4v Head questions

Hi,

Can someone tell me the size of a stock 4v inlet and exhaust valve?

Also what cc is a 4v Closed chamber head?
How much cfm does a 4v inlet and exhaust port flow in stock trim?

Thanks Spazz

Usually, 4V CC heads came with 2.19" intake and 1.71" exhaust valves. There were some later model US-made 4V OC heads that had smaller valves, but this is probably not an issue for you.

The stock ports, with just a good valve job will flow enough for about 520-550 HP, but the camshaft requirements to get this much work done is rather wild. With a bit of head work, 600+ is not unreasonable. Above 600 and you're looking at high port plates and massive port work at least. It is a lot easier to simply purchase a good set of alloys.

They range from about 64cc to not much more than about 66cc, typically. Your mileage may vary... :D

Re: 4v Head questions

How about the runner volumes, lengths and minimum cross-sectional area?
