What a head case !!

 Every one knows that oxygen is what gives you life, gives you power.......

The expression "walking on thin air" is only true to humans, our interaction with air give us the impression that it is almost non-existent, but only because we move so slow,  actually, some slower that others.

A fast moving object can find air a difficult substance to maneuver through,  what can give you speed and power can also chock you and slow you down...................breath baby, breath.

Most engines denied themselves the horsepower simply by the lack of air,  stock cylinder heads are usually suboptimal, sometimes due to design or manufacturing restrains.

I got three words for you:  Porting, porting, porting.
Improving the flow of air through the heads will bring any engine to its highest level of efficiency.  More air, more power;  After all, can you run a marathon with something stuffed up your nose ???

A stock factory turbo came at 265 hp, if we can modify the intake and exhaust ports  of the internal combustion and improve the quality and the quantity of the air flow.....
We can improve the wild ponies driving Big Red away...

and when the Boss flow bench those heads.....................................stay tuned.

  1. So philosophical. This approach is what relates to me the most about cars.
