Finally finishing up my build for the second time. Just in time for spring here.
It now has carrillo rods, balanced crank, light flywheel , ductile sleeves with 99mm 11.5/1 pistons, all new flat faced valves 1mm os on intakes, ported heads, stage 2 cams with buckets and springs, Ignitech ignition, filter in lid airbox, meth injection etc... I just cant leave anything alone :P

Today I just got the rads on, coolant in, oil in etc. and fired it up to break in the cams...what a beautiful sound. Its like birthing a child...except with less responsabilities :beer:

:clap: :clap: I'l looking forward to hearing how this goes. Are you going to get it setup on a Dyno? I'd recommend it. Also keep an eye on the temp. It could run hotter than is good for it and more cooling would be necessary.

I will get it on the dyno.There is a local shop here that has one, they said its $80CAD/run...not too bad. I probably need to do some carb tuning and ignition mapping etc before I bring it in..Ill keep ya up to date with that. Im guessing once tuned, it will make around 135hp and it may lose a bit down low from the cams.

What do you guys think it'll put out? Has anyone here went this far with their engine?

It will atcually probably run cooler than before as I have 2 small meth injection nozzles going into each stack with a progressive control controlled by tps. Will also be able to run cheap pump gas this way.
