Would probably be easier to do maintaince and clean the block in the future as well.

Add me to the list for Stinger V10 Silver Edition
I happen to think the design is good and works well, if you are talking about sandwiching another plate in the middle it would be another 5 hours of work or more by hand. As far as cleaning, all that would be necessary is to remove the barbs, brush and flush. If someone were to use a very high output pump, I could supply them with a new unrestricted barb or it could easily be punched out if necessary.

I like this design as well. We have not seen any pictures of the chamber, yet, but I think this design could be a keeper? I can't see anyother improvements.

BTW- Did you find that the 1 inlet and 2 outlets to be counter productive? Or was it too much work?

I think so too, the V10 comment was because I read someone talking about dibbs on V8 so there clearly is alot of demand for your blocks. I don't doubt the performance, as I honestly would love to own one some day

I only made the plate suggestion because I figured it was difficult to drill those tiny holes in the barb and thought you might not have considered it before.

I guess I assumed everyone seen the internals on previous posts but here it is. Here you see why my simple blocks work, the base is only .080 (2mm) then I drill those dimples .040 deep over die center. This is the same design used on all blocks except mine the (dual outlet). No it was not counter productive but there was no great performance gain either, maybe 1-2c, which to me is too close to call. I read some of Cathar's
articles and discovered that he had abandoned the dual outlet design also because the gain was so insignificant and I have to concur. The triple tubes look good though and I am considering making another triple.

Thanks FF for the killer new avatar with a great view of ya. Proof the B.O.S.S. lives

And talking about Bloks/revisions/performance and Cathar is saying a lot with one breath And he claims, in his own words, that he's got one block left "the Storm 7" and he's through with CPU's an moving on to the unanswered challenge of GPU blocks. HE claims the minimal amount of performance advanced improvements possible with CPU blocks as it relates to cost vs. price/marketing in relation to the extreme technology needed to produce a Storm 8 would require access to NASA based hyper-space machines/logistics.

So, FF, is my V8 gonna have wings and turbine jets too?
