  1. Any of the 3k to 5k upgrade springs fit all the k heads. What are the best? Consult the cam grinder who is doing the camshaft, they will know what pressure you'll need.
  2. If you are constantly running 98 premium you could easily get away with 11:1 and a bit static comp. You'll need upgrade valve springs for either. Twin 40's would be close to right. 38mm bike carbs work well with real similar combos.
  3. Nah I'll be putting the 18psi spring in the gate to start with, made 240rwkw at that with a slightly smaller turbo. That's more than enough for a sub 800kg car. Front suspension will get 6kg up from 4kg springs and some form of vented brake upgrade with a 4x114.3 conversion. Back will probably end up being shortened BW from a 31 skyline.
  4. Not sure, I asked him and he hadn't really noticed any increase. My tuner has it in his barra block and done drag challenge, it posed no heat issues for the week. Only time will tell.
  5. Engine grout is sort of like concrete, you fill the water jackets with, to stabilise the block. This one is only half filled to the bottom of the water pump.
  6. You're not wrong. Won't be grabbing it till mid March, but I'm 80% sure the deal is done so. IT'S A 4agte! Setup made 360rwkw last time it was dyno'd. Engine specs are: Semi-grout filled 7rib block. Mrp billet crank. Spool conrods. Sps 9.4:1 std bore custom pistons. Mrp 7/16 head studs. 312° Kent camshafts. Ported bigport head. Garrett gtx30. Microtech Ltx10(won't be staying long) Got some W5x bits for it already as I'm not getting a gearbox for it, but seriously considering a built Ford C series 3 speed. Probably won't have it in and running till late this year but really all I need fuel system, radiator and intecooler(the old ones which I'm getting are from a ke70) and a clutch and I'm golden.
  7. Well, the CA18/20 bottom end is sold. Was offered a seriously good deal on a sorted engine that I put together for a mate a while ago which will make chasing an 8 a lot easier. I will be putting the 5k back together as a 11:1 motor, re-registering the car then changing it over. All I'm going to say until I have done the deal is it's got two cams and a touch more capacity.
  8. Coming along nicely mate.
  9. Ok, once you've decided which path you want to take, I can point you in the right path to someone closer than Vic. I only have a spare set of 4k rockers, I thought I'd kept the new lifter and a12 pushrod combo but I must of gone with one of the 2 5k's I had sold a while ago. BUT FIRST, you'll need to make sure the 3k head is a "bigport" or not. Does it have a welsh plug in the back of the head or is it a 4 bolt plate? If it's a plate it really isn't worth your time messing with a cylinder head that really isn't any better than what you have.
  10. 3 and 4k rockers are adjustable, 5k aren't. Not sure if 3k and 4k are different, only ever had 3k's for the bigport heads(everything was scrapped). The ramp rate on a hydraulic cam is different to a solid cam, so unsure if you can change the rate. Probably best to start with a 4k cam. Where are you located I may be able to help with parts.
  11. Nope the head height is pretty different. It'll either need custom pushrods or a non hydraulic cam with solid small block chev lifters datsun A12 pushrods and 4k rockers.
  12. Send him a private message. It will send him an email, thats your best bet mate.
  13. Dude, the last post was over 12 years ago.
  14. Hey Darren, how are you mate? It's unfortunately slowly and i'm also considering a slightly different direction, well, maybe haha. Gotta have a plan B! Pretty sure it is a 12.99, well that's the quickest one I've seen, was/is a white ke30 pretty sure it's a Sydney car. But that was a long time ago though. Ultimately I'd like around an 8.90 out of my car that's obviously not with a "K", well I should fess up, about 4 months ago I bought a CA stroker short block stupid cheap full of spool gear, so that technically could be plan B but I've also been researching the Honda stuff too.
  15. I've seen the same symptoms in my ke11 and my father's old FJ20 swapped datsun 510. I had the "signal" wire for the regulator to the battery wire post on the alternator, it apparently loses the 12v signal and stops charging. May not be your issue, just thinking out loud.
