The seat is kind of set off to one side of the pocket, and the shape of the pocket/port on the long side induces a swirl.
It works, and it flows really well. Far better with it, than without it. The stock cam has absolutely no place in a turbo, or s/c motor. You may as well run restrictor plates, because that's what you're doing.
Run less boost (heat), and make more power. It's a win, win situation. The cam should be the FIRST thing to go.
My 226/395 cam would be a good choice.



Agreed. Thanks. I will be contacting you soon enough for a order. Lateral long side was just gradually blended to the seat diam. and lateral short side radius was reshaped/blended to the seat to encourage this factory designed swirl and airflow adhesion to the port wall rather than breaking away and turbulance obstructing flow at that edge of the valve. I assume we are mostly speaking of the intake side, but the exhaust side was also done using these guidelines. Looks like it should flow very well. The port is no longer shallow and has a more consistant radius to the entire port runner (high port sorta speak.)

the only barb fitting that really matters is the bypass valve actuator. the one on the top side (multi outlet) is for vaccume accessories.

Still waiting on my machinest. My motor should be ready for pickup and assembly this week.(if im lucky)...i'm deciding to forge on with the samurai mechanical rockers and the 226* @.050"/ .395" lift 3tech...cam.. zoom zoom. I also finished up the carb. It has 44 jets, a 25 squirter, pink cam on #1 hole and stock pvcr's for now. I feel this should give me a pretty good place to start. It has the 30cc pump, and quick change bowl. I have a 50cc reo if needed! It also has the stock suzuki issue throttle cable lever grafted on. I also safty wired the centr. advance in the distributor for a lockout for ez baseline tuning. I will utillize the vac. advance for increased cruise timing. Should work out well. Here's some pics for now.

you should have put a GT oil pump and oil pan instead

whats the difference? gt and gti parts are nearly nonexistant around these parts... the pan is a "windage trayed" type of pan, aside form some extra baffles and more capacity, i dont see where it would be of benifit... revs will be kept below 7500.

the oil pump is better, and the oil pan doesn't have a crank sensor hole to be deleted. aside from that there's no difference in the pan. I said GT but a mk2-3 oil pan is the same as a GT oil pan.

thanks dudes...and thanks alot mike (superf1y)..i cant wait to hear it run...my rockers are ready..

paint is duplicolor ceramic 500* low gloss black from checker. i always liked ed pink's racing motors...always blacked out. looks fast and classy i think..good way to hide speed parts too! The valve cover and intake are sprayed with Harley Davidson brand wrinkle paint.

fuel will be just pump premium..once i get a solid tune on 92, i'll sort out a e85 tune..the stock fuel system parts are plenty capeable of handeling e85..

well, i managed to get out to the garage and got a little done..not much but each step gets me ahead... i will use a 1" carb spacer to distance the carb from the (plenum) floor for better atomization out of the carb prior to entry into the charger..also to allow the bowl to clear the terminal on the dist. cap. i have a little finishing to do on it in the am...here are some more pics for 'yall... made of a 2.5" mandrel bend and a cut down collector reducer cone opens it up to 3" for the blower inlet. light and strong...

well heres my header..06 gsxr750..awsome collectors (tri Y) and long primaries...just waiting on its arrival. then it'll get modified for use in this build. cool i think.. cost 30 bucks. cant beat the workmanship. light weight too...really light weight...and, the supercharger's mass is placed behind the front axle centerline, which should all aid in the handleing department...

its in the car! ...i have to finish up some little odds and ends, and im going to, again, revise the carb elbow as it sits above the hood which is no bueno. more tommorrow. looks good. i installed short block 1st, then the completed head/blower assy. its amazing it clears the starter and everything else..so far so good. i plan on road tripping in it by next weekend..150 mile trip...just in case.

This is a surprisingly simple and straightforward setup, looks much easier than turbo :) may have to try this one myself when I get time and money :) Awesome work man! Do you think this would be possible with the 16v SOHC with MPFI? Use a TB instead of the carb? The 16V has higher starting HP so maybe a slightly more efficient setup with it? A little more work for the intake, fuel injector ports would have to be added, but I think that would be reasonable for the extra control via computer of fuel/air mix.
