Blown head gaskets are rare, but they do happen and it’s almost never the fault of the gasket itself. The gasket is just the weakest link in the chain. Think of it like a fuse that blows first if there’s too much pressure. The problem is that the fuse doesn’t blow right away, first it starts to slowly give out and if you catch it early it’s not a big deal!
I've been into drag racing since I turned 16, and I've always found it interesting how FWD cars would lose so much ground off the line to RWD cars. I spend a good deal of my day around a dyno so obviously we talk about horsepower a lot. Ask anyone "what's your goal?" and you'll get a horsepower number of some sort, even if you were looking for something more broad like "I just want to run 9's" or "I just want something different." So everybody's got a horsepower goal and that seems pretty obvious. But have you ever noticed.. - Read More
Well...sometimes you gotta do whatcha gotta do I guess! but holy smokes... sometimes these nitrous installs are pretty sketchy! We have seen a few scary installs in our time, zip ties even, which brings a question to mind: If there was a Nitrous TB plate that you could run instead of these fogger nozzles wouldn't that be the better option? Let’s think about this... First of all, the concept of using a throttle body plate as a means to deliver nitrous oxide to the incoming air charge is not a new concept. There are already several manufacturers making throttle body.. - Read More
Imagine that you're at the track about to make a pass. You've just done your burnout and now you're staging. This is your time, all eyes are on you. This is your moment. Whether you have an 8-second car or an 11-second car, the track is clear and it's about to go down. Pre-stage bulbs trip first. Now you pull back on the handbrake to slow the roll. Then you release the clutch, just barely. You slowly creep forward. Staging bulbs light up and you go full throttle and put the car up on the 2-step or anti-lag. Flames are shooting out the.. - Read More
If all H&F series engines have the same deck height, what does that mean? That means that you can put F23 parts in an H22. Or H22 parts in an F23. Or H23 parts in an H22. Or F22 parts in an F23..... You get the idea. Why does this matter? Unlike B-series engines, which all have different deck heights and means they must use different length rods whether you're building a B16, B18a or B18c. In the H&F Series world, since the deck height is the same for all H&F series it means that you can swap rotating assemblies easily. Just.. - Read More
