Re: 1987 Daytona Shelby Z Project

I never had any problems running a G head on a 2.5 Turbo.

The "slow burning" chamber design, as opposed to the "fast burn" and reduced compression made them more detonation tolerant.

Ideal characteristics on a higher than stock boost turbocharged Engine.

Thanks
Randy

Re: 1987 Daytona Shelby Z Project

Didn't see this thread till now. Too bad, I would of suggested going with a 2.5 bottom end on that thing. One of the best upgrades to my 87 ShelbyZ I ever did. Much easier to drive. Still just as fast. Loves air flow mods. Out-revved the 2.2 it replaced at the track.
