I get that alot.looks like your doing a great job, just wondering why you didnt pull the heads to port them, Ive never seen anyone port heads on an assembled motor before.
thanks for the link BUT that site has a bazillion things Do you have a part# or at least a Keyword?A small update. I had a driverside header leak. So I resanded down the flange, and this time used some RTV high temp ultra copper and let it sit over night, no more leak. The bronze sleeves worked like a champ! No signs of carbon makes anywhere on the flange. I got the sleeves at McMaster-Carr.
I get that alot.
My theory is if it isn't broke, don't fix it. The head gaskets are original and have yet to give me any issues.
I'm certain in the future I'll blow one of them trying to go for broke, then I'll port the heads
i think its time to port the heads... i can def. understand why you didnt take the heads off, but after all the porting you did you left the most restrictive parts of the air stream untouched! that is the bowl and throat area of the cylinder head right behind the intake valve head. you're trying to cram more air through the same size holes as before!Other then recording and studing my runs, I'm at a loss at what to do. I will be ordering an air bag this week so maybe get more shorts even lower.
