Re: Future Build Components

I was going to have some head work done as well, port matching and to remove all the unnecessary material like I've seen on one of 'oldeskewltoy' threads somewhere. Got a quote for a stage 1 head (need to look into whatever that covers) for £450. Would removing that material to increase the flow ai...

Do you guys know how much a 4AGZE balanced and polished crankshaft is worth?

Re: Future Build Components

We also have our valve springs. They are a little cheaper and great for most cams up to about 10mm. http://www.matrixgarage.com/products/matrix-garage-16v-valve-springs You do however want to be careful with oversized valves. People often don't realize how much the mass of a valve effects it. Overs...

Yeah I know about the crank in that block, I'd just rather not remove my engine and not be able to use the car whilst I'm building the engine is all plus it's a free engine. I have been told it's not typical but it can still take good power through it. Plus it's coming from a very reputable source s...

Headers

Are there any decent headers out there for the MR2? I can have the 20v modified but it seems like a lot of work and 20valvers aren't very common in the UK.

I can have someone bring one over to the UK from the States for me, but I am not keen on the OBX quality...

Any ideas?

Re: TVIS & Bigger Cams

As suggested you might try playing with the cam timing. Those are tiny cams so with your small compression bump the low end should feel similar to stock. this......... although the intake cam duration is a bit more then "tiny" at 230 degrees duration @ .050"(1.2mm) this cam is closer...

Re: TVIS & Bigger Cams

The TVIS should always be a benefit to low end. The only reason to remove it is when the whole intake becomes such a restriction to top end performance that it's worth sacrificing the low end losses for much more top end with a completely different manifold setup or ITBs. I've just got sod all low ...

Hi,

Does this have the 42mm Crankshaft?

If so, how much plus shipping for the crankshaft to the UK?

If you don't want to split it, I understand

I'm still running 8.5mm / 9.0mm cams on stock OEM springs However have recently learnt I bent 8 intake valves when the belt snapped . How many miles?? if it was before 30,000, then it MIGHT be because you were so close to spring bind that it added extra stress to the belt.... not saying that is why...
