    22.5mm. But I clearly said to them on the email that I only want them if they are 4032 grade and they sold me them. Still waiting for a reply and to confirm my return.  I have sourced the mahle powerpak 4032 grade pistons via mahle direct suppliers in the UK.

    Theyve removed 4032 from the description as I’m guessing they will no longer be doing the 4032 grade. I’ll keep the carillo rods since they’re here now

    I’ve bought a set of mahle 4032 grade pistons from Mar Motorsport so hopefully have the rest of my parts delivered this week. Hopefully the garage has sorted clutch/flywheel and timing chain.

    Getting king racing rod bearings too since their out the engine anyway.

    Mountune still haven’t accepted my return for their pistons they sent me. They emailed me after my initial request with sales patter however totally ignored what I wanted and tried to convince me to keep them. Been a week so far. Terrible service.

    Needing a head gasket as well.

    J w have a standard one but it’s about £200. Pumaspeed have it for about £70, don’t know why there such a difference there but no stock.

    So it’s either Athena and Mountune in terms of getting one soon. Was thinking of the mountune one as it’s closer to stock.

    Any thoughts on this??

    I’m sure places would only stock the new head gasket.  I’m getting my mate to get me one from Arnold Clark who are ordering it in from ford.

    The only difference I can tell between them would be the old one has 2 holes in-between the rings and the new one has 1.
