Thanks Micah. I had 0.030" in my head from a read I did a few months back that I can't find anymore. I will clay for sure.
Rod ratio of 1.67 to be exact.
(5.180/3.11) and yep a 2.35l stroker.
I will have to take coating into account in my calculation. Gold ceramic on the piston tops and thermal barrier coating on the valve faces (0.002" to 0.003").
My Cometic HG are 0.027" thick. That's the thickness once the heads are torqued right?
Do you have a number for the quench? again I 've read something about this last year....can't find it.
BTW, I will receive my Wiseco (113g) piston rist pins DLC coated in about two weeks.
I will post pictures in my DLC coating thread.
Next will be the cams and bucket contact surfaces, DLC coated.
