Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

I was mostly only curious as I found the wrong lifter called out and thought maybe the listed spring was incorrect as well. I have given my cyl head guy free run to choose the valves/springs/retainers that will go in the head. He mentioned possibly dropping stem diameter, and beehive or conical spri...

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

A profile with an .050” intake duration in the low to mid 240s will make good power between 7000 and 7500 rpm. An exhaust duration with 8 to 10 degrees less duration than the intake with a 114 degree LSA will be more compatible with a log style exhaust manifold. I read, "Get the Crow cam and s...

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

That is a lot of info to process, thank you. The grind is just like Mike1157's. Do you have his specs handy? I was able to find where he listed the lift(.529/.559) but have not found duration or LCA numbers yet. Regarding pmuller, he pretty much called out the first cam before I even emailed any ven...

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

Which roller rockers fit the head after the stud conversion. BBC? It is noted in several places on the AUS forums that the Cleveland 1.73:1 roller rockers fit the crossflow head. I also read where mike1157 had to switch to a 1.75:1 due to valvetrain geometry issues. I think those are a BBC applicat...

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

If I was starting from scratch there is no doubt I would be specing pistons around the 1jz rod! The whole thought process for this engine started with a good deal on a built engine. It has already evolved mentally thru a log-ectomy and now into a full cylinder head swap/build. It is very easy for me...

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

Indeed, the plan is to build a divided log manifold. The head originally had pedestal rockers. We are converting it to studs and guide plates to run adjustable roller rockers. I told him I want chromoly bodied rockers and 3/8" push rods for stability and durability. We can chase weight in other...

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

Re: Turbo US200 Crossflow

Did you look at the compressor map for the HX52? Good port work, big cam, and lots of RPM are all on the table for this build as well as a paired manifold to take advantage of the split scroll turbine housing. Do you have the compressor map available to share? I have not been able to find it yet, o...

Re: Is it possible to put a roller cam in a small block six?

I have been re-reading the Gila Monster threads and also lightly searching AUS forums. I haven't seen any of the others with roller cams mention cutting out the block like Mike1157 had to do. Are the wider AUS blocks wide enough to get the BBF lifters in and linked up, or have I not dug deep enough ...
