Hillman Imp competition or fast road cylinder head

This 108 series sport head and R20 camshaft is ready to fit to its new 998cc short engine but first we need the other small parts arrive from one of our UK suppliers. Then we can finish fitting the cars under body and turn the Imp shell 180 degrees to start on that side of the project.

Left click the picture for more detail.

The R20 competition camshaft,camshaft carrier and tappet followers are all brand new and an import to this project,the steel inlet and exhaust manifold is made here in South Africa,we export those when we can get them,there is normally a waiting list!

Attention was made to hand fit the new inlet/exhaust gasket.

With all new parts,including bronze guides and BMW oil seals,the setting up of the head still took some five hours to get right.

We can supply gas flowed Mk1 and Mk2 cylinder heads to order,also small or large bore fabricated exhaust manifolds.
