Re: Cul8r's g180w/g200w chevette

So I'm a bit [a year] behind the 8-ball with this, but, rad!!! I love it. Looks absolutely boss. What's it like to drive? One of my twincams is nearing completion, but is on the back-burner due to the drift car... Hopefully soon I'll have something to contribute!

Re: G161W-G180W-G200W bearing sets (including cam bearings)

Yup, put me down for at least two sets of cam bearings (with dummy cam bearings too). I may or may not have to flounder for the money depending on how things are at the time, but I'm pretty much of the same thoughts as ISU - will do (almost) anything for two sets. Two of my cars will definitely be r...

Re: Cam bearing oil supply - dummy cam modifications?

Nice!! Well, I guess with that recess carved around it, there's no point in it rotating (or being there at all, really) although you'd have to put something in it's place to direct the oil up, or it'd just blast out of the dummy cam chamber and leave the head dry (I think, haven't seen the guts of a...

Detailed piston info needed! Attn: gurus!

Okay, so if I want forged pistons for my G180W (primary blue rocker cove, ala ZZ/R I believe), I need to fill out this form. They say it's okay to just give as much info as possible, but I'd much rather give them all information possible. Custom forged pistons for a turbo motor are not something you...

Re: Twincam starter motor - working or not

Speaking of prices, how much would you like for one of the DOHC starters cul8r? And is there any chance you could ask a local post office how much to send an object the size of a tissue box, weighing about 6-7kg? A SOHC starter weighs dead on 5, apparently DOHCs are a tad more.

Re: Gemini g180w startermotor HELP!!!!

Just concluding this thread, I now own this engine, complete with twincam starter.

I'm curious about which exhaust chester288 was using though, the stock header hits the engine mount (but not the starter) for me.. Mate if you have any other twincam exhaust lying around let me know!!

Re: Speedway TD Coupe

For a speedway car I say build a serious G161Z. Port the hell out of the head, EFI it using a rodeo manifold. Have the head welded up for high compression (aim for 11:1) and run a giant cam, flycut the pistons if need be before assembly. Have the lower end balanced and make sure the whole setup's re...

Re: Oil Cooler?

Any tips on how to add an oil cooler to the system? There are three ways I've considered - making some kind of fitting to the oil filter to send the filtered oil through the cooler before being fed into the motor, but this would restrict flow unless an electronic oil pump was fitted inline.. Which c...

Basically you'll need to know the cc of the piston crown protruding from the block. This can also be calculated if you know the stock head cup cc, but if you knew that you could calculate the compression far easier anyway. I'm afraid I don't have numbers for you but if you know either of these thing...
