You guys do have better beer - and it's hard to improve on a good German beer. For such a small country, you guys have more varieties per capita than any other country in the world. I haven't tasted a bad Belgian beer yet!

Re: My Head is all Scratchy (Pg. 111) - The Speedfoos' Turbo Thread!!

that thing is going to scream when you done. congrats, i cant wait to see the numbers!!

Re: My Head is all Scratchy (Pg. 111) - The Speedfoos' Turbo Thread!!

those exhaust ports on the p&ped head are big.
what size are they?
Looks like the valve guides are shorter too if you compare them.

Re: My Head is all Scratchy (Pg. 111) - The Speedfoos' Turbo Thread!!

I'll measure the exhaust ports in a little bit Ching, but yeah, they're pretty ****ing big. Smoothing out the head-to-mani transition should be easy enough, but I think the gasket may give a some grief. I may have to order another sheet of gasket material and just make a new one if I can't cut the metal one like I need to.

It looks like the valve guides were shaved to flow with the intake and exhaust chambers. That part of the PnP job appears to have been done well.

I'm running between 9 - 9.75 right now until I swap the head out this weekend. Then I should be able to ratchet it down to 7 psi and still make the same amount of power.
