Re: Gen 1 SBC oil filter bypass

I agree that a 2qt filter is a good idea when doing it. But I have done it plenty of times with a 1qt filter.

Re: Straight through mufflers

“A” would be correct, but for now it’s just a temporary exhaust system. I’m going to add a crossover of some sort, probably an X pipe My car went from true separate duals with a single straight thru muffler on both sides to this, also with straight thru mufflers, and the sound improved dramatically...

Re: SAM's SB2 At The EMC And The REC

Screenshot (10).png This is SAMS highest peak hp pull from the event. 788 like Rocket mentioned earlier. Just curious ... did that happen in the "run-off" after their qualifying dyno session...? No I have all the pulls prior to the "run off"...so maybe they made more than that during that. I don't ...

Re: SAM's SB2 At The EMC And The REC

The cool thing about a dyno competition is that everyone competes on the same dyno regardless of how it reads... If you cant cut the mustard, there are no excuses or reasons to reference other dyno's.(although some make plenty)

Re: Applying the DV 128 formula on a Supercharged engine

Billy Godbold and another Kenny Dutweiler Two awesome podcasts. And Godbold evens shows humility in terms of picking lobes, valve events, centerlines. The kind of humility that comes from being around a lot and knowing a lot. There is definitely some Dunning-Kruger in the performance world. :lol: I...

Re: Applying the DV 128 formula on a Supercharged engine

Not disagreeing with but,,, Keep in mind the era of the information. A lot of it was human intuition, not measured data back then. Pressure measuring equipment was rare. I agree. I talked to Brookshire a bunch over the years, he was always willing to talk, which was really cool. I liked hearing all...

Re: Oil Smoke driving me crazy

My sbc in the special needs thread, I put new rings in for it smoking badly on the dyno. I was playing with very low ring tensions, so I just assumed that was the culprit. New rings, hone, bearings, everything....back on dyno...smoke is back. Put a vacuum pump on it, wouldn't really pull any vacuum....

Nice job!
Thanks. They could have been nicer as far as the Tig welds go. A friend did all that, and he was a little rusty. It's something he once did daily, but only occasionally now. So you can tell which header he did the collectors on first :lol: . But I'm pretty happy with them overall.

Re: Another "How much will it make?" Project "Special Needs"

Chad, They look really ,fitment good? I can't remember if you dynoed engine with 4 into 1 or tri-y or both. Great to see you chipping away on the malibu :D I trial fitted them a couple times, changed some things, tweaked etc...before having them coated. I had a tube pretty much up against the colum...

Who made the headers?

They started out as Hedman 65101. Different collectors, v bands, 02 bungs added, along with a couple slight relocations of tubes and fitting to the exhaust ports.
