Shooting for 200

Post by Mike Van Veghten » 25 Jun 2019, 14:37

Found some intake port things I think.

Shooting for over 200cfm at under .500" of valve lift, with similar increase at lower lifts also.
I know how to get to 197cfm/198cfm under .500" of lift, proven that a few times. My own heads and two customers heads now.
New configuration will be tested on a yearly certified, Superflow 600 bench.

Will be a little while, while I finish the reshaping.
Stay tuned.

Yes, Mike knows how and is still learning to make the Studebaker head flow better.

The next step is finding the ideal intake manifold to complement this 200 CFM head flow. I know from dyno testing using the OEM Stude iron intake will absolutely negate the potential of Mike's great porting work.

Testing the heads with intake installed is time-consuming, but it's imperative if we're going to actually make best use of 200 CFM heads.
