Default 530 head extreme makeover

I m workin in a new head for my ford Sierra. Actually my engine is delivering 310hp to the rear wheels on 15 psi and 372 hp on 22 psi pump fuel + water.

This is my new head trying to get to 400hp on fuel pump.






Hope you like.

if you can keep it together, that will definitely up the flow!

Holy hell. I dig it. If it works out I'd be interested in having one myself.

I m thinking in two ways todo it. As i didnt hit water i just have to solve how to avoid oil leaks into intake.

I could use alloy and weld it or stainless and some kind of gasket maker and then fill the old intake duct with some kind of epoxi or similar.

On the other side of the tube i will get a flange cutted and i will weld it to the tube to keep everything together.

Sorry if i made a mistake trying to explain this but englishis not may first language.

I m from argentina and we speak spanish.

Very good work. Just a tip, you should say pump fuel, not fuel pump, when talking about how much power you're trying to make

This is how my head flows right now on 25". You have add around 5% to compare 28". What im trying to do whit this mod is improve the flow on high lifts from 8 mm to 13 mm, where the narrow channel and bad short side radius creates a lot of turbulence. I ll post the result as soon as the valve seats gets done and the head is measured
