I really like the port split aspect of the intake - should minimize cylinder robbing, provided you're still getting enough overall flow - although 48 CI shouldn't require much.

What CR are you at with this piston/head combination?

Does it still run the 2 bearing crank?

Well, I can't speak to the coating method - I sent my pistons out for a service to do it, and I hope what you've got works - but a 48" Austin 4 popper with a pair of HS 2s is right in my wheelhouse.

How are you gearing it, and what are you using for a transmission?

Will you be able to make Speedweek with it this year?

Good luck on this build!  :cheers:
