Cool thanks
Glad to hear such success with the high comp turbos.

Ive been throwing ideas around on how to make an old automotive head flow better. With no way of knowing what flows better, I decided to build a janky backyard flowbench.
I got as far as the manometer.

And the spark plug fitting

Which is really a hollowed out spark plug jbwelded to some fittings I had laying around.

I screwed up and bought the wrong fittings to connect to the house shop vac to the head, so I'll fix that the next day of the one after.
I also made a device to depress the valves, with the help of a dial indicator, will do so somewhat precisely.
If anyone has done this, what do you feel is the easiest way to connect the vac to the cyl head? I got a sheet of lexan that I can cut a shop vac hose sized hole in and seal to the head. Air tight of course.
I am not too concerned about getting volumetric flow rates now, just percent change. Plus any attempts at quantifying cfm seems somewhat suspect. Again do chime in.

Thanks

Ryan

There's a thread somewhere with flow rates of various mods/porting on a 530 head floating around here somewhere.

I think that has been removed. I found flow figs for ultra performance stuff, Erland Cox head and such. Nothing stockish, havent checked thoroughly tho.
