Reverse Port
Anyone who knows anything about a reverse port engine please get in touch with me. Who ran one, valve sizes, cam specs, etc. Thanks!

Over two years and no response. LOL I know these engines were super rare but somebody's got to know someone who was there...... Any input on one of these setups is welcome. If I still get no response I'll post my setup in the Advanced Forum and let the experts tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks -

i believe ive only ever seen one in a picture, it was a smokey yunic engine, a standard BBC bottom end, (with smokey nothing was propably standard though) and it had eight intake stacks, four on each sidewhere the exhaust usually goesm and the headders looked like somone had disembowled a robot ontop of the engine. the side bar in the magazine explained that reversing the port confoguration on the engine allowed for better exhaust tuning (180 degree headder) and higher intake port (it looked like it was somwhere slightly under horizontal so atheast as good as a vertical stack arangement on comparable Can Am engines, forgit to mention that was the purpose of it, Can Am racing,
