Get a measureing kit from summit or jeds and measure the combustion chambers and ports. You can get quite a bit of info about it that way.

i hate bill gude. i think thats his name. he was so not helpful with me too. i had the same problem. he was very vague with what was done to the head. but, from what i gathered, the head was milled. .030". compression should be around 11:1 according to him. but dont etch that in stone. he wouldnt give me compression ratios for specific motors. he just said 11:1 for all of them. he had poor people skills. hope this helps.

I'm not a Gude fan myself, but in their defense, they can't just go and give the specs and such for what they did to your head and all. That would def be a bad business move if it got out ;)

i mean come on all i want is the amount he milled off for the sake of seeing if the valves will hit with the new cam or what

measure a stock head, then measure yours. You've got to look at where they're coming from on this. That's how they make their living, If you had something that made you famous and paid your bills, would you tell any body that asked how you did it or what you did?

that is what i wanted to know too. it took me awhile to get it out of him, but he finally told me .030". i wasnt wanting his porting secrets, just what was done to increase compression.

030?? is that it? cause that is all i need to know cause bisi cannot tell me what cam to get if he does not know so i hope that is right

so here is the new plan i am building a new engine same as the one i have but all bisimoto and i am going to dyno both of them with the same tunining ecu

and i'm posting all the results but man what a dick

i just got off the phone with roy gudes daughter.. he said he cant give the specs out because this guy isnt the origional purchaser and he doesnt know what head it was for since everyone has them setup different...

but he also said that he usually mills the head 80 thou most of the time.. no more then that.. i hope that helps.... 80 thou off an a6 head on a a6 block is about 11:1.... 10.93:1 to be exact

that is how i felt too. i just dont even bother with his products anymore. skunk2 and edelbrock were both way more helpful.
