Re: Still building 7AGEs?

doubt any normally aspirated 'stroker A' build is gonna stay stock head stock cam add it all up and most will still compare it to other available oe 1.8 & 2.0 options For diehards, cost probably won't matter I wish toyota offered a simple compact 2.0L (3SG or Beams, no). A 'basic' 7AG seems cap...

Re: OST Cylinder Head Porting Services

That looks absolutely fantastic! I am not sure about the way to go... At the moment, I would like to do the following: I did cylinder head porting and combustion chamber deburring on my Bigport-head. Finally measured the chamber volume - all equal now. I want to install some CatCams with IN 267° / ...

Re: Still building 7AGEs?

Re: Still building 7AGEs?

Let's hear about those 7AGEs. I've built a few of these for others, still haven't put mine together, moved several times in the past years. Not hearing much about the 7AGE any more, wondering if people are still doing this hybrid build. There is a facebook group for 7AG builds.... not so uncommon. ...

Re: Lit'lphant - Toyota's Hemi V8

Intake looks really well, exhaust I guess you can improve the angle a bit. Am I wrong in thinking these are nice looking ports for an oem head? Exhaust short side radius looks like it could use a little work but the intake looks spot on. Considering the age of the design, and the casting techniques...

Nicely done! I always thought the manufacturers should have used threaded fitting instead of pressed-in tubes.

20V shim tolerances are pretty bad. I've now had new, as well as old shims, and in some cases the shims vary by as much as .001" (up to as much as +, or - .0005" either way). I have purchased shims now from a supplier here in the USA, as well as directly from Japan. http://ost.ebeans.ch/al...
