The "Head job" looks great! Why go to narrower valve stems? Any dyno numbers?

We want a podium finish this year.

Good Luck,

This cylinder head is made by Lindsey Racing. Lindsey decreases the diameter of the exhaust valve ( 40=>38 mm) to speed up of the speed of the turbo. This make it easier to turn the turbo. 2018 has already been a podium for my 968.

Thanks for the update! Great to see all those Porsches from the 90's racing again! Such a shame Spa-Francorchamps isn't on the calendar.

[color=left=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]We will change the position of the coils because they were above the engine and tend to heat[/color]

[color=left=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]We will position them on the back of the engine compartment[/color]


The access to the spark plugs and injectors will be easier


[color=left=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]The fan used for demisting will be positioned just above the oil tank[/color]

[color=left=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]I take advantage of this winter break to have the fire extinguisher checked. Two years old[/color]
