Sorry for all the questions, did you get a chance to fit and test the head? never got round to dyno testing my head to see where the most gains (and or losses!) were. I could only judge by feel and increased top end performance. Id guess you would see quite healthy increases if the oem head is quite restrictive and boost picking up quicker.

Sorry i did look what it did before, Someone gave me flow figures of a well know cylinder head man

I did my work on the head and strapped it to the flowbench and beat his figures

s3gazz you may need a tweak of the map.

Cant believe i haven't seen this thread before, looks like top quality work and as much as i'm pretty sure i could do mine (no where near as good as this) i think its something i'll leave to people that really know what they're doing ;)

Just redone my own head due to unfortunate cam breakage

I would love to do something like this one day... Not necessarily to the S3... This sort of thing fascinates me haha

Is that from the perspective of doing it on a 2WD car to see the driveability improvements as opposed to on a 4WD or purely on a small port head?

why use photobucket ????????
all pic lost
full topic usless
Quite possibly because when the original post was made the photobucket issue wasn't an issue...

There will be a lot of this on almost any forum that supports this type of image posting sadly and will be a fair few threads heading this way as photobucket accounts approach renewal (mine included)

There is no need to get quite so upset about it though :)

I hope there is a cost effective way to resolve the image issue, as this was a fantastic guide for porting. Has given me plenty of confidence in taking on my own head work. =]
