This engine

http://www.aircooledtechnology.com/r_d_engine.htm

will equal or surpass that within the next two weeks. Remember alfred, its not rocket science...

Try building one of these engines, you'll pull your teeth out... BUT mine opens a whopping 10 degrees SOONER than the cam that most people use with these pistons...

Who knows if it will work, but I'll let you know if it does or not!

Jake, how do you feel about those two guys in Holland who have produced the OHC Apfelbeck head for the T-4 motor?

Not ME!
Jake - Log me out.

Jake says:

It just takes money..... LOL The 3.0 is not an engine I will ever produce for a customer, Donald Trump doesn't have enough money to finance me to build one! If it was ever sold, it would have a price tag over what many more modern engines sell for, simply due to my hellacious labor..

I do have many affordable engines that can gain you double factory power with no negative effects in longevity or reliability...

The 3.0 is as crazy as I am.....

and it has a damn radiator, and is about as generic as a white T shirt..

I don't think a 914 is an "applicable GM vehicle" is it??

Yes, but when you drop in that 454 motor the cars balance is all f'd up. Handling is what these cars are about but having 250hp in one (3.2 six) is nice for quick bursts up to 100mph.

Nah... I'm a firm believer that a specialist has to pick his patient..

The -6 has too many experts already.

I like playing with the under dog.

I do mess with sixes that are older than 2.7, I know nothing about the later models..

Jake, can you tell us what these "squishy" pistons are and why they are "detonation proof"? I read your R&D page (actually, your whole website numerous times ) and don't understand what "squishies" are or what your new "Nickies" are. I started a thread about the squishies on the 911BBS and nobody there seems to have heard of them. But if you can get 221 reliable hp from a 2.3 litre flat four, then in theory my 964 3.6 should be able to make 344 hp. And those are the sorts of gains that make 911 owners go all gooey inside !! So please tell, what is this mad science you are creating ?

To answer your question, Nickies aren't something new, as I've been making them for almost 4 years now. I have a whole line of billet aluminum nikasil cylinders for all Porsches. Jake has used my cylinders since they were just prototypes and has helped me with development of new product lines. Pelican is a distributor for Nickies and should have everything in their catalog with exception of my latest additions of 2.0 /6 and 3.0-3.8 /6 cylinders. If you have any questions about them, shoot away and i'd be more than happy to clarify if there's any confusion.

That didn't answer his question about 'squishy' pistons nor what 'Nickies' are. You just told us that they've been around for a few years and you are the engineer behind them...

Toby, take a second to read over my post. I clearly stated what they are (cylinders) and what they are available for (all porsches) if you think about it for just a second. I didn't think I needed to connect the dots. I don't go into more detail because on the other end of the spectrum, I get chewed out for unsolicited advertising. I guess I can't win. You're welcome to read my website or look them up in the Pelican catalog if you care that much :-) Squishies are just pistons that are for exhaust favored combustion on a compact wedge style chamber, designed by an outfit going by the name of Aircooled.net. I can't say much more about them because they make you sign an NDA. Feel free to ask away...
