I like the sound of that bitchen cam very much, thanks for info George.
I’ll build with 91octane/95ron in mind as you suggest, last thing I want is blow holes in the cylinders.
And from there probably land somewhere in the 10.5 range static compression wise.
I’m thinking hydraulic roller at your suggestion there and I’ll take a look at my options with that in mind.
I did have a good look around the web for a rev kit, however despite many hints and allegations on various old forums I couldn’t find one, looks like the occasional old one ends up on ebay but nothing to rely on.
Now, that being said I think I’d love to hear how you would use the solid roller setup if only for educational purposes, as one of the very best things about your posting is the detailed reasoning behind the decisions you’d make. It really helps to illuminate so many of the pitfalls around how these old hunks of iron make real power without falling apart dramatically when doing so, and what compromises might be necessary to get there.
