Intake side.... and chambers now shaped Ports themselves have changed very little, only a tiny bit of blending, while the bowls and seats got worked - this is to help increase port velocity. http://ost.ebeans.ch/albums/userpics/10005/intake_ports_2_and_4_down_2_panel.jpg http://ost.ebeans.ch/albums/...

I have a 20v black top block, with oil squirters.
Do i need the intake side oil drain, or cap it?

recommend you run the drain... especially in a longitudinal layout.

you could put a bung in the oil pan... try to keep it higher then the oil level

actually that isn't right. F/A cranks were never 40mm, only OEM cranks,(early ones at that), and early HKS stroker cranks use 40 mm rod journals. The F/A cranks were always 42mm. And yes, the TRD wrist pin size would be 19mm
