I simply used the standard 60 series rubber mount and then cut a sort of u shaped plate out of 8mm flat steel plate. It's ugly as all get out but it's under the car so I don't care.

Last I checked my local machine shop wanted something like $20 to machine a piston. I've no idea what it costs to have a custom head gasket made.

So while going though some more catalogs I noticed that Honda D17 pistons from a 2003 Civic have a pin height of 27mm and a bore size of 75mm. The skirts are also very short and look like they might clear the crank throws. I may order one and test fit it in my A12A block has this set up wouldn't require any machining.

For race classes where one has to use an A12 block this could be an advantage. This would make it possible to get between 1450cc & 1488cc using oversize D17 pistons.

Additionally the dish is such that the static compression would be 10-1

There is one down side, at 27mm the pistons would be .4mm proud of the block. The choice would be use a 1mm thick head gasket which would leave .6mm clearance Nissan Comp gasket is .6mm so that clearance should be fine or mill .4mm of the pistons.

At $12 each from Rockauto (Enginetech #P47984) I likely order one for a test fit sometime over the summer. If I stick with racing the car as a C-sedan this might give a prayer against the 1380cc minis.

D I'm familiar with that car.

The Mazda twin cam head does routinely spring to mind but how many people actually have one running?

I also have all of the kit components (including the head) to bolt an E-series head on to the A series block but it also requires quite a bit of machine work to the block. I want something that bolts on otherwise I just assume change to a different motor.

So what North American model Mitsubishi cars were these dizzys in?

Matt I hear you on the long tow; that track is a 6 hour drive for me and I have to say it's probably as far as I wish to go on a regular basis.

As for more race parts that would be awesome as I'm pedaling the little car like a squirrel on large dose of meth. As you can tell I'm losing 5-6 car lengths or more down the longer straights. Of course it is loads of fun dragging the car forward. Dreams of cross flow heads are dancing in me head.................

While I really want to see another 1200 out I will also miss the big hole the Volvo punches in the air. My fastest lap was when I got a run off corners and was able to draft............from Phil Hill to the sweeper I actually got an extra 100 rpm.

Guess I'm going to have to build an actually motor rather than running the mildy tarted up street motor.

One of the Finnish rally guys I know was getting something like 220 wheel horsepower out of B20 engines. Now you all need to stop all this talk of Volvos or Stan is likely to desert us permanently for Swedish car forums.

The Volvo is a PV544 they are like a 3/4 scale 40's American car. I think they are around 2200lbs with driver and the motor in OGREInc's car may be around 175hp or so.

The video shows me the suspension is still a bit unruly. Obviously the motor is reeeeeally slow but for now I'm going to install some fresh Koni dampers on the front. I am going to fix the exhaust and change the worn dizzy to help the power but that's not exactly going to net the kind of power I need.

The manifolds on my car (one for each pair of cylinders) are made up of 5 parts; flat plate with tubular halfs welded together. The carbs attach to the manifold via what appears to be rubber fuel filler hose.
