We added a Sunnen cv-616 auto cylinder hone and a Mitutoyo SJ-210 Profilometer. We will be using diamond abrasives now and the Profilometer lets us measure the surface of the cylinders to get the finish optimized for whatever piston ring setup being used. #precision #optimization #invest

Got to spend the day with a good friend of ours. Dropped a set of heads off there to be digitized and CNC ported for us to our specs. Couldn’t take many pics because there is some serious trick stuff like 3.0hp per cubic inch naturally aspirated stuff. 1 of 3 cnc mills and some billets for custom intake runners.

Any thread repair we have we use TimeSerts. It’s a solid piece of metal vs heli-coil’s which most people know of and are more commonly used. These LS head will have 8 installed in the valve cover bolt holes. Much better for such a small 6mm bolt to grab. heli-coil(left) vs timesert(right)

NHRA class racing engine in for updates. Lift rule for this particular engine is under .400” gross valve lift but unlimited duration also has to be flat tappet cam. Duration is huge can’t say how much but by the almost square lobes you can tell.The power they make is tough to believe given the cubic inch. Side by side of a normal performance grind flat tappet cam.

6.6L Duramax crank needed some Mallory metal put in. Thing has a 3517g bob weight!! We put them in with .002 press fit and put a heavy, wide bead of stainless across main journal side and polish it almost flat but not quite to leave extra material. Turner Technologies balancer works wonders. Initial imbalance was 125g out in front and 190g out in rear. Finished at .65g front .68g rear.
