CYLINDER HEADS

PORTING - STREET/STRIP

WEATHER ITS A STOCK CASTING OR AFTERMARKET HEAD, GASKET MATCHING AND BOWL WORK CAN GET YOU EXTRA H.P. & TOURQUE.

RACE PORTING

THIS IS THE BASIC NECESSITY FOR MOST RACERS FOR GOOD REASON. THERE IS POWER TO BE GAINED AND WITHOUT THIS TYPE OF PORTING YOUR REALLY LETTING YOUR COMPETITION PASS YOU BY.

MAX EFFORT

THIS IS WHERE OUR PASSION FOR WHAT WE DO COMES TO LIFE. GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR COMBO STARTS WITH THE INDUCTION. COUNTLESS HOURS OF GRINDING, FLOW TESTING AND EXPERIENCE GOES INTO YOUR HEADS.

HEAD & INTAKE

PORTIG YOUR HEADS & INTAKE TOGETHER ALLOW TWO THINGS TO HAPPEN. ONE, MAKING SURE THE PROPER TAPER  IS PRESSENT. TWO, MAKING SURE THE PROPER CROSS SECTION IS CONSISTANT THROUGHOUT THE INTAKE TRACK.

CFM / CSA

ALTOUGH CFM NUMBERS ARE IMPORTANT, THEY ARENT THE ONLY THING TO LOOK AT WHEN CHOOSING A CYLINDER HEAD. CROS SECTION IS "KING". SIZE & SHAPE ARE JUST AS IMPORTANT. 

VALVE JOB / VALVE SHAPE

THE VALVE JOB IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF PUZZLE. THE SAET AREA IS FULL OF ACTION AND IS THE LAST AREA THAT CONTROLS HOW AIR & FUEL ENTERS THE CHAMBER INTO THE CYLINDER.   "POWER"

H.P. - HORSE POWER

EVERY RACER WANTS IT !

BUT WHATS NEEDED TO GET THERE?

EXPERIENCE  PLAYS A BIG ROLL. ITS NOT JUST CFM AND WE WILL NEVER SELL YOU ON THAT.  EVEN TODAY ITS STILL THE "COMBINATION" THAT'S  WINNING.

HOW THE INDUCTION MAKES H.P.

WE ALL SEE IT ADVERTISED, "410CFM". BUT WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN?

IT DOES HAVE ITS PLACE. BUT TO JUST LOOK AT ONLY THAT WILL GET YOU INTROUBLE. CROSS SECTION HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE EQUATION. THE ENGINE IS AN AIR PUMP. IT NEEDS TO TAKE IN AS MUCH AIR AS POSSIBLE. IT ALSO HAS TO GET IT OUT. THIS MAKES THE INDUCTION SYSTEM THE MOST IMPORTANT PART.


PORTING/RESTRICTION

PORTING IS A TERM USED FOR THE INDUSTRY. BUT WHAT IS IT?

WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO IS PROMOTE THE BEST WAY TO GET AIR & FUEL INTO THE CYLINDER! THIS IS WHERE WE MAKE POWER FROM.

FINDING THE RESTRICTION AND MAKE IT AS LEAST RESTRICTING AS POSSIBLE.


AIR SPEED/FPS

A FLOW BENCH IS JUST A TOOL. IT IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE GUY RUNNING IT. MOST OF THE TOP GUYS KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH JUST ABOUT ANY PORT. MOST OF US CAN DO IT WITHOUT A FLOW BENCH. BUT HOW WOULD WE GAUGE IT AND HAVE A STANDARD TO MEASURE IT BY?

WE USE THE FLOW BENCH TO HELP GUAGE FLOW AND AIR SPEED.

AIR SPEED IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT. TO HIGH AND THE PORT IS OUT OF CONTROL. TO LOW AND WE CANT GET THE AIR IN TO MAKE ANY ACCELERATION. 

ACCELERATION

THIS IS WHAT WINS RACES!  

POWER VS. ACCELLERATION

DYNO SHEETS WITH BIG NUMBERS ARE GREAT. BUT WHAT DO THEY MEAN?

THE DYNO IS ALSO JUST A TOOL. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE INFO IT GIVES YOU. 

RPM RANGE & SWEEP  HELPS TELL THE STORY.
