The engine bay is going to look really nice when your done.
More details on the planned engine mods...
Thanks I cant wait to see it all put together, so far anyone I showed the red to in person has went nuts over it lol
Engine mods... hmm to start with I will explain how I ended up doing all of this lol. I went to install the Kook's headers on the car and when I pulled them off I noticed how extremely restricted the exhaust ports were. I then decided to pull the heads and port the exhaust and intake since I can do it myself.
So away I go pulling it apart, I then get to thinking hmmm.... a few more bolts and I can put the cam in now instead of waiting a year, so I got to talking to Kirk and decided to order his stage 2.5 non DOD cam package. I sent the heads to my local machinist and got him to do a 3 angle CNC valve job on them. So far I have ported the throttle body, and the exhaust on 1 head (took 6 hours to do just the exhaust on 1 head
) doing the other one today and hopefully the intake on both. As for the engine bay mods, I decided that because the oven to bake our powder coat was sitting beside the car... and I figured if coat some stuff, liked the color and then coated a lot more stuff lol. I also tried 1 caliper last night with a heat dispersant we have that works awesome on the backside to cool the brakes and mirror red powder on the front. It turned out great and am now doing the other 3
I am now thinking of coating some internal engine parts... combustion chamber, valves, maybe the valve springs. The coatings keep parts cooler by up to 50%, have less friction and shed oil. Why is this good? because shedding oil off parts will keep them cooler increasing performance by not having any more hot oil on them then whats needed. Less friction lets them do their job much easier. If you coat every engine part.. crank, camshaft, pistons, rods, valves, combustion chamber, cylinders, ports, valve springs, oil pan you can get gains of up to 14%.
Bit long but I wanted to explain why I am doing what im doing
