Thanks for digging that out. Do you know why they picked that particular exhaust lobe? I didn't see that one on their 904 lobe list.

I picked the lobes. They are both on the .904 lobe list

It would be interesting to see what effect removing the wall in the plenum on the air gap would do to your numbers and side to side air fuel...

I milled a cut out about 1/4" down for about 75% of the length of the wall in this intake

lots of info in this post.  Thanks for sharing!  I'm curious about why you chose a smaller than stock exhaust valve and how you got that to work.  Did you install seats?  My only experience with 1.6 valves was bad.  Three or 4 reseded to the point they beat up the seats and I had to go to a 1.76 valve when the heads were freshened up.  There were other issues on that engine and with that builder, so might not necessarily be the whole story.  But it would scare me to do it.

I use 1.6 valves in factory heads using 1.625 or smaller. The larger 1.68 valve heads I use 1.65 valves and do not have issues with them.

Are you re-cutting the valve seat angle as part of the process or still using factory 30 deg setup?

I re cut using 45* seats with all my iron heads. I also use 11/32 or 8mm stem valves in all my heads also.

Cool, that’s pretty much as expected.
