Forgot to mention I am using the e12 cylinder head because I got this motor from the junkyard and it looked like the pistons and valves were starting to get to know eachother too well, as well as I had a e12 cylinder head from my b28 rebuild sitting around. I know its not the strong one since it was...

After doing some more trials but with it sealed better and better equipment i was getting on average of 57-60cc for each cylinder. After talking to someone els who modifies m30's he said that all m30 heads have the same cc exept the b35 meaning the e12 head should have around 58cc but i think it can...
