Re: OST-063: Busy Boy

What are the plans for that V-8?? Celica? Pickup? Corolla? I wanted to put the one I had in a '71 Celica I had, never got around to it, now I don't have either. Still unsure.... I, like you thought of a RA2, but I'd use the hatchback car - I'm just not a fan of the coupe. Other reasons that likely ...

Re: Formula Atlantic Race Shop Making Room

Any FA Valve covers available? Old or New style? For now - nothing is available. Rods, Pistons And Maybe Strokerparts? No stroker parts, as to rods and pistons - they still have some of the old stuff, but for the most part these are odd ball bits. For example they have rods... but none are matched ...

Re: OST-062: Mixed Breed Autocross Whip

OST just out of curiosity how far can you deck a 4age block? To be honest... I have no idea... I'm sure you can take as much as .020", maybe more. How thick is the thickest gasket??? Cometic has a .120" thick gasket.....????? I've been told the block only needed .009" to get that are...

Re: OST-062: Mixed Breed Autocross Whip

Maybe a FWD mani would do better, with the way turns back into the block would give the clearance to the steering box. At least it would have a better blended exhaust flow and remove a 180* bend. Fabbibg the downpipe would give a chance to tune the exhaust a bit as well. Just need a mani and downpi...

Looking at that engine compartment again. Is there a reason for using a turbo manifold?? Clearance issues? Wouldn't a stock Corolla mani do a better job?

Re: OST-062: Mixed Breed Autocross Whip

That .012" might work well enough. I found a lot, if not most, aftermarket pistons are machined for a .010" lower compression height . That's for a good clean up on the block. We shall see.... Cometic has soo many different thicknesses, it should be no problem setting squish between .032&...
