    So you cut squish, what did you end up doing with the base? How much squish did you cut out?

    How did that leave your numbers?

    I can't remember did you bump timing when you did the coil

    Did you go for a little more intake or leave it at 78? Guessing you left the others where they were?

    Intake landed there. 83 was my original thought but that 78 sure was a convenient place to start.
    After base cut, with stock gasket, 109/144/78

    What’s compression like? I never took more than .035” and they would be 200 or a touch over

    Oh. I was thinking you had good squish after only the band cut. I doubt you can raise the exhaust above 100 without grinding through the flange. Maybe with a bell mouth you can

    I see. That makes sense.
    I originally ported a bb for mine and went through the flange roof trying to go straight out at 95. Guessing the oem has a thicker roof

    Okay so a normal after porting set of number in a 7900/7910 would be 98-100/128/85....roughly.

    I gotta draw this out and see how the two compare. It still confuses me a little bit.

    Some guys wouldn’t do that much intake.
    78-83 for a work saw.

    So you hit 78, and that is actually a better number I take it? Pardon my rookie questions.
