    Depends on the coil over which most are the same,I find out the spring length and how much they drop, at most 4in. So I set the fronts all the way down then spin them up to where I think I'll.have the perfect height and install them if they are still lower then I think I just adjust a few turn and done. Max time with install 30mins

        Are the F20b pistons going into your f22b/f22a swap? What kind of comp. ratio do you think you will be getting with those? I will also be swapping my f22b head on to an f22a block so I will be following that closely.

          I talked to another member who did this build using the same piston's. With the height of the dome of the piston's and how the valve area is not as deep as the f20b. The compression is near 17, but I'll confirm that later on as I have a lot to do. Considering I have most of the bottom bits, I still have the bay interior and exterior of the cb to mainly focus on. And as well getting a important bit in the mail soon

            Damn that's a high compression number! I got the Cheddas rear strut mount bushings too. They feel like they're going to transfer a lot of new road sensations into the cabin, but I'm looking forward to installing them!

              True that is at the same time I'd need a thick head gasket which will kill the compression a bit but hey it'll be torquey which I need on the circuit since I'll spend more time in the mid rpm range.

              Lmk on the cheddas strut bushings I won't be able to test them right away sadly

                Compression ratio will be around 12.6-12.7:1 with these pistons in an otherwise F22B application.

                  Ah thank you Jarrett, I was realistically thinking near 13 comp at most again it was I only know what has been talked about have yet to fully do the homework on the ideal compression on this build with in the next month or so depending on how much time

                      So here is a bit of the slow progress on the cb, haven't touched her in over a week, been working 145hrs for the past 2wks, no days off sadly.

                      Wanted Cheddas top hats but for some reason, no one has gotten back to me from the company so I settled for the ffc




                      That's all for now

                        Looks good. Cheddas makes a CB7 top hat? What's the difference between theirs and the FFC's?

                          I spoke with Jordain about a group buy for Cheddas Auto top hats and he says he would need a group of 5 people to go in to make a run of them. I was supposed to make a thread on Tuesday, but I've been busy.

                            I.believe Cheddas auto is 2in. While ffc are 1.5in tall.

                            Sweet, if he can get that started I'm.in for rears, I've been talking to him about that
