Tubular SRT manifold for a daytona turbo? Ouch. Should have just used an SRT turbofold and welded a SOHC flange on that. Those things are dirt cheap anymore and will make more power than the daytona turbo.

Re: Radical NA build, 2.0 vs 2.4?

Crower doesnt measure their cams the same way that crane does. You cannot do an apples to apples comparison between them using normal spec numbers. I did a pretty large amount of research on this a few years ago and posted it here on the forums somewhere.

Re: Ford pistons, tell me why it wont work.

As a guy that has built and raced many many engines over the last few years, the 'no replacement for displacement' moniker is going the way of the dodo. A well designed setup trumps displacement any day, especially a high effort .2L gain.

Re: Ford pistons, tell me why it wont work.

Its an 8.3% increase in displacement and thins out the cylinder walls enough to be a concern in high power apps.

You can make a lot more than an 8% increase for about the same price with a basic nitrous kit. Nobody has put the effort into it because its not worth the effort.

I wouldn't do it. The water will eventually pool up in the intercooler. This leads to flow loss and under certain circumstances, possible hydro lock. I don't think the benefits are worth it.

Those cams are pretty big for a boost setup. I'd go with something smaller if you can't get the LSA high enough to bring back up the power.

chinese 420a turbo manifolds are pretty cheap on ebay. Might have firewall/alternator clearing issues, but they're a possibility.

To sum it up: Take your pick, 2.0 or 2.4, its not going to matter. Either way you won't be hitting 8k RPM in a daily driver. You'll need big cams to make power anywhere close to that which will give your car a poor idle and bad city economy. The 2.4 will make the same power at a lower RPM. So if RPM...
