Hey Eric, did you use cradle spacers to lower the motor down or no? I picked up a WBS full size IC and I'm thinkin about getting them and hopefully avoiding any hood clearance concerns, unless you used them and still needed more..?

No cradle spacers. I did have to trim a little of the hood inner skin.

Finally got around to fixing the vid of my warm up lap from summer at Putnam Park... The full thread was merged with the racing and kill section

So in my build with the Bronco's BB460, I met a nice guy who works for Shuemacher Racing on their engineering crew. I mentioned the Riv and what I have done and he said he will help me out on the head work on Riv considering that's one of the few things I haven't really touched yet. He has a full flow station and every bit of equipment to help me out. I am going to drop off a set of spare heads to him next week. My question for you guys is; does anybody have any numbers of their aftermarket heads, any hints or tricks that seem to work well, and any portion of the heads to take special care on (for you that have experimented with your own), etc...

On a side note, springs are being tested on the suspension dyno this week and should be made next week. I will let everybody know when they are done and what costs might be. I was initially going for a adjustable coil (sleave) but will wait for advice from my buddy.

Did I mention I love living in the racing capital of the world?... If you look you can find people who can do anything!

Eric's BACK!

INTENSE has public flow numbers.
It's hard to explain much in porting techniques without pictures but I learned a good bit while comparing the IS3 heads I just got to a Alex's take-off home ports. The exhaust ports are routine enough for a professional. The intakes on my IS3's are opened up quite a bit actually - a little past the gaskets even on some sides and they rounded the corners big time. Don't be afraid to cut right into the injector bosses. Intense cuts right the f*** through them like they aren't even there. The only other big thing we noticed is that on the intakes, be careful not to go overboard porting deep into the runner where the valve stem shrouds and splits the charge around the valve. You don't want to take material off there and make it a straight shot past the valve.

For valves, you can use thinserts, full size bronze guides, or knurl and ream - all work fine.

Also, the ported exhaust ports on both heads I looked at open up a tad wider than a 1 5/8" header primary on one side so you definitely want to check that yourself and if necessary, grind that area of the header flange just to smooth the transition. 1 3/4" headers are fine as is.
