    Very nice! I like what you have done with the exhaust port exit. Should make building custom headers a little easier.

    Thanks TK, love checking out your builds. Just curious, when you're checking pushrod lengths with the checking springs do you normally do this with the head torqued down on the gasket?

    She's built to achieve high trapped VE% - which results in high dynamic compression, higher than you'd think given the static comp. Going up to 13:1 I'm 90% certain would result in detonation.
    I could push it a little higher, but fuel for this is going to be kept in drums in a shed for a period of time, best to err on the side of caution & leave some safety margin in it.
    Going up to 12.7-12.8:1 would maybe see 5-10hp, if that, not worth the risk.

    Thanks TK, love checking out your builds. Just curious, when you're checking pushrod lengths with the checking springs do you normally do this with the head torqued down on the gasket?
    Just nipped up with a couple of studs, not torqued - a couple of thou makes no difference.
    Pic actually shows me checking piston to valve clearance, I just set up the valve train & slide feeler blades between the rocker tip & the valve tip then rotate over slowly & feel for contact - I got to .100" clearance on both intake & exhaust & stopped checking there, don't need to know exact clearance, .100" is plenty.

    Lunati are rebadged Morel lifters, I've used a few sets lately & have been happy with them, not to mention they are quite a bit cheaper than the crane lifters - Crane are a better lifter, but the Morels are definitely up to the task.
    I use the moroso block filler, 2 jugs is enough to do a block - you can fill as high as 1cm down from the water pump holes, which is a fair way up the welsh plugs.

    Manifold all done, match ported, runner entries opened up & runner roofs raised up into a 1" alloy spacer which is permanently attatched:











    Coolant bypass lines done in -6 braid.
    I made up a 12 deg advance bush for the pro-billet dissy - shortest that comes with it is 18 deg, which is too much mechanical advance for this one.
    Dissy static timed at 14 initial to start with.

    Just need to bolt up a water pump drive & make up the leads - MSD 8.8mm leads.
