I was asked not to discuss numbers but IME most heads peter out around .7-.800" lift. This things flows BIG numbers w/no turbulence up to 1 inch of lift. The tool won't give any more so we cannot tell if it stops there with a valve in the hole. $20K each for a bare head!!! You oughta see the intake manifold. And the rocker arm ratios are nuts. I'm not a NASCAR fan but I am a gearhead and this engine is unreal.

How about something a little different?

This is a beach in Kauai that for years was used as a dumping ground for old vehicles. The beach is littered with decades worth of old crankshafts, engine blocks, intake manifolds, axles/diffs, etc etc that the salt water have taken their toll on.

Never thought I'd spend hours taking pictures at a dump

I've got lots more pictures (I can post later if anyone is interested) but this was one of my favorites, so I did a quick once-over

Ya that's very cool nature had reclaimed her. Look at the colors meshing into and with the surrounding environment. Beautiful in odd way.

I'm still in Kauai, and working on a netbook (exhausted from a hike yesterday, and avoiding raindrops) so excuse the I'm-too-lazy-to-go-over-each-photo batch processing. I've also had a few beers

These aren't quite as exciting as the first image, but I think they're neat nonetheless. After all, where else you gonna find this stuff?

Great pics! Makes you realize the earth will, over time, reclaim what it has given.

Thanks for sharing
