As most people are aware, I have been selling cams for the 3, and 4cyl. motors. Interest in the 3cyl. stuff has far exceeded interest in anything else. I have another 3cyl. part being tested by a few members, that will be available only if positive results are reported.
B'villetom, and I are committed to making horsepower, and setting speed records with the 1.0l 3cyl. He has spent considerable time on the flow bench, and dyno and has been a HUGE help in my efforts to make the most of my car, and develop parts. Having the equipment and experience to make these parts available, also gives us the chance to pay for the development of new parts.
I am well aware that, while lots of fun, our 3cyl. cars will never really be truly fast, but they everything that we want them to be, and in that, I am not alone.
Because the race season is upon us, I am done developing for the year. Cams will still be available, and plans for a reasonably priced, rebuit, ported,and flowed high compression 3cyl. head are ongoing.
We know exactly what it takes to make a 3cyl. motor go, and we have some future parts planned.
That said, what do YOU 3cyl. guys want to see for your motors? Is their something that you think we shuold be working on, or one part that you wish you had?
Please let me know.

High volume oil pump! good suggestion!

btw gti flywheel which is lighter than the G10 flywheel will fit nicely.

Will take a pic of my 4.5L oil pan ;)

I want one! I want one!

A lightened and balanced crank and con rods would be a nice one to see too. Maybe with a side order of shot-peening too :D

Not enough eh? How about a 4 bolt block, forged crank and pistons, h-beam rods, and a 12 valve head! :D

Go post this on the Yahoo Metro and Swift Club. Most of those people are 1-liter fanatics.

i'd like to see someone make a ram intake system, a header-back exhaust system(or header and turbo-back)
i'd like to find a chip that actually works on a 3 cyl and turbo3, and what about fuel rails?
all these gti guys are loaded with parts, us pre-'89 guys need love too eh?

I guess the cat is out of the bag. If you read the review section, you will find out about the 'advanced timing' gear for the 3cyl. motors. While dyno testing a Metro headed 1.0l motor, B'villetom discovered a surprise hp improvement while advancing the cam timing. It peaked at about 10 degrees, and 5hp. An improvement somewhere in the order of about 9%. With that info, and the mock 3cyl setup on my bench, I started degreeing stock cams and found that the cams in the 89-up motors are factory installed pretty late, hence the results. I did a little math, and made up 3 jigs on the milling machine that allow me to modify the stock timing gear for a fixed setting of +6, +8, and +10 degrees. 2 are being tested, and 1 is ready for installation in a small aircraft shortly. If there is interest, and maybe even if there isn't, I intend to sell them for about $20 ea. It should be the best $20 improvement you can make.

Mike,
Post this on the Yahoo Group so those people can have a chance to buy one. At 20 bucks, they will sell like hotcakes on a Sunday morning.

Good work F1y!
I'm not far from one of your test subjects, I'm gonna have to meet up with him and check out his ride. :)

mike,

which one did you send me? i took a quick glance at it with my antique degree wheel and roughed it at 5* advance. is it the 6* or 8*?

to more closely meet your desired test platform, i'll be running it on a lightly prepped head (intake and exhaust port matching, exhaust runner porting and polishing) a 2" exhaust and a modified high flow induction filter. i'll bolt it up to the 5 spd vert and run it over the summer while i take my time on doing the detail work on the turbo3 powerplant.

But I can vouch for the quality of F1y's goodies, good workmanship and performance.

I didn't want to tell you, because I didn't want it to temper the results, but you cheated. :D
I can't remember,. I'll have to look it up, but if you got 5, then it was probably the 6 degree sprocket.
How do you think it looks, for a stock sprocket?
