Corvair Turbo Heads 1964 150 hp

I have a pair of bare heads off a 164 cubic inch engine from 1964. Although rated at 150 hp these are really the heads used on the 180 hp engine from 65 and on. The only reason they kept it at 150 hp is because the turbo was not the same. They made upgrades in 65 to the turbo. These have the normal ...

Exhaust Valve Questions

I was just looking inside the exhaust chambers for my 1964 110 hp head and it looks like a kink in the exhaust side! Has anyone ever milled that groove off down near to the guides because I don't know how the exhaust can get through there? It's like a 90 degree turn. Sent from my iPhone using Corvai...

Re: Engine rebuild

If I were to get the Isky 260 cam would that make the compression higher since that cam is rated at 9.5:1

Re: Will OverBoring Cause Overheating?

Also, if a 2 carb setup were not to work, what would be the difference between a 150 setup turbo and a 180 turbo setup? The engine is 164 cubic inch but is from 1964. I think that they didn't come out with 180 hp until 1965? Would a 180 work fine with this engine I have? Sent from my iPhone using Co...

Re: Valve Questions

Ok if I were just going to change this motor to a 110 with two rochesters would I get the 110 valves and would they work with this turbo head? What other modifications do I need?

Re: Will OverBoring Cause Overheating?

Ok I don't intend on doing high rpms but just want a solid driver. I see that Clarks has an Isky 270 cam is that the best all around cam as Clarks says for a daily driver? I also have found Isky 300 cams which look like way too much rpms? The Isky 260 is also interesting since they say it's a "low t...
