      Sorry guys, we have way too many irons in the fire to go out and spend a bunch of time trying to sell just a few of these. I mostly built the all motor engine because I thought it would be cool,...

      The issue is not the material the cam follower is made out of, but the fact that the cam itself is too narrow, and the forces too high. This results in the oil film breaking down or becoming...

      The old 150 wall JE wrist pins were rated at a mere 475 hp for 4... They had so many issues with them bending or breaking in these applications that we finally convinced them to make the...

      The twin scrolls spool faster. Tested already. The twin scroll versions spool 300 rpm minimum faster, and trade that for about 15whp or so ultimate / maximum wheel horsepower capacity compared to the...

      Screw swapping an AEB. The 06A stuff is only literally a couple more wires. You can put the e-throttle in without pulling the pedal box out. That said, you'll want to be doing a cable shift gearbox...

      We've done a bunch of testing with those. They are a good bit larger then the gt2871r you've been running. The twin scroll version- probably not much more lag then you've already got. Just an extra...

      For 7500 rpm redline, IECVA2's or even just an IECVA1 drop in intake cam with a stock exhaust will bring back a lot of mid range power and spool. Each step up in cams costs a few hundred rpm of spool...

      I once had to build a 1.8L 20v for a customer who was running in a class which limited displacement to that. The motor was the same specs we ~usually build but not stroked, just a forged...

      Yea, we are only doing 83mm x 92.8 at the moment. It's not a custom order situation but rather a "small production run".
