S52 swap, Dyno run & Tons of pictures

Realized I never showed more than a picture or two while I was doing this. So figured I'd post some up. I mated an S52 block to the ported and polished S50 head I had with a mild cam and three angle valve job; as well as some other various things. Hope you all enjoy the pictures.

This run was filmed right before taring car down. On shot S50 241 rwhp 227 torque. (90 compression in cylinder 6, 140 in 1-5)

Thank you man. It's running better than ever, feels like it has a lot more torque and I love how it sounds with headers now. Way more throaty, and just explodes when I get on it.

That's sick, video requested. You have to be running a little rich though. I don't think my car does that.

No meets planned quite yet. We usually just get about 20 guys/gals and hang out at someone's house. Grill out, go take some pics, just chill and talk cars

What headers are those? They look nice...

Also why are your S50 numbers sorta kinda low? Wasn't your S50 fully (or sorta) built?

Other than that, looks delicious bro...

Thank you, and it was mildly built. But look at the compression numbers I posted next to the dyno numbers. Engine was toasted. I didn't rebuild it because I was bored. I was blowing smoke.

Haha, How's your car going man?

Oh headers are Racelands. Never answered that. They were the biggest PIA ever to make work, but absolutely love how they sound.
