I was wondering what’s the general advice with regards to setting the squish gap on the X30 engine.
Since we are restricted to just one cylinder gasket (at least in my local series) and blueprinting is not allowed, tuning the squish gap is rather limited. The way I see it, lowering the squish gap (by using a thinner gasket) will increase compression, which should result in more power. However, since we can only change the gasket that sits below the cylinder, this will also change the position of the exhaust port.
How will this effect the engine’s power, in combination with the change in compression? I’ve always aimed for the lowest allowed squish gap, however I’m guessing that there are some advantages to running a higher squish gap in certain tracks/scenarios due to the difference in exhaust port’s location.
