Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

Probably the most common gasket compressed thickness would be 0.040". So it is straight forward to go with zero deck height (pistons flush with deck) and 0.040" head gaskets, which gives a good quench height of 0.040". You could use the same approach with any gasket between 0.039 to 0...

Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

I'd say 0.040" to 0.045" is a good range for quench height.

Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

If you are going to skim the block to square it up, then you might as well ensure that the quench height is optimised. - It will increase the compression ratio which will help with energy efficiency and power as well as giving you more options when it comes to camshaft selection - It will improve qu...

Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

You used to be able too buy some templates for the ideal port shape. Some one I know bought a set of heads that had already been ported and he reckoned the engine was a lot more free revving. If you are after a little more efficiency from your engine getting the compression close to 10 to 1 is a go...

Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

An extreme example of how port mismatches may not make much of a difference relates to the Big Block Chevrolet (BBC). A square port inlet manifold has been proven to work very well on an oval port head. See the image to get an idea of the degree of port mismatch. http://www.usmuscle.com.au/Forum/att...

Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

Pocket porting is well and truly worth the effort, but port matching commonly yields little to no improvement.

Re: E10 Petrol

Why would you need to run 98 RON unless you have a modified engine? I have run my Mk. 3 on NZ 91 RON for 16 years with no issues and I have a slightly increased comp. ratio (9.2:1 if I remember right!). I was actually thinking of the B motors that had a 10:1 compression ratio vs 8.2:1 for the RB mo...

Re: E10 Petrol

That makes more sense.

Wouldn't most of you use 98 RON anyway? It won't be good if even the 98 RON has 5% ethanol in it.
