Heads up!

S13 SR20DET Head with Cams

C-Red have slowly been progressing on my engine. Recently I assisted in putting the head on - well I put the head in place because Roy had a bad back, then he put the ARP head bolts in a tightened to spec. Since then, the cams have now been dropped in - now these are a used set of cams and an unknown brand at this stage. Specs are 264deg duration and 11.8mm lift on both intake and exhaust. Tomei Rocker Arm Stoppers and Tomei Type A valve springs have been installed along with adjustable cam sprockets/gears too.

All is starting to look pretty good. I also found out this morning that Earls do make a black anodized version of all their hose fittings so will be using these whenever I need braided hose connections such as for oil and water lines on turbo and oil cooler etc. Will be looking to send off all the nickel plated bits to be redone soon so all looks brand new.

Pics of the engine so far:

Still to be done on the engine side will be the GReddy Plenum (which is on its way). The plenum and rocker cover will be red wrinkle/crackle coated (ala Ferrari Testarossa) and the nickel plated bits redone then those parts can be bolted back on. Damn it's a long road.

Ford schmord... I think you'll find that the Japs do most things twice as well as the Yanks, and therefore only need half the cylinders. :-P

What colour will your cooler pipes be Brendan? Black, I hope. :-)

Yep, more than likely the cooler pipes will be black. Probably get them powdercoated.
