  • Cylinder head assembly started tonight. I finished installed all the valves, valve springs, retainers, keepers, and oil plugs on the front head. All I got to say is installing those keepers is a major PITA. Took me 2-1/2 hrs to clean, prep, and assembly the one head. Grant it I did have a few beers and I had to use my blast cabinet to clean off the plugs.

      Now all I have to do is order new lifters and I can complete the cylinder head assembly. Well that and do this to the rear head as well... ugh.

      • sooo clean!

        your going with an ST220 UIM and LIM right? are the heads port matched to the LIM? I know there's up to a 3/32 lip of aluminum head showing through the plastic LIM on my engine...

        I had to fight off the urge to hunt down my porting bit and soften that up some... but I think it'll happen in the future...

          • I would be very interested to see the power numbers before you go turbo on this setup...

            • the cams are custom turbo cams designed for a noble if I'm not mistaken, and he's got low compression diamond racing pistons. I doubt the unboosted numbers will be that great.

              FWIW turbo cams and NA cams are quite different...

              • I'm quite aware...my point being, what numbers does the engine alone make...without boost. Primary concerns leaning toward the effects of the head work and cams over traditional 3Ls in tq and HP curves as is.

                  To much, but you have to pay to play. ~$3600 which includes stage 2 port and polish, Mountune performance Noble cams, Mountune performance Noble valve springs, polished cut and tipped valves, and new lifters.

                  Well if someone wants to donate a y-pipe and cat delete pipe I'd be willing too. I don't have those anymore as i sold them off.

                      Those cams will add power especially over 5k. It is 250 HP without the boost, perhaps even more. With enough boost it could go above 500 easily. I believe he was shooting for 18 lbs of boost which will put 550 hp within reach. Rods, pistons and crank can support 600 plus.

                        i might be willing to if you can convince chris(csvt1339) to wait for his decat pipe :) since i'm hopefully installing the rb headers and y pipe soon...

                          Pretty much nailed it. However talking with some people they are slowing pushing me to go 20psi... guess we'll see when we start tuning... it is built for it so why not I suppose, but time will tell. Although it all depends on how well the car can put the power down.

                          I'm sure Chris would be cool with it, but we'll see when I actual am to the point where I can tune. It may be to far out for what his plans are.

                              • 20psi would be fun! Are you doing anything different to secure the heads than just 5 layer MLS gaskets and ARP bolts? The mystical 21psi "barrier" just concerns me a little....
