Default New 16v sprockets from Yoshifab

I'm thrilled to have a nice new set of 16v gears with all the features I've been waiting for. Just received my order from Yoshifab. Very nice attention to detail. The stainless inset slot washers and bolts are a nice touch. Thank you Josh. Keep the great parts coming.

Nice. I like the vernier-style indications. Are that size hex key, in that application, suitable for careful people and hamfists alike? Love the stainless fasteners there versus the chrome-plated available elsewhere.

Those are nice. Well done Josh. I really like those slot washers, I wish the STS gears had that.

Does anybody use these to make power? Or just bling?
How about some dyno analysis?

Yes, that has been done here. Many years ago.

Hooray! I've been waiting for these! There's another legitimate use case for these, too: two 16v B230F builds and two extra sprockets required. I'll put these on the high power build and use the stock ones from that engine for the aux shaft on both.

I have one question, after being infuriated by a fidanza product: Are the fasteners metric? Please say yes. :-)

I remember someone adjusted a whiteblock to -2*,+2* for 4* separation on intake and exhaust, and picked up 40 ft-lbs of torque.
Who has done this with a current 16v?

They're sitting on my desk, and putting the fact that I like to call Josh my friend aside, these are a thing of beauty. Out of all the bits I got, these are by far the nicest most special items. Close second: Genuine Tial MVS and MVR wastegates. A couple of my very own pics of them, just to add to this thread a bit:









10/10, perfect fit, 100% high quality, great attention to detail, solid and attractive design. <3

I bought the beehive springs and am looking forward to using them. These sprockets are a wonderful product.

If anyone has a link to dyno plots, I'd be much obliged. Would love to play around with a set of these. The Yoshi stuff is quite nice. That the belt sits and fits right is a huge plus for the 16-Valve!... and it's true that the other gears on the market don't fit the belt.

Thanks!

-Ryan
