Head Job

Have just had word from Roy at C-Red that the head is now back from the machinest. While there the new exhaust valve guides were fitted along with some stiffer valve springs (Tomei Type A 7500RPM limit). The camshafts being used have a 260deg duration with 11.8mm left on both intake and exhaust side. A Tomei Rocker Arm Stopper (RAS) Kit will be fitted and the head screwed on with a Tomei 1.5mm Metal Head Gasket being used as the meat filler. Will get some pics of the setup the next time I'm in at the workshop.

It's envisaged that this setup, along with the previously mentioned ported intake and exhaust ports should make use of the rest of the setup being bolted in place.

Yay, finally some movement, although it'll have to slow for a bit while I get some cash together to get the GReddy Plenum and then have the plenum and rocker cover done up in red crackle paint (as per FJ20ET style).

GReddy Plenum

Going all the way then are we? Damn they're expensive but sooo bling + more, of-course :P

Yeah, it's for a bit of bling of course. It's nice when you lift the bonnet and see it there. Oh, and for the flow characteristics for up on high.
