Cylinder Head 201 - Radius Cut Valve Job
This video covers the complete valve job process that your machinist might
perform. If the 100 series videos didn't help you identify and correct a
problem with your cylinder head, then this is the next step. This video is
brought to you with permission from my machinist in full 1080HD, and covers
cleaning up the head inside and out, preparation and setting up a radius
cutter, cutting all 16 valve seats, valve grinding, and spans 3.5 hours of
actual work in under 30 minutes. There's nothing like this anywhere else
THANK YOU BALLOS PRECISION MACHINE. Thank you for the professional
explanation and execution of a job excellently-done, and un-precedented
access to your facilities.
A valve job is done by re-grinding or replacing valves, and then having new
seats cut to match the faces of the valves you're using. There are several
different machines that might be utilized to achieve this result, but the
process is the same no matter how it's done. There are seat cutters that
utilize cutting stones. There are valve seat cutters with 3 separate
angles installed 120° out-of-phase, and there are single cutters with all
3 angles (radius cutter) that cut with one blade in one pass. The machine
demonstrated here is a Sunnen VGS-20 Radius Cutter. This machine (now out
of production) produces a gradual curved seat that's superior to the shape
of a traditional 3-angle seat. While a radius cutter does contain the 30,
45 and 60 degree angles, it does so without leaving any sharp edges between
My valve selection includes Supertech 1mm oversized nitride-coated
stainless steel undercut and back-cut intake valves, and 1mm oversized
Inconel back-cut Exhaust valves.
Inconel is a high-temperature alloy utilized in marine and forced-induction
performance engines that can handle more abuse than steel can without
melting. The other characteristics of the valves which are discussed
typically yield bigger gains in airflow than simply using a bigger hole and
a bigger valve.
Why I did this to a perfectly-good cylinder head:
I changed cams. Because the valves were previously recessed during another
valve job 9 years ago, my valve installed height was increased and this
raised the operating positions of my rocker arms. My new camshaft
selection dictates using the stock valve install height. The only
solutions to this valve install height problem are to either replace the
valve seats, or install oversized valves. I opted for the latter.
'97 RevSpeed DC2 & EK9 Time Attack
A rare RevSpeed video from '97 featuring the Spoon Sports DC2-R and K Shift
EK9 engaged time attack battle at the Tsukuba circuit. Mr.Spoon (Ichishima)
is driving the DC2R, though, doesn't seem to be one of his best races..
Skunk2 Intake Manifold Comparison: Ultra Series (Street) vs. Pro-Series
With the addition of the Ultra Series Street Intake Manifold to our product
line, we noticed large amounts of excitement about the product in addition
to a handful of questions from enthusiasts and builders. Many people had
one specific question in common, "does it make more power than the Skunk2
Pro-Series Intake Manifold?" Well, here's a quick comparison video showing
our results on a turbocharged Integra we
were allowed to rip on our Roto Test Dyno! You can be the judge.

Skunk2 Pro 3 cams idling
Here's how Skunk2 Pro 3+ cams is idling. The knocking sound is from the
ultra stiff valve springs. Rev cut now is 10,000prm and usable power is
available until 9,500rpm. WIth B18CR N3E gearbox, 100km/h is reached in
second gear @ 9,300rpm.

If you're a hot hatch-making legend like Honda, how do you work out the
reaction to your new car after years without a performance model?
Well, it's simple: you bring along your comeback kid, the new Honda Civic
Type R Concept, here to the wonderful Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium,
you invite along 200 die-hard Civic Type R owners from all across Europe,
you show them the car, and you ask: do you like it?
The new Honda Civic Type R turbo car's
2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC will develop
between 276 and 300bhp according to Honda, which is delivered to the front
wheels via a limited-slip differential and an old-school manual gearbox.
Honda promises this will be the fastest front-wheel drive road car on the
Nurburgring and look almost as tasty as this very menacing design study.
Watch the video to find out what the fans thought of the concept car , and
to hear out our drive in the incredible Honda Civic Type R Mugen.
If Honda can sprinkle just some of the fairy dust of that car, especially
when it's at about 9000rpm, on to the new turbo Civic Type R, and then if it delivers on
that Nurburgring promise of being the fastest FWD car ever to lap the
Nordschleife then surely that'll make it one of the best hot hatches on the
planet. We can't wait to find out.
