Yeah that old valve-in-piston tech never runs right.

actually not, 25cm2 hot side is really good for 4200cc
I´ve been tested hx55 on bmw 4.0 engine and it made 550kw 800Nm from wheels with only 1.3 bar of boost and woke up nicely

Holy Crap, That is too big for my 5.9L Cummins. But I am sure your redline is much higher than 3200RPM. Cant wait to see how this works for you. Should make some serious power 600hp plus.

Engine should be 95% done and I´m thinking about putting it to body and try to race on sunday :D (half legal season opening event)
I have 2 days....needs all the cooling system because radiator will go to front end now. Needs new fuel system for ethanol. Some wires and tune. All kind of liquids and putting together new custom made strongest halfshafts.

Wow! What a "gooser" for that engine. I hope only the wrinkle wall tires wrinkle not everything else :shock: :lol: .
