Hey Anders, Hope all's well across the pond.  Still have your rear trim. When are you coming over to the colonies?    DQ

wow... NICE

 

Love that Heidegger valve cover.  Very sexy.  And the linkage looks to be a well-built piece of kit, too.  Which Webers are those?

...love that box-flared car dq

Hey Danny,

 

Good to hear - I've got your embossed nose trim securely stored too...

I'll actually be in Orlando on the 24th & 25th of August, but not sure when they'll send me further west?

 

Hi Ed,

 

The Webers are 45mm DCOE's, so plenty of burbling induction roar!  :P  Works well with the 300 degree BMW Motorsport cam.
The linkage is bought from Merlin Motorsport.  Not cheap, but beautifully engineered.
We also upgraded to a pointless Luminition ignition system.
The Heidegger valve cover is of course pure BLING with no added function what so ever, but looks soooo freakin' awesome, I just couldn't resist temptation...

Some will say a properly tuned 38/38 will make just as much power as sidedrafts...

 

 

I humbly have to disagree with such a statement.
There's just no way you will ever achieve the same amount of power with a 38/38 downdraught, as you can with two double 45 sidedraughts.  Of course everything else has to be set up correct to work with those massive 45's.  But a highly doubt you will ever see more than around 135 - 140 hp with a 38/38, where as twin 45's will let you sniff at 200 hp if you are prepared to spend big money on other components.  Not that my engine is anywhere near that figure, but i reckon I have a very real 150 hp on the current set-up.  I rolling road session in the near future will hopefully prove me right...   ;)

Beautiful linkage design. 

 

Twin 45's I'm sure can produce more than a 38/38 but were they hard to set up correctly?

great job!

okok, now things are getting a bit convoluted.

 

  A well prepped 38/38 can be comparable to dual 40's (45's were not part of that quote, so not sure why this was brought up here).  Said 38/38 race engines have proven to be around 165 flywheel hp (go talk to VARA racers), this means race gas, cam, compression, etc.  I can only assume you were meaning flywheel horsepower on a 200hp m10 running 45's.

 

  Engine looks fantastic.  Is that the replica valve cover I saw machined on facebook?  Looks beautiful.

I had a feeling the conversation might head off into this  38/38 v Sidedraft comparison...

 

I like my side drafts.

 

Ed

 

 

I like both, but I'm not going to fight myself over it.

 

 

Get it? Fight myself?

 

 

 

 

 

I'll see myself out.

I think that is a pretty astute assumption if you brought it up in the first place!  I don't think it would have come up at all if you didn't say anything.
