    Re: Cosi Cams Part II: +30 HP & 24 ft-lbs

    We want to see what the differences are. I am hoping that we can knock the knock count down to zero so we can add more timing. Timing has a synergistic effect of reducing combustion temps and EGT if...
  5. Re: Smartbomb's bolt-on Evo+cams = +25 hp & +17 ft-lb

    I run an aggressive Mivec map and run the intake cam 15 degrees advanced all the way to the fuel cut. This is a lot of overlap for a stock turbo equiped motor. The stock exhaust manifold doesn’t...
  6. Re: is it worth it to get an aftermarket header,for the stock turbo??

    I ahve a full race prostock manifold, its made of thick stainless weld-el so its not going to crack. The mainfold has allowed me to run more overlap and timing above 6500 rpm which aloowed for good...

    Re: Evo 9+parts+re-tune = +28 hp and ft-lbs

    The secret is adding valve overlap with Mivec, this reduces cylinder pressure at high rpm which allows the cylinder pressure to be brought back up by adding timing. This has a cascade effect because...

    Re: whats a good bov

    +1 on the above. I don't like the Forge on the IX, but on the VIII it works better if you have turnd up the boost. I get a bit of DV flutter and a little bit of compressor surge with the Forge.

  13. Re: Spinning stud on my spacer any ideas of how to get it off?

    I have also gotten these things off by grabbing the back base with some vice grips, it can be an akward angle, just enough to get some grip, then hitting it with a big impact gun. The grip allows...

    Re: Megan Turbo Manifold

    Megan stuff is cheesy fake chinese stuff that is branded to fool people. It will probably crack. A ported stock manifold or a Fullrace ProStock is the way to go.

    Re: Why You Should NOT Launch Your Evo

    Twin discs are toughter and have more holding power but they wear faster and loose clamp load quicker because they have 2x the wearing surfaces.

    I run the Full Race Prostreet header and it spools the turbo much faster and seems to have more power. I am going to DLL and dyno in the next week or two so I can report the exact benifits. It really...
