Re: Curious about the engine, :question:
Definitely not gonna ping with 3 gaskets up top... I guess they were going for a 4:1 compression ratio or something... but hey, at least ya got a few spares now...
On the intake manifold, yeah, I got a jug & piston combo from boygeasfast on ebay and that welded intake was just plain horrid to say the least, and not even enough metal there to do a match port. I think I ended up cutting that one up to use for something else, but I kept the flange to use as a template in case I ever decide to make my own, but so far I hadn't had the need to.
