I've been getting lots of interest lately for the head package, but all my cores are still out.
I guess I need to take trip to the wreckers, and get some more cores.
Hopefully in the next week, or so.

I need to keep the 1.0 litre engines flat power and torque curve in the same spot of the rpm range ideally.

I need to make more torque, HP and fuel economy in the stock torque curve.

can this be done.

I also wish to do at least 100 heads per year.

also what is the best years for the following with part numbers.

lout of all possible combinations I need the ightest and strongest 3 cylinder block, crank, rods and head and intake.

also lightest starter and altenator.

any gun drilled cams.


best year for good , strong and lightweight pistons and wristpins.

also best efi and ignition setup and best computer and wiring harness.

thanks,

Volksplaner

Yes, sorry, I didn't see this before.

The price will be the same as the other packages, USD$375/exchange, or on your head. I currently have 6 customers waiting for me to get cores, so you will have to send me a head, or wait till I get some. I will have to mill the head, at least .010" to make sure it is flat. For the torque and horsepower, it will appear to benefit a car that is heavier(95-up) more than the earlier, lighter cars, mostly due to the increased low end torque. Mileage will increase, but as yet, I don't have the MPG numbers in from testing yet. They are coming soon.

Those are good questions.
Because MPG isn't the driving force of these products, I can't really tell you what to expect in mileage gains. Performance gains will be large, and concentrated mostly in the lower RPM range, below 4-5k. I will try to get some mileage numbers today from my tester. For the s/c application, the standard performance head will be perfect, with only the cam option being a variable.
The cc's would be anywhere from about 20 to 30cc.
I wouldn't bother with forged pistons. You shouldn'r need them. The stock ones are of excellent quality.

Hey Superf1y,
It's Robie from isuzone with the turbo Storm.

I am getting a set of high compression forged pistons for a 1.0L MPG project and my dealer is wondering what the head CC volume is too.
If you get a chance, let me know!

BTW, the old isuzone site took a dive and a new site is in it's place:
http://www.isuzone.org
There is no verdor section yet as they are still rebuilding it all.

I'm not sure why you would do that. The stock pistons are so good, and the head can be milled for stupid high compression. If you want, you can use early 85-88 pistons. Clearance is OK, and 14-1 shouldn't be a problem.
Let me get involved a bit in your project, maybe I can help out, or at least provide a little guidance. I know these 3's like you know the Isuzu's.
Stock chamber is 30cc

Would 14:1 work with from the pump gas paired with a cam and a +10 gear of yours Superfly? (just for interests sake, and something to think about for the semi-near future....)

You might be able to get it to work with 94 octane, and water injection. On the other hand, maybe not. Thats pretty high.

what kind of performance & fuel increase is expected for the fuel economy head package? I'm wanting to get the most mpg out of my stock 93 1.0L metro & better power can always help out the g10.


I just got word, that in 5 tanks of fuel, the economy cam showed an improvement of 8%-9% in fuel mileage. The biggest benefit being in the way that it provided superior low end power, and better drivability to the heavier 97 car that it was installed in.

For those that may have interest, I now have 89-up 3cyl. core heads for the performance/economy head package. I have found an excellent supplier, so if there is interest in any other head packages, I should be able to get reasonably priced cores now.

Haha..posted every where else...finally found this thread...


Anyways...I have a '97 Geo Metro 1.0L. I think my head is warped from a stint of overheating that happened. I am leaking oil from around the point where the head and block meet. I am assuming its the head and gasket.


So if I got one of your head packages would I need to send mine in anymore? If so, would it work with a warped one?


I know I am full of questions..and thanks for reading.

Also, which would your recommend? Do you like one setup better than the other?

You don't have to send yours. I can do an exchange, or outright purchase. I can re-use a warped head. As long as its not cracked. Depending on what you are after, my best street setup is port/polish, 10.5-1 compression, and 220/.365 cam. If that is too much, then the 218/.350 cam. The +10 timing advance sprocket compliments this combo.

What would you suggest? ...and what are the costs of each?

I am not going for a racer here...just a lil more oomph would be nice.


...and can a car inclined person like me do the replacement?

If I did buy one could I send you the other one after I receive the new one? It's my only car so I can't give it up until I got the replacement.

Again, sorry so many questions!

I would go with the milder 218/350
Cost is the same.
USD$375/exchange. You can send me your head back later. I may require a small refundable deposit on it.
+10 sprocket is $25. Shipping is about $30.

Its a pretty straightforward job, especially if you are a car guy.
You won't have any problems.
