Re: Request for timing table

@NukeKS14 any chance of the upload? Anyone else as well feel free to get involved. The reason for the ask is that as you can see from above it looks like retarded on boost I think and also possibly under 0psi. My engine CR is low in the low 7's. I recently sorted the valve timing out (running BC cam...

Re: KA-T 2.4 need to re-torque head

I like to keep things updated. The gasket/head was no good in the end. Had to do the right thing and get it skimmed and I put a felpro on and so far so good.

That is all now resolved and all the other issues like BC cams not set properly was running JWT sprockets but on default position. Turbo gt30-76r so only a t3. If you se...

Cannot find the cosworth gasket. Gone for felpro, only running 22psi hopefully the ARP studs with this gasket will suffice. If I read correctly others have used timecerts and machined the arp nuts to fit the limted space in the head? TBH others have standard bottom end and got away with around what ...

Hi, recently had to take the cams out for headgasket tighten.
