Lovely stuff!

Is it 'sonic testing' to check how far you can bore?

Hi Owen
More pics off the bottom end, its all together now,  looking  good , i removed all the old paint off the sump and parts that were painted blue and removed the paint from all the bolts to get a better finish , next will be setting up the head with the new springs and cam ,

And yes sonic testing is to see if its safe to bore , as this block was 89.5 it was realy close to getting a new block , but after sonic testing it was found to be a very thick casting

Should sound real good now! Pete those mesh filters shouldn't take much to pull off, I've only put three little dabs of silicon to hold them on.  ;)

Owen , you are going to love this Engine, when you get it up and running it will be time to do a drive day, or at least meet up some where! Melbourne boys and Ballarat boys and Warrigal  boys and the other Boys.

You were running the sock filters, Owen. What made you switch? Peter told me once the mesh filterss are restrictive. Did I misunderstand you Peter?

Those injectors are 283cc 14mm!

Hay Roberto,

There's quite a few styles of the mesh type, I thought some were good and some were bad. These are EFI hardware one if I'm not mistaken. Steve Newing tested them on a V8, he says they offer no restriction at all and flow the same as an open stack. It's no PMC Lseries so results may vary.

Any filter will have pressure drop across it and that means a flow restriction doesn't it?
