    Im runing 25psi on my k24 between 2.8k and 5.5k rpms and no issues at all. About the B5244T5 head, I would keep it and use a Vast ECU with VVT control.

    The Vast ecu may have to wait, not easy convincing the missus that I need to spend lots of money on a 23 year old car !

    I'm glad you posted ! I was reading some old threads of yours just last night, really liked what you did with the pulleys (haven't got any adapters for sale have you ?). Am I right in thinking that if you blank off the VVT solonoids there isn't any oil feed to the pulleys (so you don't need an internal o-ring in the pulleys) or is there still a feed through the cam ? I'm also intending to shim the liners and likely do a full rebuild with a set of stronger rods (if money allows). The engine turned up today and seems ok, just wish they hadn't chopped through every rubber hose and metal coolant pipe they could find ! (even cut through the dipstick tube !). I'll likely be bothering you a bit in the future (if that's ok ?)

    I have a couple of pulleys and a couple of solenoid blanking plates left over.

    Yeah just fitted the a solenoid blanking plate will stop the oil feed to the VVT pulleys. If I can help just shout out.
