Extrude honing is a tad expensive for what it is with this car. It might work with the manifold, but the heads have easy access for porting.

Magic

I will also be performing another feet of magic by finding a brand new set of OEM headgaskets and valve guides for the motor

(on order as we speak)

A friend of mine has an ea engine he used on his plane, I don't know what size it is, but, it is turbo, and fully forged internals, only used the turbo to keep it at 0lb vacuum/boost. Less than 50 hours on the engine. Let me know if you're interested, I'll get more info.

I can't use it cause of the whole exhaust port issue.

Just took my engine/heads/etc. to a machine shop.

Basically it looks like it will be cheap to fit the Weber manifold, cheaper than buying another 32/36 carb and running the stock manifold!

I just need a better measurement of exactly how much needs to be shaved from the heads... I think someone posted that once, let me see if I can find it (its probably going to be 4mm or 2/16")

Just found these on Youtube, figured i'd share them:





Thats the weber manifold/carb on there, so its probably a sport motor. I think this is the guy who has a Japanese Blog going about FF-1 builds.

Alright, it looks like I only need about 1/16" or 2mm shaved from each head... Any experts out there think thats manageable? Is there anything else I should be concerned about when doing this?

As you can see, the weber installs perfectly without headgaskets.

So ya, 2mm is what needs to come off, either by machining or by a thinner headgasket and less machining.

would it be possible to deck the block slightly to prevent removing so much from the heads? If all you need is 2mm total, maybe you could do .5mm from each head and .5mm from each side of the block.

Its 4mm total. 2mm from each side.

Its easier to do the heads cause they have the room to work with. The block, not so much.
