Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

My old Pontiac 400 taught me alot, I could get 22-24 mpg (4.5 litres = 1 gallon in Australia) in the 1977 Trans Am Bandit (genuine car not a faker). The basic spec of the car were 400 ci (6.6 L) engine, 4 speed Saginaw, GM 10 bolt diff with 3.08 ratio, 8" rims with 265/60-15 tyres. Cruising at 100-1...

There is a balancing act to it.. Flow through head matching duration and lift resultant compression, vacuum draw etc.. .. Have fun!

Coming form water/condensation in the tank?
There have been a few cases in Australia where the tanks haven't been cleaned out properly after being manufactured. I've never seen anything this bad but I'd suggest it is possible quality control forgot to check the tank before it was freighted.

Re: Site Upgrade

Yep but you are falling into the work vs not work trap and that is why I said that article confuses it. To make things even more confused, and the article doesn't touch on this either, most (if not all) large screens now enable "split view" where you can tell the screen how many individuals windows ...

Re: Site Upgrade

To me that article confuses work with general web surfing. When I work I often have 2 things open side by side (e.g. Firefox on the left and Office on the right) on the screen. Wide screens have, to me, a distinct advantage because I don't have to go and reopen hidden items just to continue working....

Re: Site Upgrade

I think you can set the forum's max width very wide, like 1800px orso, as it will scale down in width anyway to the user's screenwidth of the browser because the theme is responsive. Can't you use a % value? I was hoping the change in width from 1152 to 1280 would be more noticeable. I just changed...

Re: Site Upgrade

My screen rez on my desktop is 1920 x 1080 and this is the only forum I frequent that has so much unused space. I knew there was a setting somewhere just didn't know what one it was until BogBlockMopar pointed it out.

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

No problem burb I've not had much opportunity to read or take part properly because I've been away and also trying to find a place to live. I tend to try to get back to basics so that I am sure the person asking the question understands but more importantly, from my perspective, that others who come...

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

You make an interesting comment about Vizards choice of power against fuel mileage. In my experience any engine that is built based on well thought out requirements (i.e. realistic and suiting the purpose) is going to make max power for the purpose yet be as fuel efficient as it can be. Power is a b...

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

Not trying to lure you into anything. I know your not and that isn't what this is about. The point is working of basic info will give a basic answer but this is not a basic question. If it was burb could rebuild the 454 with truck engine specs and be happy. Burb is looking for something more and to...

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

As so happens last weekend I did some more reading about the 128-camtech. Had seen it mentioned before but never looked any deeper into it. Found the LSA of the cam I had selected for my 11:1cr 360ci build (CompCams XE256) seemed to be confirmed as fairly correct by the calculator. Here's the onlin...

Re: Site Upgrade

I mostly access this forum with a desktop computer and occasionally with my phone. On either of my devices, I have not noticed any display issues. What do you mean by "doesn't fill the screen properly"? On my laptop there is 1" either side that is wasted space. On my desktop it is about 4" either s...

Re: Site Upgrade

A wiki is a good idea. They function like a book because everything is bookmarked. The only problem with a wiki is they need to be planned well because adding things after they are initially setup can upset the "book style" and put things out of a logical order. A FAQ on the other hand can easily ha...
