Nice...except for the DP and the fact that I'm working on a "home-made HV3" and modded L67 TB, that'* pretty much right where I'll be with mods within a few months.
Hey FireBuick, maybe I can be "CinderBuick."
Interesting thing on the rockers...I just got a set of modded stockers (1.85/1.80), and I'm getting told by the online calculators (wallaceracing.com, et.al.) that I really only need "half the set" on a non-cammed, n/a engine, with head-port-matched LIM, that'* only going to spin up to 6250 or so max.
That is, the "optimal" setup, according to the calcs, is 1.85 (or 1.80, minimal difference) intake, and regular old 1.6 exhaust. If this is true, then I should see a big gain when I swap in the 1.85'* on the intake, but no real difference (possibly even a loss) when I put the 1.80'* on the exhaust. I do plan to test and report on this in the not too distant future...
(Those same calcs are giving me second thoughts about the head porting work from my other thread, but that'* a different story...)
