    This fix was originally published in Joe Goffin's Aluminator Gibtec Build Thread

    OK guys here they are and some pics of how they were made, some additional photos similar to Joe's about how the disassembled tensioners look and where they go as you reassemble.

    I started with a 1 ft length of 3/4" 095 wall, seamless 4130 tubing because that was the closest that McMaster had to the size i needed. This is the tubing from McMaster.

    The subject of fasteners comes up frequently enough that I should have organized this shopping list some time ago. Oh well, woulda, shoulda, coulda ... Here it is now. It covers every ARP fastener that is commonly used on our engines, how many you need and the torque or, in the case of the connecting rod bolts, the stretch required for proper installation;

    Here are a few hopefully provocative thoughts on the how's and why's of cam selection and phasing.

    Blower motors produce much higher cylinder pressures than their n/a cousins which is part and parcel to how they generate more torque and therefore horsepower. These higher cylinder pressures provide both benefits and challenges we do not have in n/a engine design equivalents. Those distinctions can be used to advantage as we approach cam phasing decisions for our engines. What I am going to share may seem at first, counter intuitive but it is as real as the supercharger on top of your engine.

    Lets use Comp 106450 cams and phase them to the crank like this;

    This is a fairly typical ...

    It has been a year or two since this was last a topic of discussion. At the time I did not have chain samples in my possession for two of the three most interesting chains, the Cloyes "Z" chain, and the Morse Japan HD chain. Since then I have managed to get production versions of all three chain sets. I have photographed all three side by side for visual comparison and also personally miked each ...

    Many innovative products come directly from via an enthusiast fulfilling a need for their personal car. Back in 2003 ModularFord's user CobraBob was disappointed with the vibrations transmitted from his transmission to his Cobra's shifter. His solution was a silicon rubber ...
