Great build though.

have had both 184c's and n1's, i'm pro kelford. the low cams are a whole heap nicer and they make more power as well. as for the high cam, i'm still trying to sort out my intake manifold. info and updates soon, when i have some results.

using this > http://www.race-cars.net/calculators/compression_calculator.html , and assuming 1.1mm oem sr20vet metal head gasket thickness is right, puts it at around 13.3. heres a hot comp reading.

Not sure how much thickness changes when taken off the engine, but my SR20VET MLS gasket measured 1.3 mm after 3 years of use.

My 12.5:1 CP pistons are yielding 290-295 PSI when warm, the gauge pegs then settles. The head and block were resurfaced though, and running decent timing on 93 octane pump gas.

Been a while now, thought i'd post an update.

After some advice from jamie marsh and pat klutch, i have decided to change my intake manifold, in an attempt to cure the motors 7k power ceiling. In he meantime, a few things turned up.



and i know its a motor thread, but these things have been great...



In the end, a gato intake got the nod (thanks pat k). Unfortunately for me, i must be the first guy in the whole world to fit one to a rhd car, and the rhs brake booster has made it a bit of an adventure, especially after gato sent me a 6 1/4" runner version. This has also meant an injector change (id440 top feeds), aeromotive fpr, and some nice injector loom adapters from Eric Siu.



Was going to use my xcessive spacer again, but now going with the oem one due to space requirements



The manifold is a really good piece. Lovely straight shot at the intake port (looks bent,isn't). lovely upward angle with slight taper.





Ported heads only need apply. Looks to me like they use a similar flange to the mazworx one. 55ish mm width.



In the end, i ended up welding a plate to the bottom for the iacv again. It was just easier to fit on this way. Keen eyes might spot and rhd "mods"...

Most importantly, it gunna have all the flow i will ever need. This spot is the smallest in the runners, right before the head flange. Should equate to better than 2.5 square inches.



Plenum volume is 4.75 litres, plus 1ltr for the 4 runners. Photos sponsored by Trojan...





Pro tip for gato user's, get yourself some screw in studs. I ended up with arp ones. There no room for the normal screw in studs. i have to re-locate my power steering hoses and hydro clutch reservoir.



Keen eyes will also see the iat and map points. My tuner has requested a new (haltec ps1000) brain to run the show.



more soon!
