Are you able to elaborate on these " tricks " for the Impco 425.
Who is your contact in Melbourne that knows how to tickle them.
Ok i have to call :bs: on the Motorcraft filter bit :s6: . If anything a filter like Motorcraft & Ryco would have better flow on start up & be less likely to bypass the filter, why...? Because their filter media is less restrictive(less filtering = more flow), than say the K&N or Mobile1, which use more restrictive synthetic fibre(better filtering = less flow) filter media.ESP said:I have also found that a really good Oil Filter is just as important. Steer clear of the El Cheapo RYCO's and Motorcraft Junk. They bypass the filter at High revs and do not flow well on start up. Try K & N or HARD DRIVER.
Gas reasearch gear is expensive. "borderline 10.5:1" with an F260? The more overlap the better it will cope with a high static compression ratio so i'm not sure where the problem there is...Fat F100 said:You have done well Chris.
I have just priced a Gas Research conversion for my F truck at $3700.00.
This includes a 240 litre (238 usable) tank, cast twin carb adaptor, 2 gold series carbs (S480 + S510), draglink, 2 B2 convertors, installation, tuning & dyno time.
I would also need to send my ignition back to IC&E to be regraphed while they were doing the conversion.
I will not be going ahead with this though, as my cam has too much valve overlap (Crane F260), & my compression is what they called "borderline at 10.5:1". I spoke to another guy locally about it & he came straight out & said "Maaaate! I don't want to touch it."
So it's back to $1.05 optimax again.
