Jamie were you guys able to support the 5HP per cylinder gain on a dyno? 6x5=30HP

If that's the case I think there would be a lot of interest. (if the price isn't way up there)

I have read a lot of posts from Dave at Watherthunder and he always states there is a lot more horsepower to be gained with our old antiquated Lycoming engines over the stock setups. :thumbleft:
Keep us updated!! :salute:

I would guess maybe a 20-25hp gain overall if the person who does the work knows what they are doing otherwise I have seen more people who do not know what they are doing actually make their engine worse..

We used a flow bench to get best results on a mock cylinder, then matched all the rest to it, sad as hell with all of that plus many other mods, the engine was never truly wrung up, I even doubt the rings got broke in.

300$ each head/jugg.
We need both head and jug attached together to do the porting work.

If you can, get a spot face to square up the port end of the guide, it would be beneficial to the next machinist to do the seat grinding, especially if he is a cheap hack like me using antique black and decker stems and stone holders 8)
