    You can Pm me anytime mate. You will also need Cylinder head bolts, camshafts timing chain sliding rail bolts and cam sprocket retaining bolts. It might be easier to drop the pistons out the bottom? You could then fit new big end bearings, that way your pretty much going to have serviced the major parts with your chain kit that you fitted. I'd ask over on 2.2 tbh mate, there knowledge far far outweighs mine.
