I can't get my head around it.

The BA/BF block is carry over from EF/EL/AU...

you could do the "krogdahl" double over head cam conversion... was very expensive though... not sure if the company that does the conversion is still around..

plus, isn't the head a fair bit longer in the barra, due to the twin cam or something?
As I recall JetXR had a big f**k hole in his bonnet to fit the engine in.

The DOHC head looks wider, so i'd assume the top of the block is also wider.

Then all ya gotta do is ask :wink:

The difference is about 13-15kw (I can't remember I lost my first printout... :oops: )

The blue line is pre-cam. The red line is with cam.

I'm expecting a higher figure when I have it re-dynoed later in the year as it was putting out noticabley more power after about a week two from the install. Not sure why, but it just was...
