    Nice, I was very close to putting B16 pistons in my B18C also. I'd like to know how it turns out. I bet you make about 180. I made 186whp on my B18C with toda pistons and CTR cams. You should be close to that.

    churches dyno reads high too. dynapaks generally read higher then dynojets.

    your hp is dropping off because your trq dropped off, did you blow a headgasket or something on the dyno?

    no i didnt, or i hope i didnt. . . . .

    church said that its prob my valve adjustment and that it might be a lil loose. Because my head was making some ticking sounds at idle. he gave me the explaination that if your valve adjustment is off or to loose, it'll make the cams essentially smaller, with a smaller lift and shorter duration, which could cause the loss of power uptop.

    if i had blown something wouldnt my power be suffering all over the chart, and not just at the top end and wouldnt my TQ be lower if something was wrong?

    another idea was my exhaust. . . but 1st im going to do a valve adjustment

    i reaally dont think the problem is exuast valves...

    sure loose valves will make the cam "smaller" but i dont see that effecting it THAT much. i mean if you are .001 too loose it only makes the cam .001 off. not that much really.

    just my opinion that the problem is elsewhere

    that header is undoubtedly killing power too.
    your setup would benefit from more aggressive cams too

    thanks for the info, but yesi agree its prob my shitty exhaust system, from the header back. . . dc's arent all that great, but then again i got them for free ( haha ), then theres my muffler shop muffler which is prob very restrictive. . . would a restrictive exhaust effect the results that much?
