Re: OST-045: 5AGTE.... again ;)

Amazing work as always. How the heck do you get those shallow coolant passages around the chambers so clean?

Re: 4age on bike carbs

would like see how are you planning to hold the magnetic sensor, to feed the NODIZ thanks It's being made right now. Here's what I did.

Re: 4age PCV how does it work

So basically it won't work because there is too much vacuum in the intake manifold?

What if I add an actual pcv valve somewhere before the intake manfiold?

Re: 4age PCV how does it work

Alright, definitely makes more sense. Took me forever to figure out the system counting down from atmospheric pressure. So, any thoughts on my pcv system for the bike carb conversion? "So for my bike carbed 4age setup I am thinking about having a hose from the cam cover breather go to a catch c...

Re: 4age PCV how does it work

Thanks guys it's clear now. What they were essentially trying to do is to separate the vapors from the oil itself. That damn complicated baffle inside the cam cover finally makes sense. It's there to help prevent oil getting picked up. They didn't plug the pcv hose into the manifold itself because t...

4age PCV how does it work

Was looking at the intake manifold today and got curious. I always thought that outlet for the pcv on the intake manifold is simply open on the other end, i.e. the crankcase vapors go to the manifold, but they don't, rather they seem to end up somewhere in the throttle body? Why is that? And why doe...

Temperature sender question

Just a quick question. I have been looking at the ECU pinouts to try and figure out the temp sender and temp gauge and their wiring. As far as I figure I don't need the stock ECU in order to keep the coolant temperature gauge working properly. All I need is the temp sender and it's connection to the...

Re: head work or bottom end?

I'm really no expert when compared to some of the guys on this forum, but I think working on the block and working on the head really go hand in hand and separating them is weird. A lot of compression without the right cams makes no sense, just like aggressive cams with stock compression also don't ...

Look at that beautiful power curve. Only a supercharged 4age can have that. It's rising so aggressively right from the bottom! This must be a blast to drive. Amazing build right from start to finish.

Re: 4age on bike carbs

Some of the late 90s bike carbs actually do have TPS. I have no idea why but they do. For example 1999 kawasaki zx6r carbs already have a tps on them. The question is whether it can be made to work with our stock ECU. Will probably have to buy a set of those carbs or at least a tps from them to know...
