first off: sorry for the novel. i like long posts.
kstar 70 old version
head is new, for the 70 kit, but not hihicomp.
ports chamfered, piston and cylinder cleaned up
needle bearing crank (86 e50)
bing 15, 15 intake (square port)
modified treats hi-flo foamy intake
timing full advance w/o moding the stator plate
proma circuit pipe
tecno estoril baffle, a lil leaky
16 x 40 gearing
sea level (downtown cleveland)
84 jet, when i started tuning i had no baffle
no baffle, needle all the way rich = lots of 4 stroking
no baffle, needle 1 notch from the top = snappy!
baffle, needle all the way lean = wow.
clutch engages at 20 mph, hits the pipe at 30, hits a wall at 42-44 mph.
i'm affraid that with the 16x40 gearing i'm gonna blow it up if i keep going to 40ish, while i break it in. i bought the kit used, previous owner chamfered ports and ran it for ? roffman cleaned up the piston and cyl, casematched it, advanced and set the timing, put on the 3 shoe, basicly built the engine.
so where i live (downtown cleveland) lots of stop n go, lots of hills, hence the 16x40 gearing. i think i'm gonna get a 17, i have an 18 but i think its too tall. my main concern, of course, is that I DONT WANT TO BLOW UP THE KIT.
so, MA Perf forum dudes, please advise.
special thanks to roffman for correcting all of my noob mistakes and being a really cool dude in general. special thanks to Rob P for convincing me to kit the magnum. special thanks to the MA performance forum, my favorite forum ever.
