Re: OST-062: Mixed Breed Autocross Whip

Good to know that the DNJ quality is OK. When I got my set years ago, the quality seemed decent. If only someone at DNJ would change the oil return slot into oil return holes. Or does that not matter too much? That would be nice... but DNJ follow the OEM on that. It wasn't until the 20V pistons tha...

The DNJ pistons have worked out well for people's builds? This is the second engine I've built that utilizes those pistons. OST-032, Skippy... that engine was also built using the DNJ pistons, Skippy's engine is now being used in a FX16 built for rally use. https://instagram.fvno1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v...

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...

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&...
