engines ARE A SYSTEM<ALL PARTS OF THAT SYSTEM MUST MATCH FOR BEST RESULTS
this HIGHLY RESTICTIVE STOCK INTAKE
designed to run at idel, thru 4500rpm and the restrective stock heads and cam are your problem
HERES the type of flow numbers a stock head flows (YOUR HEADS ARE WORSE)
heres the 190cc-195cc AFR heads which I advise
there will be VERY LITTLE differance in low rpm tq between the 180cc and 195cc intake ports, you can always use the AFR 190cc heads as they flow very similar flow numbers to the 195cc but in any case its CROSS sectional area not port volume that controlls the air speeds in any case theres only about a 8% differance in air flow speed which will mean the torque curve will move only about 350 rpm higher max between the 195cc and 180cc , which because the intake and cam plus heads flow so much better will be almost non-detectable in that youll all ready be far high in both torque and hp at any rpm level by 3000rpm as to make the old stock hp/tq a joke by that rpm level
DD2000 guesses at a hp/ tq of 420hp/425 tq with the heads,SY1 intake ,cam and better compression from the heads
now thats not likely but that easy 100-115hp improvement is a cinch to get PROVIDED YOU INSTALL THE COMPLETE COMBO
of either 190cc heads/195cc intake port 68cc chamber (BETTER) cam,modified SY1 and thin head gasket, look call AFR ask them if they think their heads, a SY1 intake and a CRANE 114142 cam plus a slight boost in compression can give your car a 115hp boost over the stock engine,
BTW the AFR part# is 1018 for the 190cc and they cost about $1250 and they also estimate that youll be gaining WELL OVER 150hp
sure the milder cam (crane #114132) I said runs well with the modified cross fire SY1 will cost some hp (compared to the (CRANE#114142)but youll see the diffeance, and remember the SY1 is made to produce more power than a single carb intake! THE MAX REASONABLE STREET COMBO!!!"A MODIFED EDELBROCK SY1 WITH CUSTOM TOP MATCHED TO 190CCor 195CC AFR HEADS CRANE 114142 CAM -- AND add a 383 high 10:1 cpr engine kit"
that IS the right combo, right??
yes your correct,BTW Ill save you the math, youll need to get the 10:1 cpr flat top piston 383 kit for the street, and the 74cc combustion chambers AFR 190cc HEADS with L98 spark plug angles if you intend to run high test gas you find everywhere (some is lousy quality) and get the head gasket as close to .018-.022 as you can for correct quench
fyi DD-2000 and EA pro both guess at OVER a 115 hp improvement at the rear wheels, having done this type mod in the past Im reasonably sure thats UNDERESTIMATED for those listed changes
HERES THE ANSWER for the HIGHLY RESTRICTIVE INTAKE that can support 470hp ITS A EDELBROCK SY1 WITH CUSTOM LID[/b]
So a couple weeks ago I picked up a 1995 LT1 C4 Corvette. 137000 miles automatic. Completely stock. Test drove it and it ran great. Drove it a couple days and everything was great. Once getting it home I was cleaning it up and cleaned the engine. Yes i now know not to get the optispark wet. The...
I have an 86 and I would like to have a blue tooth scanner that I can read with my windows 8 phone or a small tablet. General readout things, oil pressure temp etc
I can purchase an adaptor cable to convert OBD1 to OBD2 and then a blue tooth scanner, but my Questions are:
1. Does it work?
Hey guys , I am in the middle of a rough idle work up. Removing the passenger side injector cover , I immediately noticed a short vacuum line that was not connected to anything. Can you please tell if it is normal. I found info on LT1 but little on the 96 LT4
It is the hose with red tube stuck...
Hi, I have a 1987 Vette. It is running very rich, blows black smoke rich, and when it begins to warm up it starts to run rough and acts like its loading up. When you give it some Rpm's it gets a miss and when returned to idle it dies. Now after letting it sit and coming back to mess with it, it...
I'm inheriting a C4 from an uncle. It's an '87(?) with a 4+3 and a soft top. The cloth is in bad shape and I suspect even the convertible frame needs replacement. Rather than spend the time and money, since I will be using this car for track/hillclimb/autocross duty, I'd prefer to use a...
