Measured the head cc on my head the other night - 27cc - which basically worked out to 13.45:1 CR on my car. Remember I don't run 8v pistons. I'm giving up on that head though, too much wrong with it and too expensive to try fix it. Sarel is busy doing a proper Stage 3 head for me now, with rev kit, semi solid lifters and 298 hydraulic cam. If I am still struggling to make power, it just means my bottom-end is stuffed. But I can live with that till I can afford a proper bottom-end.
Oh and what happened with your box? Find any drag on there? My box is in pieces at the moment, and I finally figured out why I get so much wheelspin - there is no LS-Diff in the car.
Lots of work before I can get my car on the track by the 16th!
I can't get avgas as easily as you do so for now 95 + mix will do, my car is supposed to make decent power on just 95 so ya, the head he is building you is exactly what he built for me. it's still at the shop as I got them to recheck it and skim it further. will collect it this week and try it again at a later stage.
Box is fine drag is just as low on the dyno as a normal link shift, so that's not the issue. I'm semi-sorted with the suspension setup now ran a 1m18 flat two weeks back at Zwartkops on old tyres so relatively happy that I'm progressing.
LS is for girls! you don't need it to be quick in a Golf and you're closer to Superhatch spec
I saw you ran at the Michelin Cup event yeah.
Yeah, head is basically the same, except that mine will be over 13:1 CR and ported for the throttles (different to single throttle body).
It's easy to get fuel, but it just requires someone to go fetch it. We take turns to go get, but we buy a lot at a time (500+ liters) so only go every few months. I don't like mixes.
LS just makes a lot of things better - if I was running Superhatch spec or Challenge spec, sure, but with the way my car is set up it gets wheelspin everywhere. I could tweak suspension setup to eliminate wheelsping mostly, but I would rather have one - suits my driving style more - car is already damn loose and without the LS I can't get on the power as early as I want, nose just pushes wide on the exit. LS will remedy that. I'm quite confident that I'd be able to do 13s with my car with not much more power than I have at the moment, just need to be able to put the power down. My apex speeds are already basically on par with Keagan's CRX which runs 225s, but because I have to wait to get on the power, my straight line speeds suffer.
