I run 11:1 on pump gas, so 10:1 is not that big of a deal.  Then again I tune cars for a living.  Can you get and keep yours in tune?


 38/38 will have synchronous throttle plates, not progressive linkage opening 1 barrel at a time.  Its basically a vertical DCOE, almost.  Its a solid "middle ground" carb choice between a SUs and 2 DCOEs.  I rate a DGV almost as low as the stock carb.

I don't know much about those intakes, but I'm guessing the port size is the difference?  Port it out.

Those are Hitachis.  The float bowls are different from SUs.  Either way you'll love them.  Try Paltech for a rebuild or parts.  http://www.paltech1.com/id10.html

In Topic: Adjustable cam gear in US???

The Kameari gear should arrive today.  BTW $167 with 2 day shipping from RHD Japan.  It took them 3 days for them to ship however, so 6 days total, ordered over the weekend.

I just spent the last couple hours mapping out cam and events, using a new Cloyes chain, tensioners, and the 8-hole gear.  I found that holes "A" and "B" seem promising at 111, 114 intake centerline.  Given the cam numbers, which are not what I ordered nor what Schneider put on the cam card, 114 looks the best.  Lower duration, lower lift, lower power.  Sad.  Frustrating.  This won't let us set a record, unless we get everything else right.  It totally screws with the port work on the head too.  Its a $10,000 mistake as the whole trip out to Bonneville was relying on my cam numbers as part of the equation.  At this point there's no way to have a cam ground, heat treated, and set up for our head in time.  Roughly 100 days including assembly, valve shimming, dyno tuning, etc...   I guess we have a goal for next year.   :poop:
