8.7:1 is still good compression.

still waiting on the head flange to come in so i cant start on the mani but i did get the car stripped of its unnecessary parts today and did a little more stainless practice





ordered me some #8 cups last night for the welder instead of the 7 that i used on this. should get some more gas coverage with them for more color

#8 cup alone wont get you the color, Your weld is too hot/moving to slow. try less amps and working faster. too much heat will ruin the strength of the weld.

yep, ive been pouring over data on the different turbos for the last hour solid, looking at dyno graphs, comparing spool time, peak boost, price, etc, etc and i think im going to run the borg warner/bullseye s256 SS .55ar. very good price, spools like a BB turbo, and it will get my 450whp goal without breaking a sweat and is probably capable of more. what's your take on that turbo jim? would you run it?
