I recieved these exhaust valves today for my 1.2L, EF-12e heads.

http://www.ultimates...&pictureid=1940

But I was wondering...The Just only has three exhaust valves. Guy sold these to me listed as set of 4. I thought it was a typo. I have 4 and they're not Genuine Subaru/Felpro. Made in Japan. I need another set of 3.

What car do these valves go to? They are correct for the Justy but...I haven't verified whether or not the groove is what the Justy has.

I'm easily amused.

I know my subie likes the higher octanes too it is not a turbo but it gets about 2-5 more MPG with Premium gas versus regular most of the time that pays for the higher octane gas for my rig.

What I did with my soobie. I stripped it this far. EF-12e, to me. Shaft mounted rockers very much like the EJ in that picture. Multi valve.

And I was thinking. That land speed record Justy. 1.2L block and head. 1.0L crank. So that means they would have pulled that top hat off, stuck a carb on each of those intake runners with a simple adaptor.

They ran within the 1L class rules slipping in the 1.2L head. I don't even know if that's true:) But...If the rulebook doesn't say it's illeagle, well.

No. That hasn't crossed my mind lately. It would probably cost me $30,000.00 to do that. Last time I looked.

Sincerely,

Doug

But, If I were to stick a carb on each runner and use the injecter bosses for Nitrous, I think that would work. But I don't have any plans to do it.

Edit: If I've got it straight, they turned that 1L Justy 9 to 12000 rpm, with custom pistons and stock rods.

And don't get me wrong. I don't assume that record can be taken down with that money. Those guys knew what they were doing, I believe. You'd have to find holes, improvements. You'd have to take what they did, to another level.

Because, in order to beat the best, you have to be the best.

See thats the thing, back in '88 when they did that, they pushed the limit with what you can do to that engine while staying within the class ragulations. I dunno if you could even do anything more to the 1.0 now days, sure you can bore it out, but to much and its a diffrent class.

It would be interesting to see if/what they could do to that 1.0 with todays technology.

I don't know what happened, but this is not a good photograph.

I took my Soobie intake valves out of the chem dip. They look great, fat margins, a little recession.

My first choice is new ones, but I don't have any for a reasonable price.

This head may see turbo, nitrous, 10 to 1 forged flatops.

I'm almost positive the valve guides are done. The exhaust are always the worst. The take a beating.

These are 7mm stem. Those Nascar guys run a 7mm, with bronze guides with internal o-ring for the seal.

Edit:Priced a full dyno session with a motor on the stand. $500.00 local. I don't think I'll need it and it costs a lot. I'd have to have a reason. Guy buys a new Hemi block, stroker crank, 472 ci to fit the class. Indy cylinder heads and such. He blows two headgaskets befor putting it rebuilt on the dyno. They have it at 7000 rpm and it's putting out 650 hp when it blows another gasket. They tear it down and check the deck height, it's out .003. twisted. It's lived a long and fruitfull life since then.

Changed plugs, wires, oil and filter on my '80 brat now all I need to do is pay the five years back registration and put the brakes in, and she'll be back on the road.

I needed to make a correction. I've never seen the intake manifold on the land speed justy, so I'm not sure what it had on it. I've never been able to find out. The runners are 36mm, exhaust ports about one and a quarter inch. Normally asperated i'd consider a 1 3/8" primary.

Changed oil and gave her a dose of MMO, checked a filled all fluids as necesary.

new exhaust (I kind of wrecked my old one on some high ground. backed up into a clump of dirt and it made the tail pipe fall off and the muffler got messed up so it was not letting out exhaust . They fixed the muffler back now I just need to fix the exhaust manifold gaskets again as when it was not letting the exhaust out it blew out the gaskets. ) Today Hopefully get a new water pump (pumps leaking) new radiater hoses and exhaust manifold gaskets on .....

Hey,

You said: "all you need is big power and golf ball dimples to reduce drag"

:) If the rule book doesn't say one way or the other, then dimples are leagal.

I believe big power would be what it takes, at the end of the day.

They have dimpled sheets that you can cut to size and glue down to your
car.
I'm not sure what the website is, but I saw the results on a scion xb and they
looked pretty good.
They're basically just sheets of plastic that are dimpled like a golf ball.
I'm pretty sure you can order different colors and the like.

I would search "dimpled car" or something like that (I would search it right
now but my phone can't handle multiple windows)
But it is a real product and has shown an increase in fuel economy (but no
top speed numbers :confused: )

Relying on the wealth of information provided in this board, as well as the sources referred to in this board, I picked up a wrench for the first time in about 25 years, pulled the engine out of my daughters 97 OBW, pulled the heads, changed the gasket, had the valves done, replaced the water pump, and put it all back together again. To my utter surprise, it fired right up and ran. After dealing with a small issue with a mis-threaded EGR pipe fitting (had to pull the intake manifold back off and re-tap the threads) it even ran well.
Also, on advice from this forum, and willing to try anything before dropping the tailshaft from the AT, I began the process of flushing the tranny in order to deal with car's torque bind. One thing I didn't read here is how incredibly messy the job of dropping the pan and changing the AT filter is - all I can say is . . . damn. But, I was amazed at what a huge difference even one tranny fluid change made - the TB is almost completely gone. I will continue the three drain-and-fill process concluding with Mobile 1 synthetic and Trans-ex but I am relieved to not have to dig into the tranny.
Life has been good, until the "check engine" light came on tonight. It appears I have another adventure before me.:rolleyes:

How bout I just find a Justy that's got hail damage on every body panel from a hailstorm, in Colorado. ;) It would be stock.

I was in a metal building at Fort Carson during one, and it was Loud.
