    Takes power away wrapping it. Lol let it slip on it tsm rules stated it had to have power steering so we would make it barely grab the pulley. Every little bit use to help back in the day

    I haven't updated theirs thread in awhile . Since the last post I have gotten the crank and rods machined
    . The mains polishes up and are still standard . The rods I took it to .010 under. The rods have been resized which was Needed . I am also switching to stage heads . The heads had o ring groves cut in them . I welded them up and they are getting resurfaced . I would have kept the groves but they unfortuinly where to small for my bore which made them fall into the cylinder bore . I just received some single turbo headers that I got a smokin deal on . Here are some pictures of where I'm at IMG_0401.JPG IMG_0403.JPG IMG_0515.JPG IMG_0518.JPG IMG_0525.JPG

    If you are looking for opinions, here you go.
    1 - First , Need to understand your goal and endgame.
    2 - I would take the heads, cam and intake and put it back on the shelf and put the stock style heads back on and maximize that combo first. You will most likely be happier in the end.
    3 - Stage 2 heads really need a radically different combo to extract any benefit so unless you are willing to take that path I would adhere to step 1 above. Based on that cam and assuming you are running modest compression you are better off with stock style heads.
    4 - Stage 2 heads will work but not worth the compromises and extra effort in most situations.

    Did you have to elongate any pushrod holes for the rockers to line up?

    Did you change the flange coming off the header to mount the turbo, looks like it changed sizes ( a little smaller, more oval) than on the first pics.?

    The holes where elongated before I got them . These where ran on a indy block so the lifters where places right next to each other so the pushrods holes had to be modified .
    no that’s how I received the headers .
