Actually on that note what I really want to do is get ATI to build me a Super Damper for this thing... idk that I've seen anyone on here who has one.
Super nice work Mike, your alloy welding skills have increased like crazy! Soon everyone will be asking you to do intakes like Nathan lol. Those stainless lines are quite trick, big fan of hardlines over hoses. I've found my best success with cast has been with running a torch over it to cook out the junk, acetone, and hitting it with a die grinder to get down to good clean metal. Still always a toss up on the quality of the casting, b230 K-jet intake was by far the worst.
I'm sure I saw one on a Swedish build video recently with one from an SR that was adapted to fit the B230 crank. I'll try to find it.
At about 1:30 they show the adaptor and ATI damper.
Swedish banks probably offer financing for the ACM head. That would be fantastic to see one on a car here in the US.
When I picked it up the guy came out and said "hey, how do you install your bigger cams in this head?". I said "it's hard, why how did you do it?". Then he said "I didn't, because I was scared to screw something up". I had only thought of this the night before and was hoping they had some kind of nifty fixture to pull it down but no such luck. I could barely install the RSI 3 cam the normal way so knew there was no way this one was going down. I ran to the hardware store but couldn't find long enough studs, then Culberro reminded me that bolts are like long studs with heads...
with extreme care and very slowly I used the extend-o cam caps to work things down. It worked great but just felt kinda hairy... I may try and make something I can put in the press to support the whole thing and not rely on the threads in the head.
Kl racing also sells a cam installation tool, FWIW
I knew of it but hadn?t seen a pic thanks, Ian. Does it go under the head or clamp to a bench? Doesn?t look like it?s meant to be done with the head on.
Got one for sale?
