    Hey mate,
    Is this still Turbo' or N/A now?
    I remember you asking about Turbo cams ages ago, but haven't read any more from you.

    certainly are mate.....these will go close to 250cfm, initial testing looks promising these have even better low/mid lift due to the fact the previous porter didnt hack under the seat allowing us to use a better seat profile and also less core shift means we can go a little further in some places with less risk......i have some nice lobes for this as well will touch base tomorrow to discuss

    here's darcati's 1st initial test....more to come in the next week

    if they dont start flowing good numbers by 400 you know they wont come good over that

    mid range flow on those heads is very good 226.3 cfm @ .400, thats 465hp at .400 lift

    e

    Very good memory, yeah I have all the bits to put together a nice 355 turbo setup but started this side project instead. I thought I'd have less hassles with blue and pink slips with a NA engine, this should make 500+ HP which should be enough on the street for now but as always the power bug may bite later on. I wanted to see how far an early headed 355 can be taken and be semi streetable and firmly believe Pete can deliver the goods as you can see the the low lift flow is impressive and as Pete mentioned has negligible core shift and haven't been hacked by the original porter.

    Hey Pete, been away just returned from camping... Heads look great mate and the flow figures are fantastic... As absolutely always your work is second to none and I feel greatful to have someone like your self work on these.. Lookin forward to screwing it together and putting it on the dyno, unfortunately it'll be chassis dyno but its booked in and will ensure to post the results..

    Dont care about flow figures ... I care about whether or not these heads are getting single plane intakes, and not soiled by dual planes .. I pray to god, you are advising these people on manifolding as well as doing the port work Pete??

    Going with a ported Stripmaster for bonnet clearance in the Commodore, also have a TP single plane but getting a filter on without a hole is too tight even using a K&N drop base. Didn't want any holes in bonnet.
