Topic: Gasflow 20v Head

Hi Guys

I have a quote of R5.000 for gasflowing and valve work for my 20v. The question, is it worth that money. Money vs Gains

Thanks

Re: Gasflow 20v Head

That depends purely on what supporting mods you intend to do.  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

Re: Gasflow 20v Head

With just the above mods you listed It would not be advisable as your gains will be very minimal and you won't really feel the difference in power.

What about adding Ram Tubes, Verniers and Branch instead of a gas flow? These 3 mods will cost you around 5k unless you go with aftermaket products which cost alot more than our locally made products.  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

Re: Gasflow 20v Head

You might end up with less power after flowing a BT head. Its perfect as is bud ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/smile
But you will want to look into better retainers and springs.

Re: Gasflow 20v Head

I disagree, depends on the quality of the gas flow.  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

As state above it depends purely on the workmanship of the gas flow.

R4500 is a good price and DJ H can vouch for VDL.
Anyone on here have a Mike Dixon 20v head?
