I don't think you realize how epically ****ty that engine is. Bakelite rubber studded intake gaskets that cost over $100 each (and you need 4), timing chain tensioner that changes cam timing as you rev, nikasil blocks that can't be bored or re-honed without a $3000+ sleeve job, heinously low compression, anemic cams, e-throttles that break and cost $1000 each (you need two), and possibly the worst exhaust port design in history.

I agree... plus any ls style head fully ported will flow about the same.. Have you thought about a 317 head off of a truck? They flow the same as the 243 but have a larger combustion chamber to reduce compression.. most turbo ls guys are going with those..

The only problem with making that much power on an aluminum ls motor is walking the mains and lifting heads since they have 4 bolts per hole.. as long as you keep a close eye on detonation I don't think you will have a problem. With race gas and meth it is doable.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

There's no rule saying you couldn't. You only have to take it to the RDW for some tests. Don't think they are easy to pass, but it can be done. I guess...

Oh, I didn't know you just paid someone to do the cage. Thought you were doing it yourself.

your car has made a great stink on the internet and im not surprised that you got some sponsors now. Good job man. It "almost" makes me regret getting rid of my v8 car but i went the volvo 16v route.

I'm not a welder or a fabricator... that is why I didn't do it. Plus I wanted my cage to be done professionally since I am going to be in the 200mph club.

i'm sure it will look good, but i'm slightly skeptical that it will look better than that sort of red wine color.

Yeah I did like that red color. Grey will look real sweet though. But why paint the wheels gold? I tend to think they will look sick as hell black.

I think the wheel will really POP on Gray. Plus that other sick 122 is gray with Black BBS's.
