998 Cylinder Head 31mm & 26mm for use with Unleaded Fuel
$2190.95 998 Cylinder Head 31mm & 26mm for use with Unleaded Fuel
Approx 23.5cc combustion chambers for use with dished pistons. This specification of cylinder head is the only modified version for the small-bore based engines Mini Mania supply as it is judged to be the only one worth up-grading to. Based on used core castings, it is modified to current road-sports style to maximize road-sports and track day/weekend-warrior performance when used with road-sports and super-sports camshaft specifications. That means optimized BHP and torque out-put through port shape and dimensions and valve throat shapes developed on airflow bench and dyno/rolling roads to work with the aforementioned camshaft types, along with suitable compression ratios given modern lead-free fuel specifications. High quality Serdi lead-free exhaust seat inserts are fitted. Latest specification manganese-bronze valve guides are used along with the latest specification plasma-nitrided EN214N stainless steel (30.93mm inlet and 26.5mm exhaust) and 180lb (nominal at maximum valve lift) double valve springs to give a cylinder head capable of withstanding a maximum continual peak rpm limit of 7,500rpm and 0.475" actual valve lift. Suitable for auto-testing, hill-climbs and track day use. Combustion chambers are set at an average 23.5cc for dished pistons. 9-stud fitting as standard. This head has the heater take-off port open and a by-pass hose adapter fitted. Both or either can be blanked off as needed.

Classic Mini Cylinder head - What can easily be achieved

The engine build I recently covered in previous Mini Magazine issues developed into a bit of an ongoing 'project'. During a discourse with the editorial staff at Mini Mag, it was decided the build feature presented an ideal opportunity to demonstrate just exactly what such an engine build is capable of in days where it's generally believed you have to have an all-singing, all-dancing 1380cc engine to have an enjoyable road burner - leaving those with very limited budgets a little depressed.

Following on from the easily bolted on performance enhancing components out-lined in the stage one section, we need to consider where to go to get more power output. To improve the 998cc engine out-put, you need to increase the engine's 'breathing' ability. The stage one kit deals with all the easily bolted-on external parts, and represents the best increase for investment.
Why It's Important To Identify Your Classic Mini Cylinder Heads
Created: January 30, 2000
Everybody has their own opinion on this subject. The most experienced people will tell you that the best way to maintain your engine performance is to accept the fact that valve jobs need to be done 2 or 3 times more often than rings and bearings! And this data base was concluded when leaded gas was the norm! Now that unleaded is all you can get, valve jobs are needed even more often! The purpose of a valve job is two fold; first the valve seats. The impurities in the air and gas often get trapped between the valve and the seat in the head; under worst conditions stopping the valve from closing, but more commonly being smashed enough to allow just a little seepage of hot gases.

A selected range of modified cylinder heads are available to suit a wide variety of applications. All port and chamber modifications are carried out by experts to current state of the art specifications. Therefore, actual specifications may alter slightly as gas flow and port velocity efficiency improvements are developed. Where large bore heads are used on small bore engines (i.e. 12G940 casting on 948/1098cc block), it is necessary to check full lift of exhaust valve, and pocket the block as necessary.
