Seriously though, did understand what I posted above? You have to match it properly with cams. Both are what gives you power, not just one.
Take this for example, the ITR has .6 more than the GSR. It makes 25 horse more than the GSR. But its not just because it has more CR. It has different cams as well as other minor differences.
Think whole package here!
There is no way you can come close to doubling the size of a motor. You need to look this info up as its alreay available out there in the web. Sometimes you learn a lot from reading and researching yourself.
The only reason that i can see a headgasket causing a prob.(besides any of the other prob. that milling would create) would because it was cheap and did not seal well...rdline87ta94gsr said:You can always mill the head too... I've heard some thinner head gaskets can potentially just cause problems. By milling you would avoid this.
Definitely. When you're talking in thousandths of an inch, and few of them until you get piston/valve contact, you don't want to mess around. Not to mention that when milling the head, the surface has to be absolutely perfect, otherwise you'll run into the same problem as with a crappy head gasket (won't seal well).TodaTeg said:Now like white98ls said, milling throws timing off and is irreversible...now also with a thinner hea gasket and milling you can get piston to valve contact and that means you will have to buy a new motor... Plus milling is something that is so precise, there are very few people i would trust to take enough off and not too much off...
Yes, as I said before, it's a lot of labor to put in new pistons, and therefore a lot of money (unless you have the experience and tools to do it yourself).rdline87ta94gsr said:however, wouldn't milling the head (by someone you trust ) and then getting cam gears and readjusting the timing be a lot cheaper than getting new pistons and getting those installed? Yes, pistons would be awesome but that could be pretty expensive vs. milling right?
I've never really priced milling on a teg but I figure its gotta be cheaper....
