......................Regarding the 36 hp figure, we'll wait and see.Being that I have seen and flow-bench tested the UCE head, and know what is in there, I can say that it will need more than a 3mm overbore and a "throttle body and exhaust", to get there..........
The cam profiles are key to ANY real performance enhancement. Anyone who thinks a larger piston & some port polishing is enough is using a "big hammer" kinda approach.I'd like to see the mod be a 535 piston & new cams (with requisite injector & exhaust work).
::opinion mode ON ::recalling my days building JeeP engines ....seems to me, high-lift, short duration cams with a relatively small angle between the peaks is a formula for a high-torque, low RPM engine. The higer performing engines had a larger angle between lobes, and, a longer duration ..... scavenging and all that ....::opinion mode off::I respect the time it takes to design a street-able modification kit that will be both economical and worthy of the investment to mass-produce. Ace has taken on a monumental task here !!!!
Ace, was the development of the original Fireball more or less straightforward than the UCE?And very glad to hear that progress is being made.Scott
Maybe I'm all wet but it seems to me that perhaps a slight increase in the valve lift coupled with changing both cams to increase the dwell and overlap condition could increase the flow at higher speeds.If this were coupled with some exhaust and inlet tuning to take advantage of the overlap a improvement in the upper RPM range might be possible.Of course this would require a revision of the ECU to accommodate the higher RPM and the lower would probably need modifying to keep it all together.Just thinking...
It's questionable if the owners really want to rev higher, or if a good solid power curve up to 5500 rpm would suit them for most purposes.
