I'm rarely excited about NA redblocks but that is beyond sexy.

Looking forward to seeing this one run!

I bolted the header for the first time in a long time. I installed the SS coolant pipe that we are offering for sale very soon. I'll be making a brass hex adapter for oil pressure sensor. I like to offer a couple for sale to people if they would like one. Material should be here soon.

You guys gonna be doing a production run of those headers? That alone might inspire more NA builds. ��

Well itís a pretty unit. And since STS has one in hand.... sounds like that header design could rise from the ashes and be in the market again!

an NA header like that was never "in production." They had that built as a one off IIRC.

Ok, and no reason it couldnít go into production. Quiet different the Swede headers.

It may have been mentioned, how do you plan to mount the engine? Stock mounts or will this be vertically mounted? Interested in clearance with the brake booster and master cylinder. Also, expose that header as much as you can!

It's going to be mounted stock the air filter will clear the booster

Curious to hear what you think of it after some driving. Still on the fence about going 8v or 16v in the 142 depending on if I can eek 160hp out of an 8v (NA) with a good cam and some homebrew head work along with bumping the compression.

Does it run yet?! Does the cam have the stock base circle or do you need to run lash caps?

Whp or crank? Whp will take a bit more fancy work and $$, but 160hp at the crank and 135-140whp isnít too hard.

33mm base circle I think stock is 36mm? The cam is the largest I could run without shim under buckets.

I ran into too many projects so it's still on the stand

If it’s a 33mm base circle, wouldn’t that require shims under the buckets to get the right clearance? Or can you just barely get the right clearance with normal shims or did you have the valves sunken to make the difference?

I believe you can use lash caps in coordination with the original buckets to get everything to play nice. I think.

Or use longer valves. Or have the machine shop sink the valves into the head to make up for it (not the best).
