I'm looking for shop that specializes in Opel head work. Looking for porting, polishing and big valves for a bored and stroked 1.9L.

Thanks

The phone number is "not in service". Anyone else out there that has experience in this work?

Paeco

Paeco, out of Birmington Alabama, used to work on Opels some, and still have the tooling to do it. Expect to spend @$750 for ported, polished, milling, oversized valves and springs, andthe whole works assembled.

They also sell a stage 2 engine they claim is good for 152Hp for $4700. ($3900 if you assemble it yourself.)

Their # is 205-823-7278, or you can email at [email protected]. I have experienced their work on a fes old Datsuns and MG's and been impressed, but I've never been able to afford their work myself. Their catalog also lists a 6 or 9# aluminum flywheel for $470 plus $129 for the ring gear and their header for $210, for a rough cost comparison.

I was on the phone with Roger last week discussing the mods he did to my "New" Opel Senator. The phone number (Tel: (XXX)-860-6550) is correct but the area code has changed. I'll post the correct one when I get home.

Edit: Roger's number is 562-860-6550

How 'bout a plug for TGSI Racing

TGSI Racing still does Opel heads....

Just got mine a few weeks back. Looks great, but I don't have the new engine in the car yet to give the "seat of the pants" results.
I'll keep everone informed.
