Yeah, what's high compression to you? 1. You can't run a stock carburetor with the DTM, so you'll need duals. 2. If you run dual 2-barrels, like 36 IDFs, you can safely run about 8.25:1 on 91 octane. ...

Just run a factory or 36hp shroud. More compression might not even raise temps if the compression is adequate for the valve events. Are you using another cam than stock?

Give em at least 80% wet. They’re not round till they get tightened up.

If you do reduce the deck, either machine the case or shorten the barrels. Up to you. 7.7 is fine for a stock cam. Anything other than stock will want more cr.

Any body have any tips for compressing the springs enough to do a good install with them?

Muscle, or some nylon-lined channel locks for electrical connectors.

Use the Type 1 M10 head washers. They'll fit better in the T4 over the T1. I have them if you need some. The nuts are special - M10 thread, 17mm O.D., but heavy instead of shallow.

Comparing T1 to T4 prices isn't as straightforward as looking up individual parts prices for each because both base engines require different work to make similar power. The Type 4 has a very stout cr ...

Yeah, CB outers. I used a set on a 2276 that peaked at 6000 rpm with a V26 (.521" lift at the valve). I sell Statesides too, if you're interested.

In a T4

Crank still has no flexing issues

Valvetrain is still more stable

Heads still have more surface area

Pushrod alignment is still better

The 1700 case is the case you would want to get when building a performance t4. It's only sad that you can't get anymore t4 case brand new and no one is making aftermarket cases for the t4.

Largest is a 106.8 using the standard 115mm barrel. It'll have a 4.1mm/.161" wall at the head.
