New ? -
i saw a pic on dyn2liv's page that had alot of holes drilled into the hammer...(the silver thing that moves back n forth on the ram)....why are those holes drilled???



Old ?

I would like your all's opinion on the amount of holes that should be drilled on the ram? im thinking about getting 4 more in the front and 4 more in the back

You can drill 8 more, front and back to have 24 total but I have seen no performance increase of that over a ram ported with 4 more, front and back, to have 16 holes total.

Polishing, turning down, flushmounting (I'm not showing what to do yet), devolumizing, taking the ram spring out, ect.

You can also cut grooves as oppose to drilling holes....but I think it is just a preference.

adrian is right, grooves or holes it is prefernece. Though I found it was easier to to do the grooves vs. driling all the small holes.

Yeah, it is easier. Holes just look better.
