Here are a few mods that will be required in order to use the AEB block and G-ladder:

Block off crank sensor, this won't be used on the 8V. G60 build, but will be using the crank sensor with the standalone Megasquirt for the 20V. G60 build


New knock sensor position:



Drill thru the block and tap for AN fitting - this will be oil return for the G-ladder supercharger:



Install frost plug in crank vent hole:



Modify the rear G-ladder support bracket to fit in this area:



Machine flat, the back of the G-ladder bracket and fabricate a plate to the shape of the crank vent opening:

Drill and tap the rear G-ladder bracket and plate for a AN12 line that will be ran to the supercharger return line for additional oiling of the G60. Here what it looks like installed:

When I removed the oversize pistons from the PG block though that the bottom skirt had came in contact with the oil squirters but looking closer looks like they may have been ground at the JE before delivery. They are all ground the same and seems at the same angle as well

Started cleaning the internals to be swapped into the brand new AEB block. Soak the pistons in Berryman Carburetor & Parts Cleaner for 24hrs carbon wiped right off, re-soaked for another 24hrs, all piston ring grooves are squeaky clean. Top of the piston not perfect but lot better then what I started with :)
