    It's the CNC machined intake port of a new NASCAR small block head. From the best seller "How to make 900 HP from a small block." :D

    Cheers! Just on the other side of Mount Madonna. Welcome to cruise over and have a beer. Motorhome isn't much to look at right now, as the motorhome box is down in Salinas at the sandblaster/painter's place.

    Too lazy to read through 107 pages of posts to see if this made it. I like it. More cylinders the better, especially if its shaped like a doughnut!

    The MYT Engine. I just want one for my bike. :eek1

    From the chapter "It's About Flow"? I worked with a guy in Stockton who would hog out the intake/exhaust tracks on scrap small block heads and race. He did OK. I bet that on a dollar per place metric he did great.:rofl

    I was asked not to discuss numbers but IME most heads peter out around .7-.800" lift. This things flows BIG numbers w/no turbulence up to 1 inch of lift. The tool won't give any more so we cannot tell if it stops there with a valve in the hole. $20K each for a bare head!!! You oughta see the intake manifold. And the rocker arm ratios are nuts. I'm not a NASCAR fan but I am a gearhead and this engine is unreal.

    How about something a little different?

    This is a beach in Kauai that for years was used as a dumping ground for old vehicles. The beach is littered with decades worth of old crankshafts, engine blocks, intake manifolds, axles/diffs, etc etc that the salt water have taken their toll on.

    Never thought I'd spend hours taking pictures at a dump :lol3

    I've got lots more pictures (I can post later if anyone is interested) but this was one of my favorites, so I did a quick once-over

    Ya that's very cool nature had reclaimed her. Look at the colors meshing into and with the surrounding environment. Beautiful in odd way.

    I'm still in Kauai, and working on a netbook (exhausted from a hike yesterday, and avoiding raindrops) so excuse the I'm-too-lazy-to-go-over-each-photo batch processing. I've also had a few beers :freaky

    These aren't quite as exciting as the first image, but I think they're neat nonetheless. After all, where else you gonna find this stuff?

    Great pics! Makes you realize the earth will, over time, reclaim what it has given.

    Thanks for sharing
