How To Make More Reliable Torque Without Busting The Budget

well first i dont think it will be an inline block.

 

what is the cam? as that is what determines the power characteristics.

 

and i would bin the twins and fit a HIF44 on a good inlet manifold.

 

i would check your final drive as well. a 3.44 would be nice.

Ya mine runs out at max max 6500 but lots of low end torque- keeping in mine that like majority of drivers it is rare that I hit 6-6.5 rpm as getting from 1.5 rpm to 5.5 rpm is where all the fun is!

Thx for the offer Phil and I would jump and do it if not for the distance as slightly beyond my capabilities to do the same


Do you not know anybody with a lathe ? It’s a simple enough operation.

Phil.

No unfortunately not as few and far between in Toronto. Also keep in mind this is a modified head from Calver

Ah right, he’s most likely already fitted valves that already feature this modification then.

Yep and Phil, I am setting valve gap at 0.14 and spark plug gap at 0.35 - thoughts and runs great.

Iridium plugs
Sport coil - Petronics ignitor
