Re: High compression pistons?

Duration is much more of a factor in PTV than lift since the valves are closest to the pistons around 10 degrees before and after TDC. The only way to really know what your PTV is is to measure it after the cam is installed. Unless you know someone with a very similar cam and everything else is the ...

Re: High compression pistons?

I'm at about 11.2:1 after milling 0.020" with 0.040" head gaskets. Lots of guys mill 0.030" with no problems. Don't worry about valve reliefs reducing compression. The reduction in chamber volume is huge compared to the valve reliefs, meaning that if you mill x and cut valve reliefs x deep, you're s...

Re: High compression pistons?

You can easily get over 10.8 with milling and thinner head gaskets. What kind of compression are you looking for?

Re: High compression pistons?

Most guys who build LS engines are cheap and never even touch their bottom ends, so milling heads the is how they bump compression. There should be tons of pistons available, though. You can likely get all the compression you can handle with pump gas by milling the heads and maybe fly cutting. What ...

Re: GM's 20 regret making and discontinuing

"10 sports cars GM probably regrets making"

The article is just the author's opinions. It doesn't sound like any of the information actually came from GM.

I love how they mentioned a 1978 Chevrolet Chevelle SS and show a 64. lol. I don't think there ever was a 78 Chevelle. Pretty weak article.

Re: SS Front end conversion

Oh god, please don't. If you reaaaaly wanted to, though, you need to change everything. Just look at the front of each car. Everything you see that looks different will have to be changed... and maybe even stuff that you can't see. In my opinion, it would be a huge waste of money and you'll end up w...

Re: 3:27 Chevy SS Diff' vs. 3:45 Camaro

An easy way to remember what's important is that the 2010-2015 Camaro LSDs are the only ones worth installing.

Re: 3:27 Chevy SS Diff' vs. 3:45 Camaro

You can easily do the math to see how much more 3.45s will rev, but I'll tell you, you'll never even think about it once they're in. You have a thing called overdrive. Two gears of it, actually.
