HERE

All is well, until you get to the last two lines of desciption;

"The Vehicle head has been skimmed by 4 inches which has incresed
pullling power of this vehicle by 40 extra BHP which means the vehicle
BHP is at 155 BHP will take out a GT turbo or a or a diesel turbo."

I wonder if a, anyone will fall for it, and b, what would acually happen if you took over 10cms off the head?

4" my ass. 4mm maybe. His pistons barely have 4" of longitudinal
movement. And with increasing the compression ratio that much means
running it on high octane fuel forever or at least rearding the timing
so it will not blow itself apart.

What a joke.

it might be me just being a "women" but how the hell does he recon that he has added 40 more ponies to it?????? by doing what? skimming the head?? i thought you done that if your head gasket had gone and done some damage or something [:^)]

Skimming the head ups the compression ratio so you get more bang for
your buck as it were. The fuel/air mix is compressed more so the bang
has more energy but it means you run a greater risk of the fuel
detonating before the spark plug ignites it - pre ignition. This means
the piston will be stopped in its track on the way up and normally
burns valves, holes pistons and destroys bearings.

The only way round it is running high octane fuel which performs better at high compression ratios.

So instead of sending 'friendly' questions like you lot, I did an actual genuine friendly one asking if it had been dyno'd;

"Yes it had a diagnostic test before i made
replacement to engine components but i have not yet checked at machine what the
BHP is but i could tell you we also have a V% 4 motion and it keeps up with it
all way. The head got skimmed by 4 inches which is allowing extra 40% air intake
which should mean its about extra 40-45 bhp. You neeed to drive this machine to
undertstand what i mean. There is not a better one then mine by looks and
condition of vehicle."

So basically, he got V6, 4 inches, 40%, intake and 40bhp, and then put random words in between!

I think 4 mil is still a huge amount for a skim! 40 thou maybe at a push!

Someone local should go and see it for a laugh!

He says it will take out a GT Turbo/Diesel I assume he is refering to its NCAP rating? He would know its capability being CAT C don't argue with the man!
