    UPDATE: Went out and bought a high quality gauge and good thing, too. Actual pressure is right at 280.

    Will hope to do some testing this weekend using all the same parts where possible and a...

    It's this.

    The profile of the Short and Snappy (SAS) is identical to the standard Ressie-style plates, i.e., the change-angle hump to ensure full pull, but is different in that it has a timing rod...

    Agreed on the hopeful details.

    Also, it occurs to me that there may well be good reason to open up the inlet side, simply because it allows for a smaller window of lift, true?

    Josh,

    To answer about the bolt, I'm using an AKA Lightning, but have had good results with Simon's bolt, and with a custom bolt I had made up for this build.

    Am also wondering if you could...

    Will be looking forward to learning what the increased input pressure does for your efficiency.

    I don't think that's off-topic in the slightest.

    Indeed, that puts a very interesting color on the matter. I'd be very interested to learn what you find in testing.

    To some of your points, I will be area matching, but am not sure what you mean by 'throttling.' Can you say more about that?

    Almost forgot to ask/clarify:

    It may not matter, but in theory, is it better to have one larger hole going from the VASA to the body, or two smaller holes (creating a manifold)?

    And if a...

    Hammer spring is matched to the valve spring. So both are super light.

    No idea of pressure, but for this next build I'll probably gauge it.

    Haven't played around with it until now, so this is...

    Actually, the CCM valve uses a fairly small area, buna o-ring sealing face. I don't think that it does, or even can, close quickly without a lot of pressure behind it.

    There's a pic of it here:
