"great power gains with a grin from ear to ear:biggrin:"
hopefully that will be me :biggrin:
Just adjusted my valve timing/clearance and put on a thermo fan on (replaced my clutch fan) using a "Davis Craig" adjustable thermo switch, and I've noticed a considerable power gain, maybe it was the valves maybe the fan, but I like it heaps more now.

But still bring on the TURBO :dbanana:

I'm pretty confident that you would of gained no 'butt in the seat dyno' power from the valves bro.. I've never noticed power gain in my EA81 form doing that. Although if the valves were always slightly open then it may make a difference, but none of your tickers were set that bad.

yeah they just were not opening as far as they could, most of them the gap was too large also leaving the valve closed for too long.

I'll be interested to see how the gb holds up to the turbo phiz. I got lucky and the mechanic I've been going to for years did his apprenticeship at a subaru shop when the L-series was still in production. He said the gbs are tough as nails but don't turbo the ej22 (when I get the bloody thing in) cos that'l be pushing too far.:rolleyes: I didn't ask what he thought about turboing the ea81-82 but if it can stand up to a supercharger I don't see why not. You have a funny sort of hybrid gb anyway though right?

Yeah, it's AWD so a little better with the extra power on road.. I never plan on using boost with the centre diff locked though.. So that should help it out a little
