    KA with sidedrafts

    Its the thackery washers that redline gives you with a cannon intake that are poop. Those rubber insulators are good. When my plastic o ring holders die ill be switching to those.

    Fuck these things they just crack and fall off then your tune goes to shit

    When your done monkeying around you should weld those two intake halves together to make one and ditch the couplers. Other than that i approve of all. The weber honk is addicting
  4. i remember my 620 had no front bar on it, i think it would have driven a hell of alot nicer with one. (it would roll over and pick up a rear tire) I dont think you'd need a rear bar on one of these unless you took some leafs out or something.
  5. the cannon ones have tiny ports as cast. may be good on a stockish l16 or stock motor but on something hot it requires alot of hogging out. the pierce one has huge runners as cast. i think the cannon would probibly work better on a stockish motor vs the pierce setup.

    Piston id help

    i agree with mike
  7. Tom1200, what rear shocks are you using in your 1200? In my s10 200sx which is nearly identical in the rear as a 1200 i am using pro shocks in 2nd gen camaro length with “4/4” valving. The car is super planted in the rear.

    Cammed 210 head

    Even that nice long tube header i posted earlier i had to dent a tube slightly cause it was hitting the steering box. Worth it in my case? Yes. On another note that header is for a 510 and not a 200sx, but its close enough to work. Mild 620 with a 38/38, i think id rock a cast manifold. Back to the original poster, i think like the stage 2 isky cam the l-480 grind might get you what you want. Not aggressive enough to kill the bottom end either

    L18 bore 30 over

    Just get standard 280 flat tops and bore the extra .010. It takes like 10 minutes in a hone to knock that much extra material out. Or whatever flat top 280 pistons you can find. Bore the fuck out of it, make some powaa 😂
  10. ford 302's are really compact and make enough power to drift... might be a decent swap in a 210.

    Nasty ass lz23

    so the start of all this madness happened in the fall with this: someone got a little agressive with the timing.... 125hp shot of nitrous For fear that i really mashed it up, out it came. Along with the tranny. Unfortunatly i dont have pictures of the broken pieces but what happened is the brass pad came off the 1-2 shift fork and broke the tip of the fork off = shitty shifting. This was just a junkyard d21 trans to begin with so no suprise. here is the leftover guts from the trans rebuild. So what I ended up doing is buying an OK S13 tranny for the guts. I ended up using all the gears out of it and the shift forks. To make this work I had to completely dissassemble the cluster to remove the s13 tailshaft so i could use the D21 one. It was re-assembled with an ebay synchro and bearing kit and should be good to go. One gain this got me was double cone synchros, which the d21 trans did not have. I also have a better overdrive now, I believe it will be stronger as well as the teeth are much thicker than the D21 ones. Ta Da! back to the motor madness... it got a little toasty in the center, otherwise it doesnt look too bad other than the melted plugs.... no evidence of metal bouncing around. It was juuust starting to blow the head gasket in the center. if i hit this again with the 125 shot i think it would have been puking coolant. this thing ran fine and didnt have any signs of a blown head gasket. Pistons and cylinders look great! im very satisfied with this considering it ran 4 years with no air filters on it. After taking apart the head, i found that the exhaust guides were annhilated. Off to the machine shop for the head. I actually got them to knock the guides out and took it back so i could hog it out more, while parts arrived. In the previous incarnation I left a fair bit of meat in the exhaust port and ive learned quite a bit since doing this one 4 years ago. So this is what it looks like now. ive laid back the chamber a little bit more on the spark plug side to try and help flow, and around the outer edges of the valve even more. Ive certainly lost compression doing this but thats okay.. maybe i'll be able to get by on 94 on the street now. another thing that was attacked fiercely with the die grinder is the intake... stock cannon intakes are cast with wee runners in them, and have a machined bevel in the throats to match a 45mm carb. they are kinda horrendous if your trying to make good power. so..... this is a massive improvement and now has a proper taper from 45mm to the head ports (40mm??) I also had slugs welded on for the nitrous nozzles so theres more than a thread and a half holding them in now. they also sit alot higher in the port now, and may make the engine run a little better when not on the juice. More to come 🙂

    Nasty ass lz23

    Ah it is so fun reviving old threads. I never ended up dynoing this thing and this fall I took it apart as it was time to have a look. For an update the car has run down to an 8.2 on the 100 jets with shit track prep. Also the tranny started to have issues on the 1-2 shift. This 8.2 run had mashing gears on the 1-2 shift for about a second and was crunchy going 2-3. time to take that caitlyn jenner apart.. Below i will be posting "Nasty ass lz23 the refresh" whats new this year? stay tuned to find out. Im currently waiting on photobucket so i can post this bukkake of engine and transmission porn. were passing the sevens' this year and going for a high 6. gonna get kicked off the track for going too fast... thats the goal anyway..

    L20B rebuild

    you can jb weld the slots if you dont have a welder. the next piece of electronics i want to add is a cb performance black box, so i can build a 3d timing map to get best power at all rpms. couple this with a locked dizzy and migrate to crank trigger. cant get much better other than going to coil packs. overall you should be okay. just try to make sure theres no sharp edges in or around the chambers so you lessen your chances of preignition

    also if you bought the top end performance header, the ports in the flange are tiny and these will actually make less power than stock. theyre that bad. this was mine even after opening up the flange. the gasket is stock size. i gave this away after trying it due to dissapointment. i would only run this again if i couldnt find a manifold and if it was all i had. these ones are alot better, the flange actually matches the head. you might be able to find a NOS comp header which the one above is, or an ermish header or some other long tube thing. if you get a shorty, try and check out how the ports on the flange are. im not sure how other shorty ones compare, but the top end ones that the sell on ebay are poo.
