Re: advice on cam timing?!

Do you have the camshaft timing card? Which(whose) 272 cams do you have? To properly set them you need a few tools.... a piston stop https://static.summitracing.com/global/images/prod/large/cca-4795.jpg and a timing wheel w/pointer - I had made my own piston stop... but found the manufactured one (a...

Re: What's needed?

hmmm Ford Kent making 170hp and 148 #/ft.... do tell, that is very good, exceptional really.... who built the engine??

Building 170hp 4AGE isnt difficult, but typically torque for that crank hp would be about 130-135 #/ft. 7AGE of 170hp may get you close to 145, maybe to 150.

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes ===> TWINSCREW !!! :-p

That engine is using an SC12! The entire build was predicated on the SC12's retention. Now to be "fair", this is running a double size intercooler, and it does have aftermarket management, and an O/S pulley, but the SC12 was retained... and yes the cams durations would indicate the ability...

Sounds strong. Chasis dyno? What cams? porting? boost? SC plumbing mods ?
Any little tidbits may improve this twin screw torque even more

Re: Why such a small sump?

much more significant..... the earlier rwd pans are 4 quarts, while the later pans are less volume. If you look at the pan from the front of the engine, there is a "kick-in" on the intake side (axle side in transverse layouts). having more oil available is never really a bad thing... the M...

Re: 20v smallport inlet

Is the 20v head flow advantage over a smallport head worth the effort ? On stock form the Blacktop head will easily outflow a stock smallport head. Flow @ 9mm lift is usually about 180cfm for a smallport, and about 190 cfm for a stock Blacktop. But total numbers are only part of the story... at low...
