Re: Exhaust recommendations

In my experience, Powerflow items themselves actually restrict power! When you think how much time and money goes into designing an exhaust system for a specific car, how good are custom made systems and do they really work that well :? Stock exhaust manifolds and 2x 2.5" marine grade stainess...

Re: Use Allen Heads

You could use Allen head (socket hex head) bolts. They need to be 10mm x1.0 pitch. They aren't easy to find but I found them somewhere as I have four in my desk drawer. I'll try to find out where they came from here in the States. I presume you are in the States? Don Remember to use extra high tens...

Re: 2.8 Camshafts and timing gear

V6T21 Is one of the best cams there is available if you want power and torque. Valve duration is perfect there is no overlap in that cam type. I am making over 600nm torque at 4900rpm and fuel economy is pretty good at 1800 to 2200rpm area. It is drive-able at 1600+rpm. Idle at 900 to 1000rpm. Avera...

Re: Oil change

I would suggest to use Mobil Peaklife (rallyformula) 5W-50 It has lots of ZDDP and its fully synthetic. Its good for camshaft and rockers, especially for older engine and to car that doesnt' have catalytist converters. ZDDP reduces alot catalytist converters lifetime. Thats why the won't use ZDDP a...

Where to get good fuel pressure gauge?

I would like to know if there is fuel pressure gauge that is liquid filled and has only bar measurement
and area of 0 to 7.5 or 10 bar. Preferably with 1/8" npt connection. No electric gauges.

I have been looking one for quite a long time. If someone know where to ask thats good too.
