Yes exactly. What is the math for figuring what size the opening needs to be? Or is it just a guess?

Thanks!

Wow.

I LOVE seeing threads like this come back up after a 6 months to a year with good improvements.

That car is sexy. Makes me hella jealous even of how the exterior looks..

finished up the final bits(again) i planned to change a defective valve guide, but in the end i changed all of them, and put in new valves as the old ones were the stock valves, and have been machined a few times. time to change.

got everything back together yesterday. cranked it till i got oil pressure, tested the fuel system, and started it. fired up right away, everything as it should be, with no leaks of any kind.

anyway, here is what the engine bay looks like now, im considering myself done with the engine (for now.. )

Yeah that is a awesom setup he has with some great attention to detail. It reminds me of my buddies old S2000. He spent $2500 on hose and AN fittings, but his car was pretty sick and was featured on the cover of Modified Mag. He sold it though anyways man keep up the good work and look forward to some videos.
