    building stuff for x-flows and then flogging/testing them in either speedway or burnout cars.

  1. They will rev it to the rpm ceiling you set, or to when it runs out of power, whatever comes first. If it's balanced properly then it should handle a good rev. It's on,y a short burst.
  2. It will make what it makes and no more. The benefit you will get from the dyno tune is an engine that performs to the best of its ability with what you have. Well that's provided the dyno tuner knows what he/she is doing. As others have said, its about the package and there a couple of things that aren't optimal in the current form. But at the end of the day I think it's a huge positive step forward just getting it to the dyno.
  3. I just wish my glass corty bumpers came with some form of internal mount like those. Never mind. I'll get itchy laying some in.
  4. Clevo intakes cut down, chev exhausts cut down.
  5. What was the low and mid lift figures on that 1.91" head? That's good peak flow. Where did it make that peak? Seat cut is cams basic seat cut. Valves are back cut a fraction with the standard ferrea neck down.
  6. Went back to the flow bench today with a new port and chamber design. It was based on the stuff we learnt from doing the last 3 test ports, you know the ones that caused all the conjecture. Anyway I had a c1 head sitting here that had stainless ferrea valves (1.84&1.5) and all the guides and seats done. It just needed porting. I've had it for years and decided now was the time. Here are the results. Pretty damn impressive I must say, especially considering how small the valve is. Then have a look at the port window, yep it's stock. ZERO welding or bogging done to the port. None. Before the naysayers and the like ask, no I'm not sharing what the x section is, nor the chamber shape. Please keep in mind (as I've said numerous times) Anthony's bench flows 10cfm below name benches. That's 243cfm of flow through a 1.84 valve and a stock port window!!! Smallest port doing the biggest job. Look at the mid lift figures. Solid as a rock. p.s. Please ignore the valve size on the test sheet. Anthony didn't change it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Check out old mate at just race parts for his 10in1 gauge. It's cheap and cheerful and can data log for 2 minute intervals. Not as good as the one gauge for logging and quality of sensors but man it's cheap and for your engine it would be perfect.
  8. Will be the best investment if you consider a career in road tuning
  9. Oh dear, same same in here. I use bp*es plugs in all my stuff. I'm not a fan of the long ones, mainly because I'm a fan of close to zero deck height. Did you do a compression test when you first built the engine? Have you done a compression test since? Many people forget this most basic tool of judging engine condition. Yes a leak down test is more conclusive, but for most situations a simple compression test and comparison to previous test is invaluable. Plug reads like you are doing, or seem to be doing are not accurate at all. To be close to accurate they must be done immediately after a run and the engine not let to idle one bit. Why in gods name anyone would put themselves thru the frustration of trying to read a plug in these days of cheap afr gauges is beyond me. Seriously plug reading it's useless for the beginner and for anything 'road tuned'. I still do it on the race stuff but only on a complete shutdown and to back up known data from the logger and gauge. In my opinion you are on a hiding to nothing and if your doing it for a 'learning experience' it's seriously not the way to go. Buy an afr gauge, drive the car with someone watching it and make changes based on that data. You'll be a lot closer to the endless guessing game your on at present.
  10. Give old mate at just race parts a go. Cam got a wideband from him and I was very impressed with its function and price. Used the latest Bosch sensor as well. Something the AEM doesn't
  11. Have a look at Just Race Parts. They are in central Brissy and they sell some decent stuff. They do a decent wideband gauge that's a bit cheaper than the AEM units. He has a fair bit of stock there
  12. Summit jet kit is actually a Holley jet kit. Peel the summit sticker off and there is the Holley brand. From memory they are $48 US and freight would be $30 tops.
  13. If your dead set keen on trying to tune this thing yourself on the road, Buy yourself 2 things. An AEM afr gauge & a Holley jet kit. They are cheap as from summit. Way cheaper than buying 2 jets at $10 a go. Anything else is a complete and utter waste of time, totally inaccurate and potentially very dangerous for your engine.
  14. 'Your not known unless your blown'
  15. What Thom said. That's what I was worried about. You gotta blank that off. Holley owns quickfuel now. The metering blocks will accept normal petrol jets. QFT's e85 carbs still use petrol Jets. The methanol carbs use the bigger thread 'alcohol' Jets.
