The smallest of chunks missing here. I certainly wouldn't want to use them in an engine I'm looking for a lot of power from

I found these from ozzy land, brand new semi pp. Probably end up purchasing these nearer the time I'm want them as it work about 1900 to my door. However most likely be able to get some really good used ones with a semi pp for half that over here maybe. I guess it's just whether I want new housings or not really

Iv seen get ground but it depends on the extent of the condition of them, gouges from apex seal failures prety much make them garage ornaments but chatter marks etc can be ok.

I'm. Not sure if anyone in the UK does it, I think someone did have a go a few years ago but don't know if they succeeded with it.

Recon at a couple hundred  rather than 1100 brand new is more appealing

Yeh, I think these are junk tbh, one might be OK for a mediocre build but not for what I'm aiming for.

Just trying to find the name of the company that re conditions them

We do that when they are useable Grant. Been doing for many years.
Those housings aren't so good enough for reconditioning though.

OK, these are not well!

Maybe worth knowing we have supplied five new full PP engines in pieces over the last year to a french company building replica works Gen 1 NA engines.   
All the best Clive

There's something to be said for using rotor housings that have been through many heat cycles for bigger power rather than new ones...

He is not wanting full big PP housings Clive but wanting to build a semi PP using small Peripheral ports along with side ports still.
They match to combi port manifolds.
That's something we have done in the past too.

Didn't know you did them, great to know. You know I will be getting them from you anyway

These are garage ornaments for sure.

Not a full PP, just semi PP, but maybe a full PP eventually
