I just installed a JDM redtop motor in my 86, and it doesnt feel like it was as quick as it was before with my bluetop, I am using the bluetop ecu and was wondering if thats my problem? If anyone has any ideas please help, thanks!!
IF you run redtop everything, (efi, injectors, ecu etc.) you get 140 crank hp (whats that +10 from the stock bluetop?). since you are using bluetop EFI, most likely bluetop IM w/ adapter. the only real difference that might be felt is that the redtop is probably less "tired" (has less miles) then your stock bluetop.
i did my hicomp swap a year ago, it feels sluggish under 4K, because 1) no more tvis, 2) heavier internals but once you get past that, it pulls a lot harder than the bluetop that it replaced. im using IK20 denso plugs, hicomp fuel rail, hicomp fpr, hicomp injectors (resistor bypass), bluetop efi and bluetop IM w/ adapter.
also, redtop motors have less lift on both in/ex cams. and the motor is designed to be used with the redtop IM that doesnt use tvis. you go and stick the tvis IM and im sure it messes sh!t up
