well after a hard season last year, desided im getting a cam, so i bought a zex 59500 cam... so i took the head off to take a peak at my cylinders after 400+ hp runs.. and here they are...


still looking great... nice cross hatch.. deck surface is great. no detonation marks on the piston tops what so ever..

also id like to add, those pistons sit hella low below the deck surface... you can def see that.. but thats just a plus, for a car thats not a street car.

vitara pistons correct?
you got it man, with standard rods.. scat h beams.. if you ask me, i like having a bit lower comp.. like around 7.5:1 provides a better cusion for error... lowered comp isnt that big of a deal anyways... the lower the comp, the more timing you can run before any detonation... which makes up for not having a higher comp.

Wish my block looks like yours, once I remove the head to put my 59500 on it.

Now, go for the 10´s Brother.

hell yeah man.. it shouldnt be a problem.. my tuner acually thinks i can lower my boost, and still hit 10's... he told me to be prepared, from going from a stock cam to the 500 series its going to drive like a totally different car... cant wait.

Dude, you need to double check your valve springs!!! One specifically jumps out at me screaming..."I'm up-side-down!" The more tightly packed coils end goes down, you can thank me later.

Wow!!! This gives me mass confidence about building a boosted motor. Those walls almost look pristine. Nice job. Not to sound dumb but does your ride see the streets regularly?
