"I have seen manifolds that look similar to the Golden Eagle Mfg. before. Is there any difference?"
Golden Eagle Mfg. is the original designer of the billet intake manifold. We produced the manifold for numerous other companies before we put our name on it. Although some other manifolds "look" the same, all the power is in the design features you can't see.
"Do all the stock sensors bolt up on the manifold?"
Yes, our manifolds were designed to accept
all the stock sensors. All that needs to be purchased are some NPT ( pipe ) to hose barb fittings for some vacuum lines and the heater core supply. These items can be purchased for a couple of bucks from a local hardware store.
GVC101 / Oil Turbo Feed
"I want to use this kit for a turbo oil feed only, can I do that?"
Yes, this kit can be used as a turbo oil feed only unit. There are two ports in the unit. One is a 1/8"NPT ( pipe ) thread port and the other is a large -8AN O-Ring ( boss ) fitting.. We also sell adapters that change the large port in the distribution block to a 1/8 or 1/4" NPT ( pipe ) thread in case you wish to use an oil pressure sensor sending unit or an oil temperature sensor.
"What size hose does the VTEC Conversion Kit use for the turbo oil supply to the head for VTEC?"
We used a -6AN fitting for this. The hose can be bought through Golden Eagle Mfg. or from a specialty hose and fitting store.
Adjustable Cam Gears
"What is torque spec for the cam gear bolts?"
The torque spec across the board for all of our cam gears is 18 ft. lbs.
"How do you read the lines on the Golden Eagle Mfg. ADJUSTRU cam gears?"
This is the easiest ways to line up the correct degree on any cam gear. It is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. No more squinting and trying to get the lines that you “think“ are the correct degrees to line up. The following will help you get your bearings on how to use this scale.
First, you need to set the gear at 0 °( degrees ) by lining up the “ 0 “ line on the outer with the “ 0 “ line on the inner. This is easily done by centering the bolts in the slots.
Notice how the “ 0 “ line on the outer lines up with the “ 0 “ line on the inner and the bolts are centered in the slots. Also note that the further most lines on the inner are both under the 9° mark in both the Advanced and Retard section. This helps in finding true 0°.
Next, the “ A “ and the “ R “ indicate the Advanced and Retard section of the cam gear. If you rotate the inner to the right ( clockwise ) you will be in the Retard section and if you rotate the inner to the left ( counter-clockwise ) you will be in the advanced section. There is also an arrow that shows the rotation of the gear while the motor is running.
Lets say you want to set the gear at 4° Advanced. All you will need to do is rotate the inner to the left ( counter-clockwise ) until a line matches up with the “ 4° “ mark on the outer.
This rule applies to any degree adjustment you will need to make when using these cam gears.
Rule of thumb, 0° is always when a line on the inner lines up with the “ 0 “ line on the outer and the bolts are centered in the slots. When adjusting to a certain degree, focus your eye on the degree you desire, either in Advance or Retard, and rotate the inner until a line matches up with your desired outer degree mark.
"I have a stock cam seal that is leaking. Will the Golden Eagle Mfg. help me out?"
Yes, this is exactly why we produced the cam seal. We are actually the first company to mass produce the seal for other companies. Now, with our own seal, you can remove and replace it without the worry of nasty oil leaks. With a triple o-ring design, leaks are a thing of the past.
"What size hole is in the Golden Eagle Mfg. HI-FLOW fuel rail?"
We opted for an 11/16" (.6875") hole. This is the largest hole on the market. We designed the rail for racers to supply enough fuel for over 1000 H.P. and it works great for a street car. "What size fittings can I use in my Golden Eagle Mfg. HI-FLOW fuel rail?"
We opted to use a -8AN O-Ring ( boss ) fitting
in the rail. We also sell fittings that allow you to use -6, -8
and -10 AN hose and fittings for fuel supply.
"What is a block guard and how does it work?"
A block guard is a piece of billet 6061-T6 aluminum that is cut to fit around the cylinders to brace the sleeves and help protect against sleeve walk and sleeve cracking. This is a great inexpensive way to strengthen your bottom end, but if you want to boost more than 15 psi, we highly suggest sleeving your block with our Golden Eagle Mfg. Sleeves.
"What is a scatter shield and why would I need one?"
A scatter shield is a protective piece of steel that covers the bell housing to protect the driver and spectators from injury in case of a flywheel or clutch failure. You will need one if you car runs 11.99 or quicker on any NHRA sanctioned track. The scatter shield is also NHRA certified and approved.
"I have a block that is bored out over stock size. Do you have one that will fit my bore size?"
Yes, we take factory genuine Honda head gaskets and precision CNC cut them to specific bore sizes. We always have all sizes in stock.
"I want to put a turbo on my car. How can the Golden Eagle Mfg. Vacuum Manifold help me out?"
We designed the vacuum manifold with the turbo guy in mind. When you run a turbo, there are numerous items that require
a good vacuum source. The manifold has six ( 6 ) 1/8" NPT ( pipe ) thread ports for items such as fuel pressure regulator, blow-off valve, boost gauge, boost controller, MAP sensor, etc.; and because all your vacuum sources come from one place, it makes it easier for maintenance and cleanliness, plus you only need one 1/2" Min. source from the intake manifold plenum for proper vacuum instead of having to drill and tap up to six ports in your intake manifold.
