Slippery, what kind of thermal coatings do you use on valves? I emailed 3 shops in the phx area for quotes, and got no replies. I don't beg anyone to take my money. So I got my old buffer out and went to work. I figure a good polish will reflect heat and reduce carbon buildup. It's probably not worth the effort, but of course, I'm going to do it anyway..

What became of those V4 Scats? A friend once suggested dropping one into a Porsche 914 for a track car. Would sure sound good.

The Titanium valves are coated by Calico coatings, it helps the titanium live being these engines ingest dirt their entire life. Helps with heat, makes them slippery. We designed the TT engines to go 2000 miles before refresh, they have been pushed hard to 2500.

We are finally getting around to using this badass RCD engineering SBC timing chain cover. We run their gear drives on all of our Big Block TT engines and had the opportunity to work with them on the development of this beautiful piece.

1. Wow! 2. 4.250 stroke? Is it a tall deck block? 3. A billet oil pan? 4. Gear drive cam? I thought timing belts were best for racing.

2-yes & yes, spread bore
3-yes billet Dailey dry sump
4-No gear drive on the SBCs and belts don’t last in Offroad.
This engine is running a 13* head and will be getting twin hair dryers on it going in a Racer engineering TT.

Still can't figure out why Race car builders don't build rough pitted surfaces into their bodies if air flows better over rough ones...or do they?
