After reading this, especially about the different heads, my brain hurts, I'm in the army for a reason geese

 

Welcome to HybridZ. B) As you noticed, this forum isn't much for entry level Z owners but more of an advanced forum for those building or already experiencing high-performance Z cars on a whole new level. :2thumbs:

For "out of the box shopping" Kameari offers an upgraded head, an N42 I believe, featuring something called an "Argon" welded combustion chamber. This head also features 46/38 valves and various cam specs. I don't understand the techno lingo beacause they aren't given in degrees of duration and/or in. of lift like we do in the US.

The other question is what would the compression be?

I have recently run across several clips of Japanese Zeds making well in excess of 300hp and one such NA L6 boasting 409ps or about 403 hp!

Additionally they are doing 11sec runs on the strip; albeit some are using a dog box though.

Eji Hosimi, of Northern VA, has an Argon welded N42 on his 3.1 stroker and he has managed 12.4 1/4mi.

I wish I had the money.

if im not mistaken the "argon" part is just an inert gas used while welding. as the welder combined the metals, an argon is released around the filler rod in order to prevent contaminants from getting mixed in the weld, reducing chance for corrosion.
