Reviews & Ratings

Our 100% brand new SSP 1600cc twin-port AD-code engine.

Features Stock 85.5mm pistons and cylinders, a stock camshaft, a new Genuine OE spec magnesium crankcase, EMPI stock style 35.5 / 32mm cylinder heads. All providing the reliability and longevity that these engines were famous for.

Our engines are meticulously assembled in the UK from 100% new components on an IATF 16949 / ISO 9002 certified assembly line. They  are spun over for half an hour at 2000rpm for added peace of mind. Oil pressure, cylinder compression and oil leaks are all checked for before dispatch.

We feel that only by using 100% new OE quality components complete reliability is ensured. Re-using old parts with a dubious history have no place in an SSP engine.

Suitable for unleaded fuel. Gasket kit, new oil cooler and flywheel also included.

2 year warranty included in the UK and Mainland Europe and now supplied on an outright basis - no exchange required. Terms and conditions apply.
