      Cams are done, tested. Work great- see the big all motor numbers we posted a few weeks ago. However, they need some higher compression to really work, and they push the rpm band up significantly...

      FWIW:

      I once had to build a 1.8L 20v for a customer who was running in a class which limited displacement to that. The motor was the same specs we ~usually build but not stroked, just a forged...

      We get the whole gammut here from 110+ in the summer to -xx in the winter sometimes... Below 20 or 30 you'll definitely have audible slap from a 2618 built engine even with correct wall clearances...

      Yea, we are only doing 83mm x 92.8 at the moment. It's not a custom order situation but rather a "small production run".

      Ya, I recommend Mahle's for most builds. In fact we like them so much that we had a some custom made on a heavier duty forging, with a heavier duty wrist pin- so we can use them on bigger power...

      We may be able to accommodate that, but you WILL need a re-tune for this. I will figure out pricing for that on Monday.

      I would not recommend that. It would take me some testing to figure out what 91 octane will support with that high torque setup, probably less compression then with a SRI... We certainly wouldn't be...

      OK, finally... Some details

      Proposed kit increases the compression from under 10:1 to a full 12:1 which will operate nicely on 91 or 93. Gains are expected to be about 30hp over existing SRI...

      Stage 1 files for auto no problem... We do not recommend the stage 2 SRI setup for automatics because the rev limiter cannot be raised. :thumbup:

      Ya, I immo off'd it, checksummed it correctly, and even read it back out to make sure it wrote the eeprom correctly... I didn't have any spare stock files or anything for that ECU PN so, just had...

      Ya, sorry, the guys are still putting together a kit list and price. Soon though I promise. :)

      If the AEB likes more ignition timing that's just because the mid range has suffered from the big ports. The combustion chamber is the same.

      Ya, i just used an off the shelf collector to save time. Maybe in the future, i need to do some math on the header for the next version of this. I think we have plenty of rpm just need to turn up the...

      You could make more power with race fuel, but ya, you won't be able to run high boost on pump fuels.

      Yes, these particular pistons will be done for stock rods to keep costs low. However, we can...

      There's nothing wrong with the headgasket. The head lifts. That's sort of a good thing, because if it didn't it would be breaking the bottom end instead most likely.

      It's ok guys, let's all keep it casual.

      There's no black and white here, that's the bottom line. It's all combinations and shades of grey.

      If you want max power on pump fuel, you need low...

      Working on costing now that we have results. I'm headed out of town on work friday and Monday, so hopefully the guys have it done on Tuesday.
