newprotest.org: NOT USING THE KA

NOT USING THE KA

October 18, 2005

I've opted to not use the KA head at this this. Having done the math, the KA head over the block I'm building will yield a sluggish 8.4:1 CR, which is fine for a daily driver, but not fine for the $350 pistons and the $75 head.

I've decided to use the A87 head I've got sitting on my L18 right now; it's got a grumbly Shadbolt cam in it, and it'll push the CR up to 9.5:1, which will give me a bit of oomph. I might go with the KA head in the future, when I feel like building a race car... but not now.

Anyhow, the 30-over pistons are in, as well as the rods... which means I'm ready to take everything into a shop and get it built.
