Okay another quick question ... and don't go off at me again, I'm just throwing this out there.

I read an article the other day about the AMG Galant and it said among other things that the AMG engine could rev happily to 8000 rpms without an issue. Anyone know what sort of head the AMG had or the spring/retainer setup it used.

I know it is probably a moot point, given that this type of build isn't about top end power, I'm just wondering if there is more to this AMG Cyclone manifold idea. I also wondered how 'specific' springs are. Assuming the ability to run an 8000 redline was there, could you use OEM springs from any other application that regularly see higher rpms. I'm not sure how much work would be involved (I have never rebuilt a head) but I am guessing it is probably easier and just as cheap to buy aftermarket springs? Just interested in other options.



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!

stock springs could do it on a very mild cam which they were using, but slightly stiffer springs on stock valve train with a mild cam would give you the peace of mind. Revving to 8000 is no major feat in the DOHC 4 cyl world. Honda kids constantly laugh at our redlines, i usually see them doing it, in my rear view mirror.

^ LOL Thanks Josh. I'm still looking at this AMG intake idea and wondering if it is worth pursuing.

Quoting curtis:

Paul cyclone flows 2 less CFM than a usdm stocker. A bigger plenum helps with this, If you can find an amg cyclone you got that problem fixed, because it has the larger box on it. Barry posted pictures of the differences a few months back.




Might have a lead on one of these. Guy is selling it with a complete AMG head, AMG throttle body, Spark Plug Cover, injectors and cables/plugs etc. I think I'm going to get it just for the intake because it's a good price but is anything else in there usable (head, throttle body)?

AMG redline is 7500rpm, it would seem silly to have an 8000rpm redline when it makes its peak power at 6750rpm. My 6A12 MIVEC V6 on the other hand had a 8000rpm redline, but it made peak power at 7500rpm.

A lot of the parts on an AMG engine are common to regular 2.0L galants, I made a list a while back...

So the head is basically junk in a turbo application? And the throttle body? Any larger?
