Athena or Millenium 436?

Recommended Posts

I did a search but the threads were all a couple of years old.

Anyone know what the pricing is doing here and now, and what's been proven about either?

I think Eddie is still using the MT kits, since that's what he sent Neil.

I used the mt on mine a couple of years ago and have had no problems with it at all.

I wouldn't hesitate to use the athena though, they have an excellent reputation as far as I've heard.

I guess it depends on how fast you want to spend!

However one has 13:1 and one has 12.5:1 CR. I'll be stuffing RHC cams in there, but since all I get for fuel up here is 91 I should probably go with as low compression as possible. I have all winter to get this sorted...

Any idea what comp you get if you use a 13:1 kit with an ´s´base gasket? Might be the cheapest way of getting a big-bore and use pump gas??

I installed the athena a month or 2 ago now and it had everything in the kit. With a shop manual I did my first engine rebuild and had no problems. Nothing wrong with the athena.

Very interested in this as well. Also, Eddie, why with RHC cams could you run more compression.

For example 13:1 440bore, rhc cams, at sea level with fcr 39 and 91 octane. E or S base gasket?

Safe or :thumbsup: ?

the RHC cams have alot more duration.you can get away with more compression becuase the valves are open longer.
