Re: CHI heads re: Jon Kaase

Did you see the lates Muscle Mustangs Magazine???

It shows what they had to do to compete (not Kaase, Richard Holdner). Several hundred dyno pulls later, and they ended up using a manifold that cost 60hp at the top end so that they could acheive a higher average score, which is what the contest was all about. Its an interesting read.

Might have to have a sticky while @ the news agents. See if its in my local news agents if I get time. Although I should have. I'm on workcover at the moment as I hurt my back at work.

Re: CHI heads re: Jon Kaase

I noticed he said they had to do extra work to the heads. So anyone buying them in australia arent going to get the head he used. So they can be better. I wonder how much he charges for the extra work.

Re: CHI heads re: Jon Kaase

Probably reduced the chamber size and too off any sharp edges headwise. A relatively basic task. I laughed when he said "we were willing to suffer with all the other problems with a bad block just so he could use the heads".

Now we just need a decent block. A few companies are starting to take not of this are are tooling up to make a cleveland block

Re: CHI heads re: Jon Kaase

They made some mention of him creatively interpreting the rules by using a .300 thick head gasket. No, thats not a typo - .300 thou

Still waiting to see some figures attached to these mysterious claims of high HP using the AFD 4vs so far its all been talk and no proof and as you can tell by the video the CHI heads are getting praised by everyone who uses them and the figures so far speak for themselves.

Engine masters isnt about peak power, its about average power. As mentioned, the MMFF magazine sacrificed 50 peak HP in search of average power. You can easily add a fair few ponys on top of their competition results.
