    Popped up in a message from a mate. Any thoughts, fellow 8v fans?

    Looks like they are used by lots of South American drag racers.

    I do like they hype though, testing at 28 in of pressure drop to report a number.

    Also as mush flow as a 16v, thing is which 16v?

    Cost vs benefits vs specific application vs race class IMO.

    500-600 dollars I've seen. Which in fairness isn't expensive, assuming you have a good counterflow or ABA to swap out the cam, lifters etc from.
