I thought all b230's got the big rods regardless of being NA or turbo after 89. I could be wrong.

PO seized the squirter motor and had a shop swap in an '87 block.

15g and an auto that's great numbers IMO for those mods. Well done.

Nice flat curve. That's pretty much what I want out of my motor. Maybe I'll get the 15g I have installed this year.

Wheel. No one will show off crank horsepower on a chassis dyno and keep their dignity

Yep. Then the block will explode and I will let it sit for years while I build another motor.

I don't think he does either, you could just take off that block off plate on the side of the block ad check, this car is pretty damn fun to drive I'll give it that!

Sam made 300 crank in the Deathwagon on the original motor back in the day, IIRC. I don't think I'd trust one past that kinda figure, mind...

cheers

Pre-ignition is what usually kills them. Consider the extra load over a clean ignition event. That does make the achievement on LH more impressive than correctly mapped aftermarket management, IMO.

If common cylinder pressure is around 75BAR, I wonder what pressure it is when the fuel 'splodes big time rather than burns?

Yep, the amount of pressure is far greater than the assembly would see under conditions productive to acceleration/

Why would anyone torque a bolt in place?


By torque, I am referring to its linear cousin, of course. If I could have this motor produce a peak 250 lbs-ft at 8000 RPM I would be a very amused camper with very safe 9mm rods.
