Well guys, I don't just gather my info from forums, I like to read as much as I can about whatever it is I'm trying to learn too. That's exactly what I've been doing for the past few day. Only thing that sucks is that (the majority of the time) you can't just ask the author a question, that's where I rely on forums and guys who know more than me to help me out.Carnut1 wrote:0617171327c.jpgI would like some feedback on this texture. D.V.'s E7Te heads I am finishing up. Same finish on exhaust, intake and chambers. Why do I use the same finish on all three at this point? I am able to blend my curves pretty well with this size and style, beat up burr. So, I only need to roll my chamber edge and this chamber is done unless I see something that could use more attention. I feel this surface helps atomization a bit on intake, has a slight golf ball surface which reduces airflow resistance. On the chamber can still help atomization by breaking up any liquid fuel that enters chamber, the finish is smooth enough I feel it will not have hot spots that may cause detonation or preignition and has a bit of heat reflecton ability due to the tiny scalops. Exhaust port will get same finish due to slight airflow resistance reduction due to golfball effect and intake and exhaust will get ssr polishing with sandcloth. Input welcome. Thanks, Charlie
So I'm still curious about this porting job and the guides being ground flush to the wall. I understand that you said this was done for runner volume, but a few things:
1: Wouldn't having JUST the valve stem exposed cause more turbulence than the gained port volume is worth?
2: If the answer to #1 is "No", why wouldn't you flush grind ALL guides when porting?
Thanks again. I'm sure I'll have more questions later. Gotta go to church. Later!
